Concept and Design

Color Palette
I chose the primary color theme as a main foundation and continuiing theme with few other colors appearing due to background and images.

Typography
I chose a recurring theme of Berlin Sans FB in bold and regular, and Myriad Pro.

Screen Resolution
Width: 960 px

Design Concept
I envisioned a portfolio design that is geometric in look and feel and has mostly primary colors to give a basic and clean look and feel which is at the same time, bright and attractive. This is why I have square blocks for images in form of grids. I used the colors to color block navigation items and borders. Given the clean and bold look an dfeel of the site, I chose a font like Berlin Sans FB because it is modern and clean and works well for a sans serif font. I used Myriad Pro very sparingly for a slight refreshment in font look.
