I currently hold a BCIT Associate Certificate in Web Technologies but I am considering doing further education in the future (since I don’t know much about mobile design, the latest technology or much about programming languages). Right now, I am more of a web designer that can code….small sites only. (I can also do light design modifications to WordPress themes).
My digital skills currently include:
Coding (with help from Google’s searching skills…because I’m not coding a lot right now.)
I’ve been researching CSS3 and HTML5 and it’s pretty cool! I’m starting to incorporate some of it into my websites, when appropriate.
- Adobe Photoshop (some)
- Adobe Dreamweaver or most code editors for that matter (writing CSS and HTML mostly)
- Very basic Adobe Flash (slideshows etc)
- Consumer Video Editors (Move Maker, VideoStudio…) I’m currently playing with Adobe Premiere and After Effects but I can probably get around most non-linear video editors, at least for basic edits
I would like to learn more media/multimedia software in the future (like stop being so afraid of vector graphics…)…but that’s about it for now…
Obviously, I also know how to use a computer and nearly all (unless it’s really weird and/or in a different language) word processing software and such as well. I am also familiar with administering WordPress (installation, basic configuration, content management, and CSS-based design only).
Foundation Equestrian (redesigned in 2012)
Design and Maintenance (webmaster)
WordPress, template customization (child theme), plug-in implementation (that I didn’t make), content input, content organization, migration from a hand-coded site that I also made.
Previous Foundation Equestrian site (2009-2011 archived) – Design, Development and Maintenance (webmaster). Hand coded HTML and CSS, prettyPhoto, basic SEO. It had a flash header but that was changed to a static image in 2010.
My Personal Sites
I tend to make sites for myself because I am the best client for me. Ha! It seems to be some sort of hobby…
Pieces of Dreams (Tumblr)
Tumblr based, modified theme (Just Plain Theme), design, code, uh I mostly just reblog content…
jenniferchow.ca – My Personal Landing Page (2012)
Content, design and coding. Hand-coded personal landing page, using HTML and CSS3 techniques (for background image and element transparency). Uses FontSquirrel font kits.
Jennego.com – personal blog (2012), of course.
Third design based on the Twenty Twelve theme, running on WordPress (self hosted)
Old Personal Site (2009) – personal hand-coded site with random experiments. Also attempted to integrated Blogger with a similar themed site.
