A shiny new site – Redesign 2016
Because new is always better.
Two years after I released my latest website (Version 6) I started working on a completely fresh redesign. Today, I am launching a new website that most precisely reflects my philosophy of simple, yet bold and dynamic design.
My old site was receiving tons of great feedback, was featured on various design award sites and since I launched it about two years ago, visitor counts increased by more than 10 times. Still, I felt like I needed to redesign to reflect my ever-evolving personal style and focus on a different customer clientele. I did not go full nuclear with the redesign this time and kept the simplicity, the previous structure and most of the content intact. This time, it’s a visual refresh, not a completely different direction.
In addition I’ve made a huge update on my portfolio itself. I removed a lot of old projects that are simply not relevant anymore (extremely outdated, dead projects or personal side projects that I did not have the time to continue working on, etc.), but also added a lot of my more recent projects.
I’ve coded my new site from scratch with a focus on full responsive and resolution independence. The new custom grid system scales well from a tiny smartphone screen up to a 27-inch display. Due to the heavy usage of SVG, code-generated graphics and
srcset images, all the illustrations and photography appears in full clarity on normal, retina and 5K displays.
After working with Kirby on various client projects before I decided to now use it for my personal site as well. It’s a stellar flat-file CMS and flexible as hell.
