Web Design is something I’d never given much thought to before this semester. I have grown up with the conveniences of the Internet and have happily clicked around the World Wide Web without much thought about how it all came to be.

Now, after having gone “live” with my personal website, I can say I seriously appreciate each page on the internet I visit each day.

Every button, body of text, video, link and photo that you see on Paigeserzen.com, I have coded with HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheet). These web design languages are made up of a plethora of carets (<>), brackets ({}) and basically every other keyboard symbol out there. Everything had to be done very meticulously during the coding process in order for my website to turn out the way I wanted it to.

I faced many problems throughout the semester in attempts of making it look the precise way I envisioned it to be. But, I was always able to figure it out through many google searches and help from our very insightful professor and fearless style and design leader, Robert French.

Overall, designing my online personal digital resume & portfolio has been an extremely frustrating, exciting and rewarding process. I’ve had the opportunity to model, create new works, and reflect on my 21 years spent on earth. Having examples of my work, information about my college experiences and life all in one place is something I never thought would happen! But alas, it has!

Please, take a look at PaigeSerzen.com, and let me know what you think!

  1. Paige! First, thank you for your kind sentiments.
    Now, I *love* that you have written about the experience. Fantastic! You Rock!
    I wish all of the students would follow your lead and share their experiences. Most importantly, to me at least, is reflecting upon the process and how it develops that appreciation for what goes into creating a website.
    I’m gonna’ be bragging about you … again!
    I hope you have a wonderful holiday and get some rest. You’re on your way! No question in my mind that you have very bright future. Yay, Paige!
