Web Design Projects (tip: you can use your arrow keys to move through projects)
While I rarely accept “real world” web design projects (as they tend to be unprofitable), I do create them for motion pictures.
Drewprops.com Website Redesign
I’ve used the domain drewprops.com to host a personal blog for more than a decade, so when in 2012 I returned to doing film work and outside corporate assignments I concluded that it was time to transform the site into an online portfolio and shunt the blog to a subdomain (blog.drewprops.com).
I began by studying the websites of designers that I’ve long admired and compiled a list of elements I found appealing. I also wanted to make the site easy to update so I created my own database-driven content management system, which took awhile. More than anything the site needed to have a friendly, simple interface with lots of opportunity for exploration, acting as a portal for my social media sites.
I’m not looking for work as a professional web developer because this stuff is time consuming, especially when you’re also the client. If this web redesign had been for anyone else I might have respectfully submitted my resignation!
