Need some web design in the holidays?
Planning ahead, I'll probably be happy doing anything more useful than what most people usually do during holidays, so I figured that doing some web design for someone is a good way to help, brush up and improve my skills and perhaps even earn a couple of bucks. Perhaps someone has such a project for me?

I already designed something else for someone else, but that has not gone online (yet). I say that for 2 reasons: so you know that I have some experience and so you know that I could show you what I designed before to see how skilled I actually am/was.
I use HTML (+HTML5), CSS and maybe a tiny bit of Javascript, but that would really just be for some tricks. Javascript is by no means something I'm trained at.

For the ones who don't know what that means, it means that I can give you as many pages and as much text as you want, links, navigation through many pages, pictures, external video's (posted on youtube for example), music (never tried that actually but I think so) etc. as well as design it in any way you want with colours, fonts, letter sizes, boxes, background pictures, also making it compatible for smaller(/bigger) devices, making things compatible for different browsers etc.
So far, that's (arguably almost) only static stuff. Pop-ups, special effects and such are on the edge of what I know and don't know right now.
Way beyond that edge is stuff that involves gathering data and such. I could decide to learn that, but I don't have those skills right now. I have the open mind to work around many issues using static features though.
I am willing to learn some other things depending on other factors such as the cause and/or money. Which brings me to another relevant bit...

I like money, but there are things I would probably do for free. I don't commit for free though, so while I would probably work on it and perhaps finish it, I reserve the right to stop at any moment if I find a better way to spend my holiday. I might find myself more eager to continue writing my book, just to name something. Deadlines and such are still good to know, but I won't promise making any of them if I get nothing in return. I might end up considering it a serious commitment nonetheless, but I will try hard not to say so if I do. I just don't want to risk ending up waving unexpected cool events or such goodbye because I'm too busy doing something voluntarily I.committed to.

Nominal fee and I'll treat it like a serious project. Normal fee and you'll have a hard time stopping me from sinking too many hours into it and going for perfection. You don't have to pay for overtime though, unless you want to :)

Like I said though, I'll do some things for free, so even if you don't want to pay me, suggestions/proposals are good.

Can you just make illustrator or flattened photoshop page mockups for those who know how to program it themselves?

Do you have a portfolio?
steephie22 (182 D (S))

@Mapu: as English is not my first language I might misunderstand, but page mockups are fine, I just don't get why I would use photoshop (if that's what you're saying) rather than writing the code...? Do you mean making the page with photoshop and then just using the picture as page or something?

@SYnapse: never did it before, but I suppose I could do that. I must say it has little appeal for me though.

@bo_sox48: since all my paintings tend to end up in the bin somehow, I don't think I'll do that :)

@abgemacht: like I said in OP, I designed something before and could show it if you're interested, but I'm not uploading it to a site yet, quite simply because I'm very busy until next wednesday. I'm just looking/advertising in advance when I can't do anything for school or something, so when I can use a pc I'm doing school stuff, and uploading from mobile would be troublesome...
You want to see it though?
abgemacht (1076 D (G))
18 Jun 14 UTC
I'd be curious to see it, but I don't need any websites designed.
steephie22 (182 D (S))
18 Jun 14 UTC
PM me your email and I'll send you a zip when I feel like it. The pictures used were urls from google though (which was fine for the purpose), so it's possible that the background and/or 'products' are not there anymore. Will check that too. I could easily pick different pictures though.

Yeah OK, let me explain.

A portfolio is something you have already prepared to show people who are actually capable. When I asked for a portfolio, I meant send me a link to a site that you own that hosts snippets of your projects. You aren't going to get serious work with this half assed BS.

Above meant as constructive criticism, of course.

@jmo: PM your email and I'll do it when I feel like it :)

@abgemacht: I know that. Right now this is all I got though and I see no reason not to ask wether someone has such a project.

Maybe I'll design my own website to show as portfolio, but unless I find a good use I don't feel like paying for hosting...

Steephie I need some web design, when can you start?
steephie22 (182 D (S))
21 Jun 14 UTC
Last day of my incoming testweek is the 2nd of July (that's a wednesday) and I could really start after that. A few days more until I'm practically free (don't know how much in all honesty), so then I can pour in much more time.
I might even decide to start doing something before or during the testweek though, depending on many factors, but I can't promise that.

What did you have in mind?
Feel free to send a PM. I'll also send you a PM with my email adress in it so you can mail as well if that's what you prefer.

steephie22 (182 D (S))
21 Jun 14 UTC
I don't think I understand what exactly you mean, but my best guess is that I'm pure techie.
Please do explain what you mean with "good around 'User Experience'" though.

Did I mention English isn't my first language yet? :)

I'm having trouble seeing how that isn't pretty much the very core of designing websites, hence my confusion before, so I think I'm good at that.
NigeeBaby (100 D (G))
22 Jun 14 UTC
Steephie I think it depends on the audience, I would expect a very different user experience if I was going on a technical or scientific website compared to say a website for selling cars or a childs play website, different strokes for different folks.
steephie22 (182 D (S))
22 Jun 14 UTC
Yeah, I didn't read your email yet when I posted that, but yes, I still think it's a core part of web design, and I still think I'm decent at it, if I spend enough time on it.

Anyway, I already said what else I wanted to say via email.

So a girl isn't sure about 'breaking up' with a guy and I help her figure it out..
I think I've done it pretty much by the book, but I can't ignore the fact that there's quite a bias: I really like her, and I don't like him. So breaking up happens to be in my favour.
What I wonder is: does this make it wrong? At least consciously, the only thing I care about is helping her do the right thing, and there's definitely something 'cold' between them that wouldn't be there if they love eachother.. I'm pretty sure it would end at some point anyway..

Very minor bug
Very minor issue that probably doesn't affect many people. If you sign in to a banned account (I created an account in error near the beginning, forgetting that I already had one), there's no 'log out' button. I needed to clear the cookies in order to sign in with my real one. Not a big issue but figured it was worth mentioning.
