This is merely my personal site where I can put up some of my work and play for others to see. There are probably some big design flaws here. I had trouble with the design from the start and spent several months finding a look that I liked and that wouldn't be too much work to create (that is the key issue! I'm not very advanced with CSS and it was hard to get things to work right as is, I was being a perfectionist with it all).
My original idea was for a "natural" feel with bamboo and rocks and whatnot with the content kind of freely floating in the air or something, but I'm not a good enough artist to create those from scratch. Next, I though of an sleek industrial Shinkansen look, featuring various train and station elements. Blues and whites and greys and such, what I like.
But when that proved to be too much I went with this. I was actually inspired by the county bus system (with those displays they have on the fronts of buses). I added a bit of a typical Aqua/Gloss/iLife look and wa-la.
I didn't think about how obvious the navigation might be to others so I added some text help. It's at least a bit of an upgrade from my last design. I'll probably change it again next year. It was mostly a learning project for me, though I am satisfied with it.
