During my first couple of semesters at BCTC, I was not only tasked with learning InDesign, Maya, Unity, and a plethora of other programs, I also had to learn and utilize HTML, HTML 5, and CSS for create basic-responsive websites as part of my Graphic Designs track. After turning them in, I went back to some of them to redesign them and to make them more personable for those who were to visit them!
One of the next websites I was to create in college (and eventually edit and host for my own uses) was a multi-paged site about something we cared about. The main reason I had even rejoined college in the first place was to obtain the knowledge and experience to create a gaming series I have had in pre-production for almost 20 years – a long time to wait for something – my “Legends of Saviors” series (which is a working title). I took what I had learned from creating the Ron Royse Imports site and expounded upon it, adding in various things that I hadn’t implemented before; like “index calling” for internal terms most people probably wouldn’t recognize firsthand, multiple pictures on individual pages, and a few others small details in the code. I don’t really update nor use that site anymore (or at least, for the current moment) considering I now use this living portfolio way more often.
