Aquaraven's Portfolio Design by aquaraven Aquaraven's Portfolio Design by aquaraven
The portfolio page consists of two sections (the tabs are located in the upper right):

Showcase
Biography & Contact Information

When the portfolio page is loaded, both sections would be loaded at once, so switching between them would not require any additional load time.

About the Showcase tab:
The arrows protruding from the thumbnail strip and information strip could be clicked to HIDE each panel. The image in the center would then automatically resize to fill the space. There is a little slideshow bubble just above the large image that would allow images to auto-transition with fade effects. It could be paused at any time.

If you have writing in your gallery, then the thumbnails would show the title of the work, and the larger image area would reveal the entire piece, with a scrollbar if needed. I designed this mainly with images in mind, however.

About the Biography & Contact Info Section:
You could choose any two images to place on this page.

You could title your portfolio whatever you want. I would have put my entire last name, but I want to stay safe!
You could also choose which tab would appear first.

A big plus for this design:
The contents would be fairly resizable so that the entire portfolio could fit on most screens without the viewer ever having to scroll down in their browser.

About the image:
The image above is slightly smaller than the actual size of the design.

slight-of-eye took the photo I'm using in the Biography tab.

Thank you Sirielle for all your help!

Very sharp. Have you thought about coding it into php and putting it out under the GNU so people can attach this to their own websites?

aquaraven Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2007
I would totally code this! If only I knew how. It exists purely as a photoshop mock-up right now.

I'll ask around the web, if I find someone who could do it cleanly I'll send them your way. That would just be sweet as a website page.

Sure, totally go for it! I'm honored you want to do it. If you could just link my Portfolio deviation as reference in your deviation description, that would be great.

it should have won 1st. guess the script would have been too complex to use for each subscriber?

Thanks! I guess you're right. The design would probably work quite well in Flash.

I like the design, the difficult part would of been the scrollable section, on the first bit, css could of been used, but the scroll bar wouldnt of been coloured, I did see a example of a scrollbar on nintendo's website, a few years ago, that used javascript.

aquaraven Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2007
Thanks! Yeah, I'd have no idea how to code this thing. If I ever make a real website out of this for myself, I would probably do it in Flash.

I actually made a newer, streamlined version here if you want to check that out.

Thanks for the fave too!

I agree with the others: this is the real winner. This one has more content and fancy features, but the other one won because the judges were seduced by how 'bloggy' it was.

Thanks! I'm still trying to figure out why I didn't at least get second place. I can't really complain though - I'm quite enjoying the new subscription!

I actually made a streamlined version you can see here if you want to see the more finalized design.
