I’m currently taking a web design class, which involves learning to code HTML and CSS. With the skills I am picking up I will now be able to design my own website layout to display my online portfolio.
This got me thinking…
While your work should speak for itself, you still need a well designed website to showcase it. If the website does not look very good, then you might not get the attention you’re wanting; ie: job interviews, freelance work, etc. You also need it to be simple and straight to the point. Personally, I like a clean and sleek look with a neutral color palette. That way, my work stands out.
One of my assignments for the course was to design a website for a fellow classmate. Here are some screen captures of how it turned out:
For this being my first website, I am very proud of the outcome. This experience has opened up a whole new avenue of design I hadn’t fully considered before. I can’t wait to see where this could take me!
