Gotta say…I prefer the WordPress version…but that’s a personal preference.
TBH…I don’t think people are looking for static page designers much these days. It’s all very well having HTML5 and CSS3 skills but I think a background in CMS would be preferable to people looking to hire you.
They will want expect you to have HTML5/CSS3 skills at a minimum so you have to have something else to offer.
I can buy a spiffy looking template for $20 and have someone adapt it for a lot less than it costs to have someone design it from scratch. Being able to adapt a look and scale it into a CMS has a lot more value…at least IMO.
I understand where you are coming from in regards to the static site / CMS point, however I am easing away from freelance work now as I just don’t have the time to do it at the moment.
I work full time as a web designer and this would be more to showcase what I have done in the past to possible future employers. I do have a WordPress site in my portfolio there at the moment, and I have a few more to add which are also WordPress based.
I may just rethink the layout of the WordPress site slightly, but still unsure.
@ChristopherBurton – I can honestly say I have never seen that logo before in my life. A lot of development time went into my logo (believe it or not), and I am surprised they are so familiar by sheer coincidence.
