I always need a portfolio.
My job title has been a work in progress forever. I've tried
learning experience designer,
creative technologist and
curriculum designer, but I'm also simply a
product designer, or
educational product designer that ends up
coding in various languages and often handling
audio, photo, and video editing and production,
graphic design and even
web development from
spreadsheet, database, and API wrangling to wordpress and eshop
The point is, I need a portfolio.
And yet, every time I come to a crossroads in my project-driven career, I realize I don't have a presentable portfolio.
Search for Simplicisity
Tired after years of self-hosted Wordpresses and slick, but limited SAAS offerings, I finally had a taste
markdown-driven Jekyll over Github pages ❤️, and I knew I found the backbone for my next portfolio, this one.
It come with a Twist:
Jekyll is amazing, but it's a bit clunky and slow and blog-heavy. For some reason I can't even recall, I got a feeling the cool kids are using Hugo.
What self-respected fan of tangents and last-minute pivots would resist?
