Portfolio Progress

SELF-EVALUATION So I've been making very slow progress with my final portfolio site since "life" seems to always be getting in my way but I'm happy with where's its heading. It will be great to finally get a fully fledged site published and one I can easily manage and update myself!!! I tried to make the design reflect my unique design "hand" and sensibilities while keeping it simple and letting the work shine. I can't wait to get my lightbox up and working! I'm a little nervous about the technical road blocks I have yet to cross but either way I've gained a lot of web knowledge in this course and am confident that it will all come together in the end as planned.

4 organization of elements
5 restraint and subtlety
6 using color to it's full potential
7 doing something that no one else has done

Many of these items are also considerations that make great print page layout!

Just lovely...

I wish I could say that I designed this! Sadly, I don't recall who the designer is...
