Yet another portfolio - 12th attempt

Hello everyone,

I love working on my portfolio, I know it sounds narcissistic, but the truth is that it is the subject I know the best, and it is always a bit of introspection and self-knowledge when I do this exercise, kind of like a therapy.

Redoing my portfolio has always been a way to put one foot into a new web technology. My first portfolio was 10 years ago, using only HTML and CSS. Needless to say it looked pretty basic.
Then I remember doing a second version with JQuery, and anoter one with a custom design, one using PHP, etc... Every iteration was a learning.

Last year, I worked on a new version of my portfolio after few weeks of designing it through Figma, I started coding while having in mind that this would be a long-term one. I wanted to get familiar with the concept of animation and minimalism. I wanted that website to be unique and soft, while telling my story.

To anyone who wants to learn something new in web development or design in general, I highly recommend to do a portfolio.

Hope you will enjoy my twentieth take on it: https://thomasmorice.com

I used few effect on scroll, so I'm not sure which one you are talking about specifically, but most of the effects are done using gsap library: greensock.com/gsap/. It takes quite some time to get familiar with it, but you can do a lot of thing, svg manipulation for instance, but also smooth image transition on scroll, really awesome tool.
