Welcome to Christopher Young’s portfolio website

Christopher Young | Interface Design | Portfolio Website Final Draft


Create a list of all users that may visit your site (not from the WWW but those you’d invite). Users that will visit my site would be clients that want to view what I have created for other clients in the field. What will each of those users want to see in order to enjoy their visit to your site? Users will enjoy the cleanness of the website throughout the site. Name your intended audience (the person(s) you need to persuade.) My intended audience would be future employees, and clients I am currently working with. Describe what you need to inform and persuade them of: Promote my: Artwork from school or personal artwork I have created over the years. Goals of the site are: Goals from the website are to show my portfolio to clients in the field. Other goals of the site are to show what I can do. My ultimate message/ philosophy (about who you are): Ultimate message is to show who I am as a person and to show what I can create not only on paper but also from my mind. What is the story you are telling? The story I am telling is the process my mind works in creating the work that I am able to create for myself and for clients. What projects which do not exist yet will you want to show? Projects I will show on the website will be examples of what I have created in school, clients, as well as creations I have created over the last few years.

Concept Statement: “A designer is a planner with an aesthetic sense.” Welcome to the website, upon the first glance at looking at the website you should feel that you are on a expedition to find something. After viewing the layout and content on the page you should feel that you are looking at a graphic designers website. I want to prepare the clients what their project can look like by looking at other creations. The biggest asset of the website will be the typography, and having photos to show what creations have been designed. The navigation of the website will be simple and easy to use. Main navigation being buttons on the top of the page. Throughout the website I don’t want clienteles to feel lost or to have any problems moving from one page to another.

About Me

Who am I? My name is Christopher Young, I am currently attending the Art Institute of Seattle studying Graphic Design. Why did I decide to become a graphic designer? The reason why I decided that I wanted to be a graphic designer is when I was growing up I loved to doodle on my papers. Being creative allows a me to express how I feel and show my emotions. I am not a person who is good with words but I am good at using my creativity to show an image or a feeling or an emotion. I want to be able to help create tomorrow. What do I do in my free time? I love hanging out with the family, or friends. I enjoy drawing, seeing what I can come up with in my mind and drawing out what I see in my mind. Drawing is my number one way to keep my mind off things and is my number one pass time. I enjoy skiing with the family when we are able to meet up. When it’s nice out I love being outdoors working on cars or just hanging out.
