Initial Portfolio Designs

After some sketchbook work I picked the two designs I felt to be the best to develop further. Feedback would be appreciated to help me choose the best one.

Website Goals and Delivery Requirements

My goals for the portfolio are as follows:

  • XHTML 1.0 (Strict) and CSS 2.1 Valid

It is important to have a website that validates to W3C standards as this increases crossbrowser compatibility, search engine optimisation (SEO), increases the speed with which pages load and increases accessibility.

To measure this I will use the W3C validator.

  • Easy to update

My portfolio will need to be updated on a regular basis to showcase my latest work. This will be measurable by the ease with which I can add new projects I have worked on.

  • Maximum Possible Search Engine Optimisation

It is important my portfolio ranks as high as possible on search engines to ensure it is viewed by the target audience. To measure this I will type different keywords into search engines on a regular basis to check my site is as near the top as possible.

Delivery Requirements

The markup/scripting languages will be XHTML 1.0 (strict) and CSS 2.1. The domain name will be and it will be hosted by E68.
