HEY GUYS! Portfolio v.7 is officially live!
View it here.
So that thing I’ve been working on for the past two months after mucho trial, error, sharing progress on my Instagram, start-overs, and crying, I’ve gone live on my portfolio site.
As I’ve said before, I really liked my old site, but it was time for an update, and also to put all those learned skills to practical use. I still keep with my themes of bold, playful typography and personality; however I wanted to simplify the homepage and give individual attention to all of the projects I share on the site. No more thumbnails. No more portfolio sections (print, identity, interactive). I had too much stuff. More whitespace. Larger images. I also introduce layering and depth. I’m starting to get obsessed with it.
And above everything, responsive. That last part was tricky, since I wanted to add a scrolling experience to all my project pages, and most scrolling animation libraries don’t do mobile well. That’s where Prinzhorn’s Skrollr.js came in. Not to say I didn’t have some debugging to do, but it was truly a life send. So easy to use too. Highly recommend it.
If you want to see all I used to build it, look at my humans.txt file. Be sure to look at my 404 page too. Had to do something a little extra.
That being said, please give a look, and if you dig it, like and share it guys. I caught a mini-cold working so hard on this thing. I’m going to sleep.
