As I write this post, I am uploading a mess of files that I’ve been working on for the past month or two that make up the first real Abramski site. I use the word real, because I don’t believe downloading a theme you like and calling it your own flies if you are any type of developer or designer. For years now, I’ve had a theme or two up here masquerading as my site while I wrote some blog posts and I’m somewhat embarrassed about it. I had no portfolio to speak of because I had no work that felt like my own that I really wanted to showcase. This site was always meant to be a priority but like many other designers and developers, I put off getting this site together for years.
It took quitting a steady job, moving back home and living on savings to get this done. It took building sites and taking on projects that I wanted to do, regardless of its profitability. In short, it took a lot of fucking time and effort to launch this site.
For the most part, everything you see in the portfolio was made by just me. I designed it to the very last pixel, I developed it frontend to backend. I obsessed over details, researched, tore down, built up, got discouraged, got inspired, but most importantly, I got it done. And here it is.
