Finishing the Type Assignment

Over the past week I was finishing up the Type assignment. I was mostly finishing up the last design details. I had a few issues and concerns.

Issues:
I struggled on putting an image behind a pull quote and getting the opacity to match the article’s background.

Concerns:
That my design does not work well with my theme.
That my design is to user friendly or functional.

Overall I really liked tying in a theme into the design of the webpage. That was something that felt missing in the Portfolio home page. With a lack of a theme it felt hard to figure out how to make it look. With the Type page, I was able to give it a specific look.

As far as the opacity issue I had, I will continue working on that to see how I may be able to fix that in the future. This time I excluded the extra background image, but I hope next time to be able to incorporate it.

My Type page can be found here.


 

Some housekeeping:
I talked to ReclaimHosting and got my Portfolio to be connected to my URL. It can now be found here. So I no longer have a mirroring blog just a portfolio site (yay for organization!).
The Portfolio is also accessible through this blog, under “Clio II” in the Menu.
