My website is up, and it’s turned out pretty much the way I wanted it to.
I “finished” designing it some time in Feb. I even did an implementation of it on MEAN with KeystoneJS for a CMS. Then I got busy with another project, and by the time I came back to this, I’d learned a few things about WordPress. So I threw out that implementation and started again from scratch. The design changed substantially. Content became tighter. Also, I had a clearer vision of where my design career should go.
Here’s a complete list of the languages, tools, templates, services, and technologies I’ve used:
- LAMP stack
- WordPress [platform, documentation]
- Portfolio CPT
- Ubuntu Desktop
- Chrome dev-tools
My new website showcases the kind of custom website design and development I can do for my clients. It is fast, usable, accessible, responsive, and in my admittedly biased opinion, not too bad to look at 🙂. I learned a lot of things making this and I have about ten draft blog posts lined up to document some of them.
The last thing I designed was the comments section on blog posts. I’d missed it out entirely 😳. Anyway, the website is ready to launch, so here goes! 🚀🍾
