Process

In developing her portfolio , I opted for a visual language that mirrors her distinctive artistic style. The interface incorporates a minimal, fun, and unique aesthetic, utilizing her primary color palette as a nod to her art style. It structures its contents in an unconventional and intriguing navigation, while remaining easy to use. The goal was to create a visually impressive yet minimalistic portfolio. Utilizing Next.js and Decap CMS, I empowered Charlotte to autonomously update the content, ensuring seamless and independent control.

Personal Role

As a freelancer, I led the design and programming of the portfolio from start to finish. Maintaining continuous communication with Charlotte, I ensured alignment with her vision, needs, and stylistic preferences. The collaborative process was smooth and friendly, resulting in a project that successfully embodies her artistic expression.
