It's been about 3 years since I've made any major changes to my branding or portfolio site. Over those years I've grown as a designer, developer and most importantly as a person, I want my new branding and site to reflect this growth.
I'm very proud of the work I've put into the design and development of this site and feel it shows off my style and skill.
What I've learnt the most from working on this is to step back from the screen, be inspired by the world and people around you, then to take that inspiration and use it in your work
Looking really good! What did you use to build the site? Looks like it's not using a CMS?
Thank you for the kind words!
Everything here is HTML & Sass, I use my own grunt build set-up to compile each page via components that make up each layout e.g every page has a
headso I include that and pass variables to change things such as the
description. So I use these for things such as the navigation and footer, think of them as includes in PHP but done via Grunt on build.
Would be interested if anyone would like me to explain this further in a blog post?
Very nice site Adam, love the minimal style but still managed to keep it interesting, overall good job.
I would be interested in your build, have you got a reop of it i could look over?
I don't have a public repo for you take a look at but if you want to send me an email I'll see what I can do. Keep an eye on my blog too I'll get something put together for that: https://blog.adam-marsden.co.uk/
Oh cool! I haven't had a chance to mess with Grunt too much yet, but I'll have to think of it next time I redo mine. I'd love to see a little more as well like Stephen.
Keep an eye on my blog too I'll get something put together for that: https://blog.adam-marsden.co.uk/
How are you powering the blog. Is that just another compiled template and you recompile your whole site when you update the blog?
The blog is using https://medium.com/ actually!
Looks great, love the colours and card theme.
Nice to see other folks from West Yorkshire on here too.
Thanks for the kind words :)
You from West Yorkshire too? We should meet for a Tea/Coffee sometime! Hit me up!
Yes, I'm in Leeds, running a small company called Pocketworks that does mobile shizzle.
Coffee is a great idea sometime, where you based?
I'm in Dewsbury so only 20 minutes away from Leeds! Pop me an email and we'll find a good day for it!
Aaaahhh me XSS
Would be nice for an easier way to go back and view work without having to mash the back button a bunch of times.
Otherwise, good site.
You'd like an extra way to get back to the work page from the case studies other than the navigation bar? A nice little button at the bottom with "Back to work" maybe?
