This was a semester long project I took on in my Introduction to Web Authoring course. This course has pushed me to become an independent student whether it be from researching for hours on how to code, to finding a source out of class to help me during my free time. Overall, I ended up obtaining most of the information I needed to, to pull off a good-looking site.
Going onward, I plan on having this sort of independence applied to all of the work that I do for the rest of my life. If I don’t know how to do something, I will be sure to save time and effort by researching and asking around before trying and probably failing to understand how to do it by myself.
- Finding recent pictures of me that would size properly to the dimensions I needed to work with
- Finding designs that would fit the characteristics of being clean, minimalistic, user-friendly and professional
- Picking a layout that worked for me and sticking with it.
- Finding colors that complement each other.
- Getting rid of outdated pictures and replacing them with fresh relevant ones.
- Researching what types of colors work best with the eyes including users that may have a sight impediment.
- Researching what types of layouts employers want to see in a portfolio
- Dialing back my creativity and putting myself in someone else shoes when it comes to practical fonts, heading sizes and coloring.
