Hi, I'm Dylan. I'm a Product Designer making unique, simple, and human centered experiences.

  1. Duplicate this template to your Notion workspace. Ensure that ‘share to the web’ is on in Notion.
  2. Create a site in Super, using your duplicated template as the Notion URL.
  3. Set up your fonts and add the code to Super and configure your options:
  4. Fonts

    There are two themes for fonts. You’ll need to choose which theme you want and add the fonts and weights listed below to a new web project in your Adobe Typekit account. Once you’ve done that you can paste the Unique ID into the code. Editorial PS Fournier: Light Reason New: Regular and Medium Rational Neue Haas Unica: Light, Regular, Regular Italic

    If you don’t have a Typekit account you can rely on the chosen Google Webfonts as a fallback instead. They’re a pretty good match, here’s the difference:

    Editorial theme


    Rational theme

    Using your own font choices

    If you want to change the fonts you’ll need to add custom overrides in the CSS editor.

    :root {
      --font-family-primary: [your-font-goes-here], serif !important;
      --font-family-secondary: [your-font-goes-here], sans-serif !important;
    Code for Super Editor

    1. Go to Code > Global site code 2. Paste the following code into Head

    <!-- /// Hosted styles /// -->
    <!-- Using the hosted stylesheet will ensure you automatically get future updates and fixes. Any custom overrides should be done in the CSS area of your Super settings. -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://iamsamsmall.github.io/cy/style.css">
    <!-- /// Hosted fonts /// -->
    <!-- Fonts for "editorial" theme -->
    <!-- Google fonts -->
    <link rel="preconnect" href="https://fonts.gstatic.com">
    <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Work+Sans:wght@400;600&family=Nanum+Myeongjo&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">

    <!-- Typekit -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://use.typekit.net/mrh3xxw.css">
    <!-- /// Theme options /// -->
    <!-- Colour theme: change the name of the file to pick your colour 
      Options: [cotton], [charcoal], [coppice]
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://iamsamsmall.github.io/cy/colour/[option].css">
    <!-- Font theme: change the name of the file to pick your fonts (requires set up with Typekit or Google Fonts, see above) 
      Options: [editorial], [rational]
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://iamsamsmall.github.io/cy/fonts/[option].css">

    3. Paste the following code into Body

    <!-- Navigation -->
    <nav class="nav">
      <div class="left">
        <a class="nav-link" href="/">Cy</a>
      <div class="right">
        <a class="nav-link" href="/projects">Projects</a>
        <a class="nav-link" href="/about">About</a>
        <a class="nav-link" href="/writing">Writing</a>

4. Make sure you’ve done these things before you go live

Go live checklist
Change all links in the footer database
Check the favicon, update if necessary in the snippet code
Amend the meta description in the snippet code
Update the share image in the snippet code
Check that the Show or hide page properties option in Super settings is set to ‘Show’
Check that all navigation labels and links are correct and that they point to the right pages. Note, they do not automatically update when you amend page names or add new pages.
Add pretty links for your pages, projects, and articles into Super’s pretty URL settings. By default you’ll need to use projects/ and writing/, you can amend these if you want but you’ll need to add CSS overrides.

Chicagos Flag Is Best

Flags are a big part of human history, and since the advent of the nation state they've come to represent great things (and, unfortunately, many terrible things too). But they are banners behind which earth shaking movements rallied. Their design matters and it effects millions.
