Portfolio Site & Blog

Since 2005 when I have a free moment, almost every year I try to create a new portfolio to display my recent works. In the last few years I've relied heavily on wordpress as a CMS. This round, my latest portfolio site (this one) is built without a backend CMS and relies on a custom static theme written by myself. homepage content page mobile view
