This site, which is the latest version of AlexMarc.us, is the result of several months of pen-and-paper design planning and drafting. The design went through a number of iterations: some very intricate and technically challenging, others more minimal and functional. Eventually I settled on a design that is both visually interesting and functional, keeping with the previous versions‘s focus on content.
The code is based on a HTML5 WordPress boilerplate template called Underscores, which I customized to fit my needs. AlexMarc.us 3.0 utilizes jQuery and Backbone JS libraries, as well as Google fonts and analytics. Once I had completed the desktop version to my specifications, I customized the mobile experience using CSS media queries to fit any device.
