i would like to build a simple and minimalistic portfolio website similar to squarespace ‘wells’ theme - what is the best way to do this?
the website theme i would like to match is here and very popular among photographers: http://wells-demo.squarespace.com
what is most important for me is responsiveness, compatibility to mobile devices, fixed (not scrolling) left navigation area with scrollable thumbnails gallery and a simple image slider as seen in that template.
maybe i should specify that i am not a professional web coder/designer, nor a programmer, but i can handle stacks and i have some experience with rapidweaver already. that said is the foundation stack a way to accomplish this? would it be recommendable for a non expert programmer/coder or is the learning curve too steep?
as for the image portfolio data, i would prefer to be able to keep the image files warehouse managed.
any tips would be very appreciated, thanks
