various web design projects of 2010
These are various web projects I’ve done over the last year that reached various levels of completion. There’s an all-code layout, some purely design pieces, but the ones that made it to code were pretty cool I thought.
First, obviously, is my personal blog layout. I don’t keep up with any blog well, but this one was an accomplishment to build. You can see it in action here.
The grungy typewriter musician layout made it to HTML code but was never adapted to any kind of CMS or WordPress or anything.
The parchment-looking portfolio minisite I was really excited about, and it made it to code and I’m pretty sure to some sort of WordPress thingy, but I guess I never finished it. Not sure why I never ended up using it… I remember having trouble formatting text around the image of myself at the bottom right, so maybe that was it. But I kind of also remember ending up with a usable, finished theme from it. Oh well. Oh no I did finish it, I just found it . I finished an HTML/CSS translation of it, but never took it into WordPress. Not sure why, but the coded version right now works fine.
I got really into cooking a while back, and still am, so I mocked up the food blog layout. It made it through to HTML/CSS.
I really like the blue portfolio idea. I never used it because just thinking about gave me trouble figuring out how to adapt it into a workable WordPress layout. It would be really cool, and I’d be super proud of it, but I’m cool with something simple like I’ve got at the moment. I tend to get wordy too, so having something that works large and small is probably better than this one.
