Portfolio website is very much in progress

Things have been pretty quiet over the last few weeks, which is a good thing. I’m making really good headway on my portfolio website, which is both tedious, and a joy. It’s been fun pulling a few of my older projects from the stacks of CDs and DVDs boxed up in storage, cracking open the odd vintage Quark file (with InDesign of course) and creating nice previews/layouts of the projects.

Mixing up a bit of my older stuff with all my latest stuff, and putting it all side-by-side is pretty interesting. I’ll weed through it all once it’s all together to see what makes the final cut. Above in the graphic, you can see a few things that probably won’t be making it into the final collection, but it’s been nice to get it all into place just for my own records. There’s been lots and lots of projects over the years, but I’ve noticed that it’s amazing how much of the website work just slips through the cracks. Or even worse, there’s so much web work that’s just no longer live, and sometimes screen captures don’t do the websites justice.

I’m going to try and stay on top of it better now that this new portfolio is built using WordPress—that will really make it easier than ever to stay on top of all this stuff. I’ll be photographing some of my work as well, but I’m saving all that to do at one time when I have everything pulled together, and I know exactly what I need to shoot.
