Creating My Personal Website

Finally... My Website

Hi, my name is Kofi - and I have been procrastinating building my personal website for ages. I have wanted to write stuff for a while as well, my thoughts, my learnings, my portfolio... just a catalougue of things I find cool.

As a weekend project I finally decided to just get it done! So here it is.

My "Stack"

Some cool tools I used in the process of creating the site - you'll wanna check these out:

  • Calendly (for bookings)
  • Adobe Xd (I use this for so much more than experience design nowadays)
  • Webflow
  • Screenspace
  • Envato Elements
  • Storychief
  • Unsplash
  • Netflix (Everybody needs a break sometimes)
  • Photoshop

The Concept

Kofi Okyere Brand Concept

Definition: A surface decoration made by inlaying small pieces of variously colored material to form pictures or patterns

Full disclosure... it didn't start this way but here's my concept for the brand - A mosaic (But without the stones)! Thing is, I owe my family members a website each, so the concept must be scalable and as far as possible I should be able to re-use elements accross the board.

So the sun is the main element and the remainder of the mosaic can be personalised to include each individuals favourite things. I actually snuck a husky into mine.

What's Left

Well now I can just get to writing! #NoExcuses - Storychief integrates nicely with Webflow, Wordpress and all my social media so posting isn't an excuse either.

Version 2.0 of the site will add:

  • Animations - motion is important
  • A portfolio
  • Case studies
  • Quotable quotes

Really looking forward to the next few weeks :)
