This is the design I had originally created for my portfolio website: a simple one-page layout divided into three primary sections.

I drew inspiration from various modern sites around the web as well as one of my favorite pictures of myself (a photo that has made it into every iteration of the renewed design, as you might have noticed on the current homepage).

I used a purely HTML and CSS popup modal to highlight my portfolio projects but soon realized it was a nightmare for accessibility and code validation despite seeming “cool” at first. As I learned more about best practices I felt prompted to redesign my internet home and continue honing my understanding of what makes a user experience and visual design successful.
