The Northern Lights

I have always wanted to view the Northern Lights, unfortunately it’s very rare for them to be visible from my location in Ireland as I am too far south, but some day I plan on visiting northern Norway to catch a glimse of this amazing spectacle. This video shows the northern lights in action and shows how magnificent this can be!.

Barrymccaffrey.com Portfolio Website & blog

I have been creating barrymccaffrey.com over the past while to showcase all the projects that I have worked on during my 4 years at the Institute of Technology in Blanchardstown studying Creative Digital Media, as well as projects I have completed while working with Safefood 360.

I really like modern, clean design and wanted to create a website & blog that would reflect my interest in design. I created the website from scratch using html5 and css3 without using front-end framework development platforms such as Bootstrap as I wanted to learn the web design process from scratch. Once I was happy with my wireframes, I developed mockup designs using Adobe Illustrator and then moved on to developing the website using Adobe Dreamweaver.

Once the the main sections of the website where developed, I then wanted to create my blog page with the same look and feel as the website. I created a child-theme which would provide a seamless transition between the website and blog.
