Mostly, I like to make things.

"My beautiful sweetpea daughter is amazing and also beautiful. She is really good at the internet."

- Harmonie's mom, 2021

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.

Active Designs

coursework site

UML Coursework

This is a place where I post the results of weekly coursework, as well as project info, during the semester. Most work needs to be posted to a class board, so I decided to make a live site I could link to. Any upcoming classes will also have their own section if the coursework requires it.
where to next frontpage

Where To Next?

Where To Next is a photo blog I started in Fall 2020, when I started working on my Web Design studies. It was inspired as a way to enjoy memories from before the Covid lockdown in my area, and I plan to continue to update and improve the site structure, as well as add future galleries.
Harmonie site frontpage

harmonie.is

This site, in fact! Harmonie.is stands as my home on the internet, and it has gone through a few iterations as my skill improves. I intend to maintain and build out this site over time, making a blog space for projects, as well as a place to show and share portfolio items.

Completed Designs

8bithops frontpage

8Bit Hops

8Bit Hops was a class project site, designed for a course I took in Spring 2021. It was designed to be a mockup of a business's website, to help their customers connect and engage with the business. I decided on a Brewery with an arcade/live music space, mostly further inspired by hopeful thoughts of post-Covid fun.
Javascript site frontpage

Javascript Coursework Site

This site was built as a Final Project for an Intro to Javascript course I took in Spring 2021. The goal was to display different webpage elements for which Javascript was used for both function and user interaction. I especially enjoyed making a gallery of grayscale photos that changed to vibrant color on mouseover.
Seeds of Solidarity site frontpage

Seeds of Solidarity Site

This site was put together as the main project for my Web Development class. The process for making it was specifically laid out over the course of the class, with feedback throughout. We picked from a list of real non-profits, and redesigned a website for them, based on their content. The real site for Seeds of Solidarity is here.
