My name's Paul, and paulbohm.com will be my personal weblog and portfolio. I plan to post articles, essays, projects and code on the weblog, and add the most interesting works to my project list. I'm looking for a simple but deliberate design to present my projects and articles in a good light.
I live in San Francisco and work as an engineer for a startup called Dropbox. I help build large internet applications and write about code, startups, graphs and things like that.
I like designs that are simple but not plain. At home, my room is white and empty except for a black bed. The few things that I own, I store in a small room hidden behind a bookshelf. This keeps my room free of clutter, but it also stands out in its simplicity. I like that it's simple and functional at the same time.
In terms of visual language i like retrofuturism, math symbols (lambda), graphs, anachronistic items/combinations, molecules, zeppelins, and other stuff like that - but i don't need it featured prominently - just some hints might be enough. i like analog touches in designs: dirty edges and transitions, inkdrops and smears. i care about thoughtful details.
