I have been developing websites personally for almost 12 years now, 7 years professionally. I started out very basic. Copying and pasting code, stealing images, everything I made had a very "Matrix" feel to it, with the black background and green text. I like to think I've learned a thing or two and evolved a bit.
This portfolio website is a showcase of HTML5, CSS3, and Jquery. I decided to do it this way because what my clients want me to do is usually pretty primative compared to what I'm capable of. Normally, my portfolio is a very clean, corporate, boring experience. I wanted to have a little fun this time around.
I used a lot of fun new techniques on this site. All of the headings and navigation links are image free. I used the css @font-face property to apply real fonts in place of where I would have had to use images in the past. The background movement is a vertical reverse parallax animation, to give the site a bit more depth, as if you're holding the paper in your hand. The logo is a scripted sequence made up of two images.
With every project I do, I like to learn a little something, or expand on things I already know. With this site, I learned how to do scripted animations in jQuery for the logo.
