Finally! It’s here — after hours of hard work, frustrations, and learning curves, I have just launched my new website and portfolio.
As you’re reading this, I’m guessing you’ve already found my new (and first ever) blog via my new website — however, if you haven’t you can view it along with my work at: jakecritchlow.co.uk — I designed and built it all completely by myself, so please feel free to give me your feedback and help me improve it! This was the first fully responsive site I have ever attempted to build, a sort of side project with great dividends — as front end development, and WordPress development are two skills that I aim to build up over the next 12 months.
If you’re interested, the site was built from scratch upon the bare bones of the bootstrap grid — and this blog is running on WordPress. The theme I am currently using is Less by Jared Erickson, which I have modified and tweaked, in an attempt to get it looking somewhere close to my main site. I realise it’s a long way off perfect just yet, however that’s a task for a rainy day!
Anyway, from now on I will be posting on my new shiny blog about a variety of subjects — from projects I am currently working on, to collaborations, to my thoughts on the design world and experiences. I look forward to developing myself, and writing skills via this new venture.
Get at me with any tips and advice — I think I need them!
