I’m trying to make my portfolio simple, but with one consistent theme that will draw people in. In my early draft-ish versions I’ve been using one of my favorite pictures that I’ve ever taken, while I was driving through the Badlands.
I really like the blue-brown color scheme, and want to use that throughout my portfolio. I’m playing with the color scheme and I think that is a very accomplishable goal!
What is more difficult for me to figure out is how to orient my writing projects within the website. Julie said to make it look “less like essays,” so now I’m trying to work out how to do that. I honestly have no idea how to form them in a non-essay-looking way, so if anyone has any suggestions, please throw them this way! I have exactly no sense of aesthetics.
I’m really excited to learn how to do this online stuff, because I feel like all my future employers are going to expect me to play my role as a millennial and make all their websites look pretty. Gotta play the part! I’m also glad that I have this opportunity to think about my undergraduate education as one comprehensive whole, and see how everything fits together.
