Why did I redo my portfolio

I created my first portfolio in 2016, second in 2017. Compare to the first one, the second (profungi.github.io) used a creative template with a bunch of nice photo filters. It has a better look and feel but 2 fetal problems:

  1. Belt shape presentation is not the best choice for portfolio.
    If people lose interest at the beginning, they won’t have patience to see the following artwork; as I am keep working on projects, the site will be like Snake, which is unfriendly for searching.
  2. Design style inconsistency.
    I moved the site and changed the interface, but I kept the project detail page on the old site. The two sites have completely different design style, which will confuse visitors.

As I am planning to add my projects, switching to a new platform to start over was the best choice.

Site update memo

Rebuild a site again?
