Spring 2016 - Winter 2018
Over the past 3 years, I've displayed my graphic design and other work on a variety of sites, ranging from Virb to Squarespace. Everytime I switched to a new platform, I was constantly fiddling with the HTML and CSS to get the right look. The themes look good on paper, but I found that usability was consistently lacking. Last year, I decided to take on web development more seriously, and this website is represents the culmination of much of what I've learned so far.
Online courses such as Codecademy were helpful in understanding the basics, but the best learning experiences for me involved adapting HTML5UP templates for friends who needed websites. Understanding how all of the markup, style, and scripts interacted and came together was immensely helpful. This portfolio was originally built with the Foundation framework, but as I started building out my own infrastructure, I've gradually phased out those components.
