Dashboard CV for iPad screen

After reading the brief for this assignment I knew I wanted to focus on the presentation of my different software skills and so this was the focus of my sketching stage.

In my sketches I focused on showing not only my ability to use use certain applications but also the relationships and crossovers between these applications.

iPad – 1iPad – 2iPad – 3In my wireframes I focused on laying out everything a potential employer might want to see. I used a scrollable design that I feel allows the user to focus on one piece of content at once. I also tried a menu design integrated into the top bar that drops down using an arrow. I saw this as a good opportunity to try the adobe Xd beta software as it has recently been released on windows.

I wasn’t entirely happy with the software skills section of the wireframe so I expanded on one of my ideas that had them displayed separately as well as styled separately to fit their theme. The resulting paper design will be used in place in my final design.

Final Designs:

 

The colour pallet I used was inspired by another portfolio site I found which simply used pastel colours similar to the red and yellow i’ve used here. The icons used in the hobbies and interests section are from flaticon.com.
When placing the icons I tried experimenting by having them not centred or slightly off the yellow backgrounds. I think if they are all like this the effect works well.

Personal Manifesto Development

Version 1 of my manifesto was just and idea I had to place the text a certain way on an A5 size white rectangle.
personal manifesto 2
Version 2 continues my idea for text on A5 rectangle but with a modified manifesto and a stark contrast in the font used. I also experimented with leading for the different section of it.
