Have you made a personal website? If not, you should! It's about time for me to stop procrastinating and start this project that I have been planning to do for a long long time. I have tried learning HTML, tried making a website on Wordpress, tried asking my IT friends for help...but due to my lack of coding ability, I couldn't get it to do what I want to do. So I decided to try Squarespace. Honestly, they have so many beautiful templates and so easy to use that I can never turn back now.
So here is a quick sneakpeak of my website:
I want my website to be very simple, yet bold, colorful and graphical. I have just set up my header and my blog underneath. There are still some work to do on my portfolio pages and writing an about me, which I touched on in my post Writing: About Me.
Here are some designers' websites that I have been looking at for inspiration:
Derek Boateng - his website is done in squarespace too. I like the simple but fun graphics.
Poulin Morris - a graphic design firm. Their website is so simple and easy to navigate. But most importantly, I just love their environmental graphics!
NBBJ - when in doubt, I always look at NBBJ's website for quick and easy way to organize information.
I will post my website up once it's up and running. In the mean time, you can read about 7 Web Design Trends to Look Out for in 2014 while I go work on my website...
If you have made a website, or seen good websites that you want to share with us, post it in your comments! The more inspiration the merrier :)
