Flow 1

Portfolio prototype

Project description: As my first project i had to make a markup / prototype of what my dream portfolio would look like. The overall idea behind the project was to give me an understanding of the concept of a portfolio as well as how a portfolio is used as a tool of communication to future employer.

My design: I went for a simple yet proffesional design, and here is the result:

Redesign: Is the website that you are using right now!

Learning

Photoshop: At the start of the semester we were introduced to the basics of photoshop, however i was already self taught in photoshop and had some experience with it. I used this program to resize and crop images and to make all the projects i put in it.

Experience Design To be able to do make this project i was introduced for the first time to Experience Design which I used to create a simple interactive click-through prototype. At the end of the project i had mastered the capability of Experience Design.

Flow 2

Portfolio Website

Project description:

Now it's time to implement a working online version of your portfolio in the form of a website that you develop from scratch using HTML and CSS. Use your prototype as a presentation - Perhaps you get close to the first draft, maybe your project takes a new and unexpected creative direction?

My design: I went straight into coding the website, however I started to dislike the prototype and made a whole different version which at the end was a way better design. Here is the result:

Redesign: As a redesign for the portfolio and my old website, I have created this website from scratch!

Learning

Html: In this flow I was introduced to Hypertext Markup Language which is the standard markup language for creating web pages and web applications. This was very exciting and caught my interest straight away. After learning the basics I got this project and had to put it straight into use.

CSS: I was also taught Cascading Style Sheets which is a style sheet language used for describing the presentation of a document written in a markup language. This allowed me to make the website look good.

JQuery: We weren't taught JQuery, but i found a script online which made the smooth scrolling possible.

Learning

Html: Now this was the second project using Html so everything went a bit more smoothly this time.

Css:For this project we were introduced to media queries which was a big part of the project as the website had to be responsive.media quiries idea is Instead of looking for a type of device, they look at the capability of the device. Media queries can be used to check many things, such as: width and height of the viewport.

Jquery: At the start we were introduced to JQuery which is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML. It is free, open-source software. For this project we added smooth scrolling when clicking on things in the navigation bar.

Learning

Photoshop: Used photoshop to scale all the images and also to fix them as well as creating the color of the background image.

Experience Design: Used it to showcase some of the redesigns. At this point this program only has limits for me and makes me feel i have to move on to another program.

Html: I got a better understanding of html and how to make the markup and I probably took the biggest leap in html in this project as it was a lot of coding at the i end I felt my self starting to really understand it and coding faster.

CSS: Learned how to use grid which was groundbreaking for me and helped me alot with this project as its makes it easier to create responsive websites I also got a better understanding of CSS transition.

JQuery/JS: Is really something I see i would like to master at some point. I used it to create the smooth scrolling the hamburger menu and also the skill bar.

Illustrator: Used this to create my logo but at the end I didn't think it was necessary for the website, I might implement it later or for when I redesign it again.
