Now it is time for my third site and third assignment in Web Design. I will be using this once completed and will be live online.
Here is my Portfolio / Blog (or as I like to call it... a BlortFolio)...
I went for a very personal, home-made look which seems to be very 'in' at the moment when it comes to portfolios. It's not to everyone's taste but I like it.
All critical views welcome :-D
Let me know any changes or improvement you think I should consider.
Yes mate. Like all sites I look at designing I get inspirations from others. I have seen a site with a phone and photos flat on the desk with pinned notes on. So i simply recreated what is actually on my desk today.
I was going to use tabbed links at the top but decided to use the links and relate them to the items on my desk as you can see. I think this has a good effect.
All layers in my PDF file I created except some Stock (royalty free) photos like the mouse, phone, paper clip and two sticky notes. (didn't know how to create the fold so used a stock photo).
This is my first photoshop draft.
The Real image canvas is 1024 x 768 (up to the edges of the lined paper).
It took me a while finding the right high resi desk texture!
