This has been in the works for a long time. I started developing this new website design in July (6 months before I launched it), and actually finished most of the design by September. For the last three months, I’ve been filling in a tremendous amount of content for my all new portfolio page. My new portfolio page covers just about every project I’ve ever done and includes links to source materials, news stories, related blog posts, multimedia, and more for each and every entry. I’m really happy with the way it turned out – It even has an entry for the redesign of this very website.
The aspect of my new design that I’m most excited about is the header. It’s actually a functional, open source circuit that I created using Cadsoft Eagle. You can download the source files on github. In addition to having textual links to each page, the buttons and LEDs can also be used for navigation, and the liquid crystal display shows the current page title. Though I haven’t actually created this circuit board in real life (yet), it should work as shown in the header after some simple programming.
Along with this all new desktop version of my site, I also launched both iPad (see photo) and mobile versions. If you visit JeremyBlum.com from your mobile device it should load the mobile version automatically (note: not all blackberries are recognized as mobile devices due to each one having a different user agent).
I hope you enjoy the new design, and I welcome any feedback!
