So as you may have noticed I’ve changed my site again. I made some minor tweaks a month or two back and as always that got me thinking about my site’s design and eventually led to a more comprehensive re-align. I use the word re-align and not redesign as much of the site has stayed the same, though much has also changed, when it comes to my own site this feels like a more natural way to do things, kind of an evolution rather than a revolution.
I’ve always wanted to use a kind of random seeming “Masonry” style grid for displaying a portfolio’s thumbnails, so I made one. I’m hard-coding the whole thing inside wordpress so I can mix it up and change things whenever I want, which is a little bit of a labour of love, but hey if you can’t love your own website then what can you love right?
I also wanted to start having a bit more fun again with my portfolio site, so I played around with the individual project pages a lot more (see below).
Which again are mostly hard-coded (I know that this can all be done with clever wordpress/PHP magic but I’m no programmer, I usually hire someone else to do any tricky wordpress integration) and I like being able to just work in a text editor and update stuff as I need.
Anyway welcome to my newly evolved website.
