Why I quit my job to design a game
I quit the tech job last year and am working on a game called Escort.
In the process of designing a game, I was inspired to design my own website, which I hope to publish on the same site as Escort soon.
For now, I’ve built an interface that makes browsing the website fun, but it’s mostly a “home page” for the game itself.
There are three main parts of the design process: I decided on a design language that I liked and had experience with to build the site (I’ve used Google’s Bootstrap, Bootstrap.js, and Bootstrap Grid in the past).
I decided on the layout I wanted the site to look like, and I built it out of the three themes I chose.
I also had a few other design decisions to make.
I picked a design font called “Web Designer”, because I like the font’s bold, vibrant colors and feel, and the way it looks.
My theme and theme template are both open source, so you can contribute your own.
Finally, I decided to make my own logo for the site, which is also available for free.
The logo is a simplified version of the logo I designed for Escort, so it looks a bit more like a game website.
Here’s how the site looks with the logo: My first steps to designing Escort took place over the course of the first few weeks of work.
First, I took some screenshots of the site’s navigation bar and layout, which should help me understand how the navigation works and is organized.
Then, I drew up a rough idea of what the site should look like when it’s full of content, which also helped me figure out the layout and layout template.
This is a mock-up of what Escort’s navigation will look like on a page.
Next, I tried to make the site look as clean as possible, so that the navigation bar would be clear and unobtrusive.
And finally, I created a prototype of the game’s interface using HTML and CSS, with the help of my friend who helps me create websites.
While I’m not a fan of the default design I’ve been working on, the website’s layout looks very functional and the logo works.
When it comes to design, I’m a bit hesitant to create something that I’m just not happy with.
But, this is one of the few things I can do in this position.
So far, I think I’m in a pretty good place.
If you want to see the first version of Escort for yourself, check out the project’s Github repository.
