I have completely redesigned this website and it is now in it’s fourth official version…or maybe fifth, the less said about the first two the better!
This website is again made to be responsive like the portfolio site I made last year only this time it has a much more personal tone to it. I have been a freelance web designer for about a year now and am re-thinking the way I work. My previous website referred to myself as a business “Ride a Wave Design”, as a freelance web designer this can give the appearance that you are a much larger company. I would like to be reaching potential clients more on a personal level than a business level which is the main reason I’ve changed the site around.
I have re-added my old animation videos and changed the ‘graphic design’ section to an illustration section to include personal work. The website still shows my skills but has a much less business tone to it which I felt was very important to represent myself.
Now entering my second year as a freelance web designer I am thinking more about the clients I want to be working with and why they would choose me by simply looking at my website.
I hope you like the new site, I haven’t gone into too much technical detail but it is made using HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, WordPress and PHP.
