got a makeover!

Today will mark the third redesign for my personal website.  I think this time around I’m very close to getting where I wanted.

When I got the site, I wanted a way to showcase the work I’ve done in the past as well as provide a really seamless experience for whoever is checking this site out.  My old design had a few pages – About Me, Portfolio, Contact Page, and a little snippet of digg feeds of articles I recently dugg – but I felt like some of the content there was forced just to fill up the space.  I thought a redesign was in order.

This new design now incorporates a one-page homepage that displays everything I wanted to share and a really easy way to go through the portfolio items.  The last two designs were also dark and grungy, so I wanted to try something light.

From start to finish, it took me about a week to complete:

  • 1 day for gathering requirements
  • 2 days of wireframing
  • 3 days of mocking up the design
  • 1 day for programming the HTML/CSS/JavaScript

There are still some kinks to work out (i.e. the portfolio accordion section doesn’t animate as smooth as it should), but overall I’m pretty happy with it.

What do you think about the new
