Anything in bold I for sure want to use in some way
Would be a cool set up for the portfolio page, I like how when hovering over the image it gives the title and the option to view it larger. Instead of the title of the piece put the class and assignment name and can make some pdfs with that piece and if you have any process sketches or work.
I like how light this site is. Also could be another idea of how to organize pieces; could do small images of projects and then when clicked you see it full size along with any sketches or early works on it with a description which could be the name of the class and assignment with brief description of project
I like this contact page; specifically how he has the email stuff to the left and then his email,phone and social media off to the side.
I like the portfolio part, it’s like a combination of the first two sites I liked.
I like how he photographed the physical piece; will do that for the cd cover
Homepage inspiration. Have a piece you like as the background but make it lighter and put the text and options on top in a darker color. Put your name and graphic designer under it with your design statement and then buttons like here for each page (which will also be in your header)
Make your “logo” like this (just type) since you don’t have an actual one yet
Use the blurred background image on your homepage image using the notes in number 6
I like how the about page is set up with the resume right below a description
I like the use of the textured background, can use something like it for all page backgrounds except the home page
