About the site
This website is my online home. It is not perfect and is constantly evolving as myself. It is a bit more inclined to the personal side than the professional one. Like a digital playground where I can experiment with new technologies, share and collect some of my ideas and interests.
There’s an old ongoing joke about designers struggling with creating or updating their portfolios. And it’s true. It’s hard to be your own client. Since I wasn’t been entirely happy with any of the many design variations I was working on. I went ahead and took the MVP route.
Having a good enough base to keep building on top of it. I know I will never be fully satisfied so I’ll eventually build a site changelog to document the many upcoming improvements to this version.
Talking about versions, this is my 4th one. It has a strong focus on typography and white space, like a blank foundation to build upon.
You’re free to view the past and somewhat embarrassing versions.
This website is currently built using Hugo, a static site generator. With my custom-made theme (V4) .
I fine-tune design details on the site’s pattern library that I built using Fractal.
I’m all about what The IndieWeb stands for, and I’m still far from completely IndieWebify my site but I’m working on it.
While I did some tests and was able to publish using Micropub clients too. I choose to not use them because of the bilingual nature of my site. I try to have most of my posts in both languages and I was able to create a workflow that works for me using a series of shortcuts. I’m sure it can be done with code but currently, that’s beyond the knowledge of this designer.
I’m using Umami, a simple and self-hosted web privacy-focused analytics solution.
