I have redesigned my portfolio website. It is a new WordPress theme which I have customised and I am happy that it is better than the design it replaces.
Like many user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) designers I spend all day making interfaces look more intuitive, cleaner and eye catching. My own site gets neglected and so I start to build up a list of ideas that I would like to include in the redesign.
This redesign uses a single page layout to provide a quick overview of myself, my experience and work examples. There is a much improved portfolio section, contact details are tidier and the site is responsive. This ensures the layout adapts to different screen resolutions and looks good on all platforms.
The other benefits are behind the scenes. I have optimised the site to work quickly on all platforms and perform better in search engines. I now have more control over the titles, keywords and descriptions of each page. This allows each webpage to be indexed and display better on different devices.
More and more people are using phones and tablets to search the web and my portfolio website is no different. My site analytics show nearly 75% of those looking at my website do so on mobile devices!
I hope you like the site and feel free to give any feedback on the redesign Should you require any help or advice designing your company website in WordPress, please contact me.
