My portfolio Site

Ok so here is a peek at what my portfolio site is going to look like. For now its just a basic design, with a javascript light box. I changed the design about 5 times, but I have a deadline so I have to stick with this one. Anyway here it is.

 

I kind of like it, it’s not to busy and I really like the colors, maybe in the future I can figure out how to add like sound or something when you roll over the links.

Websites/Designs that Inspire me

Okay so I realized that I am seriously terrified of color. Yeah I took Color Theory a couple of months back and I understand (sort of) the whole concept of color and color schemes. However, when it comes to me designing something I ALWAYS “play it safe” and stick to the basics. WHY? I seriously wish I knew why myself. Anyway I was recently going through some of my work I have done and I just noticed it, and then another thing I noticed is I use a lot of dark/neutral colors. But anyway I found a couple of websites that highlight the use of “minimal color designs”. I got inspired by a few things, but I know this is something that I still need to work on. Because no matter how much it works for me now my portfolio still needs to show my versatility, especially since I plan on doing more than print and web design in the future.

concrete5 CMS

Okay so Im new to the whole blogging/CMS thing, but on this post Im going to talk about this (Sort of) new  CMS called concrete5. both wordpress and concrete5 do the something, which is make it easy for a person who is not a web developer to edit and maintain their own website. Based on what I recently learned and from hands on activity, wordpress blogs are extremely simple to manage, customize, and maintain. We as people always want to find an easier way to do things though, and from what I read in a II part article about concrete5 its just as good as wordpress, and comes with a wysiwyg, in context editor. These CMS are obviously very popular at the moment, once I understand the whole “language” for writing a custom site for it I plan on using concrete5.

What inspires me

My name is Damon Boler, and I am a Graphic Design student at Specs Howard School of Media Arts.

I can find inspiration in anything, everywhere I look its a pattern, texture or something that I will eventually look back and remember when Im designing something.

As far as what motivated me to become a Graphic Designer, its my talent, and:
