Housekeeping and design progress

December 5, 2021

Spending most of my time in Figma these days, designing the case study experience. It'll be another section of the site powered by a Webflow CMS, so things should take shape quickly once the design's ready. Besides that, here're the small updates:

  • Added page load animation to help hide a pesky flash of unstyled type.
  • Open sourced the styleguide which is fairly barebones for the moment, but will be ramped-up (and overhauled?) soon.
  • CSS grid improvements and fixes to the Acadia/New England Brew section.

Is this too meta?

Here it is folks, the Changelog post about the Changelog.

  • Added V1 of the Changelog with 3 initial posts. This feature's built using CMS Collections, making updates easy and repeatable. Styling is also handled on a more global level.
  • Updated Promo Bar to feature text link to the Changelog. Link is hidden when Changelog is the current page.

Tweeted to let folks know I'm building out in the open. Hearing back gave me motivation plus some accountability partners—the fabled win-win.

  • Added first version of the Promo Bar with coming soon messaging.
  • Added Google Analytics.

Hello World 👋

Jotting down updates and taking a more iterative approach felt like a cool way to break up this project into manageable chunks, be more transparent, and embrace a more constant evolution. Here's what went down first:

  • Used Figma to HTML to make a copy of my existing portfolio in Figma. Kept its general spirit intact, gave it a spruce-up, and added current work.
  • Built MVP homepage on Webflow using various CSS grid sections.
