Since I graduate from Michigan State University this May, I decided to rebrand myself. A large part of my branding process included the demonstration of my web design capabilities. I consider myself an interesting character with a liking for cartoonish illustration and I wanted to translate this into my brand and personal site.
To illustrate my youthful sense of design, I chose four basic colors and desaturated them. I chose Brandon Grotesque and Quicksand as my typefaces. The bold, geometric and sharp feel of Brandon Grotesque is balanced by the soft, bouncy and round characteristics of Quicksand.
Since responsive design is imperative to the web, I wanted to create a design that would allow full scalability in all contexts. While I enjoy Twitter Bootstrap, I wanted to handcode this myself to really stretch my limits and show what I can do.
This site has been live for about two weeks now; I am finding more and more small details to change, but I would appreciate any and all comments on the site! Since this is what the world will see, I want it to be as polished as possible.
