The site’s theme, Chuckanut, is custom-made by Denise Enck, owner of Quanta Web Studio (and founder/editor of Empty Mirror).
Empty Mirror uses four fonts, all available at Google Fonts.
- EM’s site title is in Ultra, designed by Astigmatic.
- The headlines are in the Trocchi font which was created by the late typographer Vernon Adams and named for the Scottish novelist, Alexander Trocchi.
- The text font is Roboto, created by Christian Robertson.
- Steve Matteson’s Cousine is a monospace font, perfect to preserve spacing in some poems.
