So the goal with this website as I needed a portfolio bad...I kept applying for all of these jobs but all the way at the bottom it was asking for a personal site and I didn't have one. So I figured two ways to tackle that problem would be 1. To actually build a portfolio and 2. To literally build it from scratch.
So I drew up the designs in a notepad, took it to sketch, created all of the layout and the illustrations and then work with good ol' html, css, and react to create what you see in front of you. Of course, the inspiration came from some amazing websites I've seen across the web. Please let me know what you think and welcome: https://www.lainkwelldesignco.com
