Creating the wireframe for hedviglien.com
The webpage will have a navigation bar, a bottom icon list and top logo staying fixed throughout the site. The design concept will stay roughly the same on all pages with images and information mainly placed at the right side of the page and scrollable. The headders will be placed on the left.
In the portfolio section, the word portfolio will stay fixed and the category will change for each new project. So will the info and images. These will be scrollable.
The background image will change for each main page.
