Portfolio Website: Sabotagedesign.net is Up!

sabotagedesign.net

I recently created a wordpress website for my portfolio. This site primarily showcases my graphic design work for potential employers to view. Basically, I created a child theme from the parent theme Swiss Design. These themes are all clean, easy to use, and customizable. I would certainly recommend them to someone looking to create a portfolio site. The one I chose was also free (something I can’t really afford to pay for at the moment). I mainly just edited the CSS and HTML files since I don’t know much about PHP. I didn’t want to break the format from my parent theme, since all I was looking to do was to change the background, add a drop shadow, and create a customized header for my logo (pretty basic web design stuff). That’s why I really liked the Swiss Design theme since I could easily visualize how my site would look.
I may be making some changes to the header, I don’t entirely like how the logo sits in the box, I feel like there is some awkward negative space that needs to be dealt with, but the most important thing for me was to get the sight up, working, and presentable. I will probably fiddle with details later. The typeface I used for the logo I found on FontSquirrel. I use this sight to find many free fonts (again poor). Gladifilthefte was the typeface, I added embellishments to it as well as creating a ligature between the two ‘G’s. Overall, I hope this site will be easy to manage and get me some work in the future!
