This domain was an assignment, but I also wanted to have some fun with it. For decoration, I used mostly personal photography except for three images, the citations for which can be seen when you roll the cursor over the image. I wanted to create something that was very youthful, fun, and interactive. The slide-like movement of photos and the entrance of the tiles below it create visual intrigue without being overly distracting. The menu at the top has clearly labeled “about me”, “resume”, and “coursework”. There are actually two ways to view the about me and coursework, through the top menu and through one of the tiles under the slides. My resume can be viewed on the third page on the menu and it is also available in PDF form to open up in another tab and download/print. The last menu option is coursework which has a list of semesters organized chronologically, and within each of those pages is a list of courses I took that semester with links to the course descriptions. The English 220 link under the Spring 2016 page links to the category “English 220” that I have created which has my work from this semester (final versions with links to drafts) and explanations of the assignments. The “categories” section which can always be viewed on the right side of the screen also has a link to the “English 220” category, as well as to the post archive, which would list all of the posts published on the website (currently just the same ones that are listed under English 220). For placeholders, I’ve created the “Extracurricular Activities” tile, which currently just has two activities, links to their websites, and a picture for each, and the “Personal Blog” tile, which has a featured image but no content yet.
