SIMPLE / not so simple
I am finally in the last stages of updating my portfolio site. It has taken so much longer than I anticipated that my temporary cover page is getting a bit stale. Now, that all my deadlines are behind me for the year, I am finally able to properly focus on wrapping it up. Which is exciting and tricky at the same time - like all fun projects are.
One thing I have learned over the past few years is that making something look or feel simple and casual is not necessarily easy. The other night at a holiday party I was chatting with a designer about this and we agreed it can take a looooong time to get to simple. Sometimes things easily fall together, but most times it is more of a process of trials, mis-steps and vision refining. That conversation made me feel a little better about my delay on my site. I have a goal for my site. I want it to be simple and easy to use and just feel like you (virtually) stopped by my studio for a cup of tea, a warm chat and you happened to see some images lying around the studio while you were there. Ideally, the will resonate with some and with those we will chat more and begin dreaming up something fun.
I will keep you posted and would love to hear your thoughts once it's live....Until then, back to building it xo
