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 good design is about pushing boundaries and experimenting with new ideas. It’s about dreaming, thinking outside the box, and using that to create something truly unique.
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
Until then, may the odds be ever in your favor.
