It’s finally here. I’ve been busting my ass on my portfolio for the past few months. I’ve learned so much in the past six months that I couldn’t stand to have my other site up.
Making your own website is probably the hardest bit of design work you can ever do. I mean, you are your own worst client. It’s awful; the back and forth and the changing of the mind every other day..or in my case, every hour.
Throughout this entire process I would look at the current design of the week at least ten times a day. If I still liked it at the end of two days, it was a keeper. Well, it took me several designs and three development processes to make a decision.
I’m really happy with my final site. Of course, I’m going to be updating and changing it as soon as I start learning new things. I would be a bad designer if I didn’t do that. I still need to do some browser and compliance testing, but I was too excited not to post it up and share it.
The new site is I Give Arial Character.
Below is the progression of my portfolios from the past 7 or 8 months. At the bottom you’ll find the winner.
