Massive Blue - My Realigned Portfolio
I last relaunched my portfolio site in May of 2009 and I was very happy with the improved direction and look then, however things have changed somewhat over the past year and I felt that I needed to try and better convey my interests and my clients work in a realign of my portfolio site for 2010 and beyond. The new Massive Blue:
Transparency, RGBA & CSS3
While it is my portfolio site, like my blog it is a playground and experiment of myself, my style and what can be achieved in modern web design. Webkit users are treated to a colour-cycling effect on the homepage background which extends to the background of the logo as well through some tricky PNG transparency. Each individual portfolio entry is also colour-treated to match the primary colour of the work done, and almost all of the content is coloured with RGBA.
Because of some of the techniques I have employed on my site a few people may experience some technical issues, I do apologise for this and hope that it isn’t too bad. Like my 1080px grid explanation from my May 2009 redesign post, it is also a good barrier for entry.
I would like to extend a few thanks – Rogie King for the lovely Browser Chrome that I hear is soon be released as a downloadable package – Jason Cale for helping me with the Grid Overlay jQuery (check the link in the footer), to the Dribbble community that commented and praised my preview shots and to all of the lovely comments I have received on my Twitter stream @sambrown, thanks so much!
Look out for some new and exciting portfolio entries very soon.
