Interactive Media: Portfolio Wrap-up

April 14, 2009

Working on the whole Portfolio thing again today. It’s nearly finished, but I kind of feel like it’s a little… empty? I’d been pretty confident about liking this minimalistic gray thing that I have going on but I’m not really sure if I’m happy with it anymore. I don’t really think it’s worth going back and figuring out an actual color scheme, seeing as the entire site is pretty functional and nice. Considering I have other finals to work on that I have been putting aside so I can work on this full time, I think I’m going to just keep with this coloration, and I can change it later on.

The last thing I need to work out is how to embed my blog somehow into the website. I know I could probably create a custom theme for wordpress that would make my blog look just like my website, but i’d much rather have it embedded somehow than merely have the “blog” link take the viewer off-site.

I’ve been researching some options and I think I’ll mess around with this IFrame stuff and see how simple that is.

That’s all for now. Over and Out.

Interactive Media: Resume

April 7, 2009

I’ve had much instruction from both my mother and father on the subject of resume´s and their importance in my pitiful life. As such, I’m pretty confident about being able to make a decent resume´ that will look appealing and have the proper information.

As usual, however, that little hard-working, overachieving bit of me had to nag and worry. So I’ve gone and done a bit of research on the specifics of a graphic design resume´ and the kind of things people are looking for in a portfolio before I waste three hours putting something together, only to realize I’ve done it wrong.

So enjoy.
