RIP old Userkind.com! It's bittersweet because I spent a lot of time building the old userkind site from the ground up. It served me well for 5 years, but it's starting to get dated and it doesn't do a good enough job at showcasing my work.
In the UX world, people want to see the wireframes and the story behind the project. Wireframes are ugly, but they're the foundation of a great user experience, and I want people to see the process and thinking that goes into a project.
I decided to use squarespace for my new site. That seems ludicrous seeing that I'm such a WordPress guy, but after multiple recommendations from smart people I know, and multiple free meals from the squarespace truck at SXSW, I decided to give it a closer look.
Man was I blown away! Talk about an elegant user experience. Squarespace quickly won my heart and the quality of their themes was exactly what I was looking for. It lets me focus on showcasing my work and not spend a bunch of hours building a site/theme from the ground up. I just dont have time for that, and I'd rather spend my time building great things for my clients.
I'll be adding more projects to my portfolio, but for starters, here's a deeper look into some recent projects I've completed:
