Digital Me – Website

After my tutorial with matt about making a word press website I felt more confident when it came to making one for my own portfolio of work. I wanted to follow the theme and colours using my logo to help guide my website. To create my website I used word press and with that I used the theme ‘Singl’ as I felt this would work well with my concept of a portfolio.

My website I created a about pages first to make sure that everyone knew who I was as a person and a designer. I wanted to show who I was as a designer by explaining what my skills were and also explain what I want to do. Screen Shot 2018-06-04 at 12.32.04.png

I then created a portfolio page where I made thumb nails of all my projects and hyperlinked them all to separate pages that I would then put my work onto. This would help people guide themselves around my website and click on the separate parts of my portfolio work. I included all of my portfolio work underneath the heading portfolio and had hyperlink within the thumbnails.

I also wanted to include my cv within my website so that anyone who seen it would see my CV as well. The cv helps people know who I am and what skills and qualifications I have. I included this on a separate page after my portfolio.

I also placed my Instagram and twitter page underneath my page so that people could see other work I had done. I have both a twitter and a Instagram page that display my work that i’m currently doing and work i’ve done in the past.

Website Development

Website development

My website needed to display my brand with and with out the logo. I came up with a few idea of how to use the lines as the theme i would use throughout. I also thought about using my typeface within the website to connect it to everything else. I did a few sketches on how I wanted the website to look.

My website needed to display my brand with so I decided to use the line within my logo in the top bar of the website along with my logo. I also put all my information for each web page in the middle because i felt this worked well.

When thinking about other website I thought that they don’t always use there logo on every page. Once on another tap the top display normally opens up. So I use the line alone the whole of the top and use the logo only on the home page. I felt the lines needed to be the mark of my website. I feel the line were the thing that made the website link to the brand.
