Personal Portfolio Website

This was my own portfolio website I created just before starting my final year at university.  I wanted the website to reflect my own personality, which is why I decided upon a hand-drawn design, I am very artistic and creative and I feel this represented me very well.  The backdrop was to mimic a natural fabric, again reinforcing the organic feeling of the website.

On  seeing the site for the first time, one of my friends commented how it didn’t seem like a website, but like something away from a computer.  That made my day because that was exactly what I wanted to achieve.  I built the site in php and created a content management system for myself to add new projects easily to it.  The site also features a twitter feed from my twitter account.
