After months of coding, designing, and getting feedback, Wild Lotus Media’s website is finally live! It was a true struggle trying to represent my business brand, Wild Lotus Media, while representing myself as a person and designer. By being so connected to my content, I wanted my portfolio site to be perfect. This resulted in some designer’s block, which I finally overcame by getting some good inspiration around the web.

I am proud to say that I’ve designed and hand-coded 99% of the website. I started off with a design, then used Foundation to help me get started. Foundation is great for making a responsive website with additional goodies. I used HTML5, PHP, and Jquery. I hand coded the contact form, as well as the portfolio aspect, which pull images from social media sites.

If you have any comments or questions, please leave some feedback or e-mail me at WildLotus@mail.com. I hope you enjoy my site!
