I’m Brian Gardner, a Chicago-based designer, WordPress expert, and the creator of Powder—a base WordPress theme for Full Site Editing. Build something cool, pair it with a child, or use it for a client.
I believe that good design encompasses pushing the envelope through experimentation and exploration of novel concepts. It involves cultivating a creative vision and embracing an out-of-the-box mindset, ultimately creating unique, unparalleled designs.
In September 2021, I officially joined the Developer Relations team at WP Engine. My position is an excellent fit, as it allows me to spend each day immersed in areas I love: design, WordPress, community.
In my free time, you can find me frequenting the local Starbucks or running a nearby trail. I’m also an unapologetic Taylor Swift fan.
Speaking of music, these are my all-time favorite songs:
- Here’s Where The Story Ends – The Sundays
- Black – Pearl Jam
- the lakes (the long pond studio sessions) – Taylor Swift
- Do What You Have to Do – Sarah McLachlan
- Put Me Down – The Cranberries
Moving right along, I invite you to follow me on Twitter, stalk me on Instagram, and connect with me on LinkedIn. You can also check out my colophon to see how I built this website.
Until then, may the odds be ever in your favor.
