I started working on this the last week of December, when I was trying to get my mind off other things, and wrapped it all up on Sunday. I finally have a design portfolio! With information, and a list of services I offer, and a handy contact form, and a pretty logo and consistent branding that you’ll see more of when my blog redesign is done and I start working on and sharing other things.
There’s a tagline, there’s my own photography all over page headers and slides, there’s hand lettering on the logo and some of the graphics, and there’s a selection of my work laid out for you to look at. I’m keeping my Etsy shop, too, but I really needed a portfolio so I could showcase everything I offer, especially the custom packages that you can’t really put a flat price on.
I’m so pleased this is done. It had been on my list for months and months, and I’m really proud of myself because I got it to look exactly like I wanted it to and it wasn’t even hard. Time-consuming, but smooth. It was also great to look back at the work I did in 2014 and realize that there was quite a bit of it. I get caught up in these moods where I feel like I’m not productive and it’s always an eye-opener to see that no, I do get things done. There was a lot of work that I didn’t even include on the portfolio for various reasons, and I still got a solid page and a bit to show what I can do.
Now, of course, I need to figure out how to get people to the site, but at least I have a site to get them to. This was my first step on that list for the new year, which I think means I’m off to a good start.
Now go ahead and have a browse, and let me know what you think in the comments. :)
