Well, it seems I’ve been named student of the month in my Web Design II class. First of all, I’d like to thank my parents, my sister, and my pets. Without them none of this would have been possible. I’d also like to thank Google, for absolutely no reason, and would love to give a shoutout to WebFuzion Media, my employer. Okay, that was all a joke, but seriously, I’m honored to be Student of the Month. Now that my pseudo-VMA speech is over, let’s move on to the business at hand. Ms. 4 generously took the time to link to my blog, so it looks like I’ll have to start posting again. Truthfully, I’ve had this planned for quite a while, but lack of inspiration and a massive work schedule has had me tied down.
First off, I have a ton of posts lined up for the future. Most of them deal with web design, but a few are going to be personal, just to keep my sanity level in check, for a lack of better words. So far I have about three articles in the works. The first, focusing on client communications, will teach you everything you need to know about handling your clients, as a designer, in the most professional and efficient way possible. The second is a medium length tutorial covering typeface implementation in real world situations. Whether you’re looking for the perfect font to kick off your new advertisement poster, or something elegant for a web page, it’ll be covered. Finally, I’ll be posting about the role offsite web applications play in the blogosphere.
So, has your fancy been tickled yet? As if that’s not enough, I want to try and get some interviews with a few designers. On my list right now: John Oxton, Bryan Veloso, and Stu Nichols. If any of you stumble across this post, and don’t already have an email from me, feel free to leave a comment. I may also be migrating to WordPress or the Movable Type blogging system some time soon, with a custom design following. If any students from the WD2 course enjoy any of my posts, you might want to check out my web design community website, Abstracted.View. The link can be found to the right. Oh, and before I forget, I’ll probably be podcasting a little bit in the future, so if you see any strange MP3 files floating around, don’t be afraid to listen.
