Helping Khoi Vinh migrate to ExpressionEngine


f there be classics of web design then is surely among them. The personal site of Khoi Vinh, now Design Director of, its design is so obvious and authoritative that it almost should be ubiquitous, and yet of course it’s unique. It has few rivals in the art of employing spacing to augment reading.

In January 2008 Khoi announced that he was switching the site’s publishing system from MovableType to ExpressionEngine. I offered to help out and he took me up on it. So I’ve written up a detailed explanation of the ExpressionEngine templates that now serve up as of v7.1. See “How was converted to EE”. homepage
