I originally made this website as a part of my advanced web design class at Central Michigan University. The assignment parameters were fairly straight forward, make a portfolio website and make it responsive, adaptable to different screen sizes.
The first iteration of this website utilized contrast between organic, hand-made elements and geometric, computer-generated elements. I experimented with motion on the home screen for the first time and experimented with different widgets I found online to make the site more interactive.
There were some elements and details I liked about the original website, but some things simply didn’t hold up in a responsive design and some parts of the website became over complicated. In my new site, I wanted to have some fun with patterns like I did in the previous site, but I also wanted to keep it simple and straight forward.
I kept to a more geometric theme, discarding the hand-made elements and rebranded myself, making a logo for myself by abstracting my initials. I also improved the motion on the home screen to showcase some of my different works. And I trimmed down the wireframe, making fewer pages and the website overall easier to navigate.
