I am happy to announce the launch of my new website www.jaymesloandesign.com. This is my online personal portfolio showing off my latest design projects in web, print, illustration and wedding stationery. It also connects to my Etsy page for easy stationery shopping, and offers a freebies section for free downloads of some of my original designs.
The whole process took about 6 weeks from starting the designs, to coding, to testing and making it work properly with major browsers like Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer. (IE7 was a special treat to deal with that I very much enjoyed.) And although six weeks felt like an eternity to me, it really wasn’t since I created the design, learned html and css (thank you to those of you who I’m sure I asked my share of dumb questions to!), coded and debugged everything on my own. The idea of coding my own website was extremely daunting for me and it has been in my queue for a long time, but I am so glad that I finally did it. It’s not perfect, there are still some things that need to be addressed and I’m sure it doesn’t live up to pro developer standards by any means, but having an aesthetically pleasing and functional website that I built from scratch is such a rewarding feeling and I plan to keep making it better as time goes on. I hope you all love it as much as I do.
