An attractive and effective portfolio is one of the most important tools a freelancer should have. For this project, I was tasked with making Sydney’s portfolio more device agnostic, finish her WordPress theme to incorporate a blog and take care of the other details such as image optimization and tackling browser quirks. As this was a revamp of an almost finished website, I collaborated with Kathryn Shannon, the designer of the portfolio, to make sure that her vision of the site was achieved.
The site was already using Underscores and Advanced Custom Fields, but to improve the layout, I decided to use Susy as my grid system.This made the whole portfolio look more cohesive and definitely more mobile friendly. In addition, I used Susy’s gallery() mixin to better display her portfolio across numerous devices.
