Pokécharms 2013 Design

by Teapot

Screen Shot 2016-08-30 at 3.43.21 pm.png
Teapot From 4th September 2013 to 29th August 2016, Pokécharms looked like this. This design was the product of about a year's work, and is notable in being the first full website design I ever launched. The design was tweaked over the course of its three year run, but otherwise has been among the longest-running designs we've had.

The launch of this design also coincided with our move to a single, integrated piece of software to run the fundamentals of the site – the same software we are running today, although we've been upgrading it since. Again, the parts of the site I built on top of this software – the Trainer Card Maker and Creative Corner, were the first completed code projects I finished.

I leave this screenshot here as an archive of what the site used to look like, and as a personal reminder of how far my professional career has come. :)

    Looking back at this now, I can say I miss the art of just simply looking at the number with a red background caved in next to the Alerts tab, but I'm fine with this.
