I have a confession to make. I’m not actually a pastry chef. But I did work in a professional kitchen once upon a time, and baking is one of my favorite hobbies. I just love the awesome sights, sounds, and smells of a kitchen full of baking goods. The brilliant red of cherry pie filling,…Details
Dropped out of university in November 2019, here's how my job hunt went recently. Sept 2020 – Jan 2021 (Toronto)

So I’m very new to web development or design of any kind and just wanting to create a website for a friends small business.
Content is copied in places and not all quite filled in yet, I’m still working on things but I’d love a bit of feedback on the overall design choices I’ve made and where I could improve things.
It’s just very minimal and simple, but I wanna make the best I can of it and learn how to improve!
I’m currently mainly focusing on the desktop version but I do understand the basics of media queries and have some of that implemented already, but it will be buggy at the moment in mobile.
