Personal Portfolio Website

The final deadline for this assignment isn’t until March, but we had a deadline today to present what we have done so far.

I am quite happy with how my portfolio is turning out, I am very interested in simplistic designs which are easy for the user to navigate.

The idea for the website started with the domain, I was trying to find a custom URL that would work for me. During my research, I came across the .ph domain, which is from the Philippines. Unfortunately jose.ph was already taken, but mrjose.ph was not. To me, this sounded quite humorous but also classy and gentlemanly. This is why I decided to use a classy looking typeface for the logo and a pinstripe suit style background. To me this, along with the white content background, it looks a bit like an open suit, showing the shirt behind.

My portfolio site can be viewed here.
