Continuing on from yesterday…

Today’s progress has been a lot faster in terms of knowing what and where my content should go (this is only the landing page so far.. I have many more pages to create, but for now… apart from some very obvious images…  and possibly copy….) I am almost ready to design the next media query for tablets!

HURRAH!

 

Design below!

Something I’ve not posted before…

The last couple of days I have set myself to work on my website, to re-design the whole thing and make it work with mobile and tablets as well as desktop.

Today I finally got my menu in position and the way I want it to work!

I’m kind of going for a minimal design, but more so with the character of my logo.

So, here we have a simple 3 bar menu icon designed in pure CSS (honestly, w3 schools is great for these kinds of things to teach you!)

This is the mobile view for the moment, I’m concentrating on the mobile design first to then adapt towards the larger viewports.

My logo in it’s smallest form, and some random text called ‘Hipsum’ from VS Code.

Click on the bars and you get this drop down menu, which overlays the main content. The close button does work!

Identity and Branding | Ahoy Designs

Identity and Branding | Ahoy Designs

 This whole unit was really enjoyable. We were in a team of four, but later three, so spreading out the work was easy. Our task was to make ourselves into a graphic design company, with a fully functioning website, business cards, a letter head, and other promotional materials. I was tasked with producing the website, This was a fantastic opportunity to practice my HTML and CSS coding skills, and also play around with something new. jQuery. This is live, at http://ahoydesign.businesscatalyst.com/ just to see it function. However please do not share our information, as we aren’t sure if we’re going to continue this in the future.

We themed ourselves around a nautical concept. The word Ahoy is a greeting but also used to flag another ship. As a team, we thought this could be loud and quite fun to play around with. All our packaging is based around the life buoy and a good use of Orange. We’re really proud of what we have produced in such a short space of time and between three people

Website Development Update

At the moment, I am html coding my own design site, in the hope that I will be rid of the monstrosity that it is currently.

My thoughts are to keep it minimal in content with the colours in monotone for stylistic reasons and because, you can’t go wrong with black and white anyway. It’s smart, simple and doesn’t give too much away. My personality, however is full of enthusiasm, fun and the odd mad adventure. My site needs to reflect the more sophisticated (HA!) and professional side of me, which hardly gets used, being me.

Next on the agenda, is to add my skill set, a portfolio of work and probably a list of things I have designed for people. (but we’ll see!!!)

Advice is as welcome as opinions and general comments at this stage. Nothing is set in stone yet, as I am working it all out for now.

(As a side note, the colour borders will disappear for the final design, before it goes live)
