I’ve been pondering on this one for a while now. I really wanted to break the mold for the typical website and present my personal portfolio in a different kind of way. The web is a really cool place these days, and inspiration is always right around the corner.
My new website is certainly a work in progress (read: BETA), but I’ve really enjoyed the challenge of crafting a different kind of user experience.
Without going into too much nitty-gritty, my new website is definitely a mobile-first approach, and is geared towards the modern web user. IE9 is probably out on this one… but it’s time to embrace (at least for my personal website) the future, and welcome modern web standards. My first tests in Chrome, Firefox and Safari proved to be successful, and I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunities I have with this new setup.
Finally, I wanted my website to be at least a little fun/nerdy. While Flash websites are long since gone, I believe we have lost something in this uber-flat word… and that is a sense of personality in web design. I’m a firm believer that motion is the new “flat,” and I want to incorporate more animation into my web work in the future.
