IDEA 5? Not sure...
1.) From the main page, user scrolls through work, clicks on a specific piece, larger image pops up of work, with related views/images.
Can return to main page by clicking 'back' (or area outside the popped-up images?
2.) From the main page, the user can narrow/expand options by clicking on the category options, which will grey out or illuminate images to choose from. User can click on another image. New image collage opens up like in scenario 1, and user can scroll down to see more info/more imagery. User can leave a comment if they feel so inclined.
3.) From main page, user can read about me blurb, and if they want to read more, they can click 'read more!' which will bring them to a new about me section, more extensive.
4.) From main page, they can access a downloadable copy of my resume.
5.) From main page, they can access a list of links for my designer friends, influential sites, and my other webpages, such as blog, twitter, flickr.
6.) From main page, user can read recent news about me as a designer, which is able to be read right on main page. They can leave a comment about the news.
7.) From the main page, or the about me page, they can click on 'contact me', and an email population box will appear for them to fill out.
