I created a much more minimal version of my logo first. Then laid out a super clean type focused site. It needed to be lightweight to reduce the need of loaders and I didn't want it to be too over the top with jQuery effects.
Along with revamping my personal logo, I pulled a lot of the imagery out of my identity and refocused on clean minimal Typography. By balancing color, layout, and white space, I was able to create a sleek new look.
Utilizing HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery, I was able to build a much faster and cleaner framework for this new site. By getting rid of Bootstrap and instead utilizing a lightweight CSS Grid, I was able to make a tidy site with a fast load time.
Leveraging UI eye tracking studies, UI best practices, and clean material design, I tried to make sure this site was intuitive and easy to use over everything else.
