I've slowly been working of starting a redesign and I think it's going to be a great push to work on it.

Wow, this is awesome. I'm not really a designer (junior front-end dev with some minor UI/UX responsibilities) but would love to join. Not a redesign though, just going to start working on my long-overdue personal web (it will be a simple blog for now). Looking forward to seeing other websites for inspiration as well!

Woo! I’m pretty excited about this. It just so happened that I’m working on my personal site at the same time.

I've been wanting to design a personal website/portfolio for a while now, seems like a good opportunity. I'm interested.

I'll follow along and see what/if I can add anything, maybe learn a thing or two along the way.

I'd like to join too. 😁 I like how the weeks are broken down...clear and simple! I've pushing back working on my website for so long now. 😅I am excited to work on this with others.

P.S. I was front-end developer for two years. I used jQuery, Bootstrap, and SASS, so if you have technical questions, I'd be glad to share tips.

To begin with, yes! Then we can break off into smaller groups if that feels more comfortable

it's an upgrade from what it used to be but some of the feedback I got was that it feels too templatey and corporate, to which I completely agree. I love the header/hero part but want to adjust the content below to more personable
