Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.-Steve Jobs
After taking a look at some WordPress themes and last Mondays morning lecturer from Dennis, I changed my design a bit. I wanted to make my home page a little bit more personal. I want it to have a short introduction about myself and my website. The rest of the design is close to my previous design.
The only problem/concern I had with my design is: “How do I make my design into a WordPress theme that I can use on my website?”. I have made websites in the past but I never used WordPress. I always coded every page by hand. So I have to do some research in how to use WordPress. Because at this moment I only see WordPress as something that is limiting my creativity and design skills. But I’m sure that I can find a way to make it work, there are a lot of professional websites who use WordPress, so I should be able to do it also :p.
So what I will be working on this week is doing research on “How to use WordPress in a professional way that doesn’t limit me in my design ideas”. I’m sure that when I have found a way to make it work that it then won’t take me long to create my design because I already have decent knowledge of web programming.
After I finish my design I will start with filling my portfolio. I Have a lot of projects from my previous study and I also have a lot of cool projects I am working on at home that I would love to write about and share.
I am also working on some more personal blog posts, I will post them soon.
Next week I will have a blog post wherein I will give an in-depth look in my design and why I made my design choices.
