HEY GUYS! Portfolio v.7 is officially live!
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.
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.Source: thegeekdesigner.com
