The interface of the site is extremely simple on purpose, so that the user can fully focus on the content of the pieces without being distracted by any unneeded graphical interference.

In addition, content readability is always at the best thanks to a robust responsive adaptive layout and a flexible responsive typography.

For what concerns the logo/favicon of the site, what better way to represent the concept of sempiternity—existence within time but infinitely into the future—than a circular, indeterminate progress indicator?

Such circular existence within time is reiterated by the background color of the page, which hue is cyclically rotated over time according to the hour of the day.

The index of the pieces.

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