Goals

  • Build a personal website as an archive for my creative output.
  • Experiment with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript using design patterns that I have not implemented before.
  • Self-built: design and implement as much as possible by myself.
  • Showcase my work for others.
  • Improve at building advanced static sites with Jekyll.

Principles

  • Future-friendly
  • Focused on content
  • Economical, high performance design
  • Progressively enhanced
  • Flexible in layout and form
  • Respectful of users and their devices
  • Usable and accessible
  • Empathetic in content, design and tone
