This isn't a real quote, but I'm reasonably sure that if I left my mom alone with my website files, something like this would show up mysteriously soon after. Mostly, I just try to make designs that work well with accessibility devices, and structure the content so it's interesting to interact with.
Sometimes, that does mean taking a less-is-more approach, like avoiding the temptation to use "marquee" liberally, or have the page suddenly start playing Neil Cicierega. We're all friends here, and friends only do those sort of things when they give you a heads-up first.
If you're curious about the work I've done since starting classes at UML, take a look at the designs below. They've allowed me to experiment with logo design, color schemes, site structure. I'm currently studying python and looking forward to what this will unlock for me.
