Learning how to HTML5

So now I’ve reached the fun part in creating this Giornalismo theme: the actual creating. Now is the time where things all come together and all of the ideas I’ve had in planning how this thing will work all get put into motion.

Done with the designs, now onto the production

So even with the busy and crazy schedule I have now with college starting up again and essentially three jobs to juggle, I’ve found the time to finish off the mobile designs for Giornalismo (not that’s anything too hard given the fact that I need only one design per template).
