From October 2013 I had a vision of what I really wanted my website to be like - both aesthetically and functionally. My online presence needed to reflect my personality as well as showcasing my research, designs, journal and CV. I designed this responsive website through visualising my design ideas on Illustrator and Photoshop. I then worked closely with the developer briefing each template with slices, navigation, pixel info and hex codes. Following the initial creative and coding stages, we then applied post creative development to match the live site with the intial proposals. Once the design was drafted online I felt a surface print, incorporating my colours and things I love e.g ladybirds, butterflies and toadstools, would bring another dimension to the site. I worked closely with Wing Ting-Tung who brought to life my vision of the bespoke print. The site has a bespoke content management system to help make editing and uploading as a efficient as possible for myself.
Today I launched the site after months of designing, developing and uploading content. We now move into SD.com 2.0 with additional functionality showcasing my research further.
I would like to say thank you to Stephen Darlington and Wing Ting Tung for helping me produce a website I am proud of.
