Are there any Peckham/Nunhead/Camberwell based friendly web designers who would be prepared to hold my hand while I build a very basic website using HTML/CSS and Juicebox?
I need to re-do my website.. I did use a hosted ‘template’ site for my portfolio which was an expensive compromise; the templates were ok, and customisable to a degree, but didn’t have the finesse that I’d hoped for, and it had back end services that I was paying for, but not using.
So, I had to let it go and look into building my own, simple, portfolio site that I can host on the webspace I’m already paying for.
My wish list was/is:
- Auto full browser width for full bleed images, (not full screen, I don’t want to take over the desktop)
- Top ‘bar’ navigation, possibly with transparency
- Image gallery where I can choose the running order of the pictures
- An ‘overview’ where you can see the whole gallery as thumbnails and click to return to a folio view
- An info page with bio and contact details
- Something that will fall back to iOS devices gracefully
I seem to have found the gallery solution in Juicebox and I’m hoping I can integrate it into a very simple HTML/CSS site and have a navigation banner across the top, possible over the images with some nifty transparency and “z” axis fiddling.
Could you help? - Please, get in touch and we can discuss a suitable remuneration package!
