I want quite a plain looking portfolio – with some strong colour and an unusual font, with plenty of space to show the work.
I will have simple navigation – home, about, contact – and a side bar for the work divided into three categories Web, Print and Personal. I will use the design as a variation in business cards.
I like the initial idea created in Photoshop. I set up a rough layout in Dreamweaver to see if I could incorporate Pictobrowser but was not convinced of the results. I set up a Flickr account and created a set of images that were imported into Pictobrowser – code was then copied and pasted into Dreamweaver. I tweaked the colours and transparency but aesthetically I am not happy with the results. I think that I may go down the slim box route as I like its simplicity.
