In an attempt to keep my portfolio current I’ve started playing with the idea of an entirely custom designed website. I recently read about how designers today are using the same menu formats, hamburgers, bottom or top bars with 3-5 buttons, and there’s little evidence to show that it’s the most effective way to organize your page. I wanted to diverge from that and be a little more artistic in the way that I displayed my work.
I sketched out a few 3 button concepts as most of my work can be comprised in 3 main categories, and decided to go with a thin stroked icon set, ditch the words and let my work do the talking.
For now, this is still just a concept and I’m trying to work on the most effective way to implement it (wordpress, Adobe Muse, or learn the HTML to do it myself).
