The simple-on-purpose site interface lets users fully focus on the content of the pieces, without the risk of being distracted by any unneeded graphical interference.

The content readability is always at its best thanks to a robust responsive adaptive layout and a flexible responsive typography.

The logo/favicon of the site resembles a circular, indeterminate progress indicator: what better way to represent the concept of sempiternity, that is none other than existence within time but infinitely into the future?

The same concept is reinforced through the background color of the page, which hue is cyclically rotated over time according to the hour of the day.

Pieces in Sempiternity often share a common motif, which is identifiable thanks to a pixel art icon opening the short story.
