So here it is – this is the first blog post on my updated website. Having been online for well over a month it has been a fairly slow and quiet transformation – this is mainly because it has been under construction for a while so the less attention it got the better!
The portfolio is the main focus of the website and where I spent the most time developing. Work can be viewed by Media or by Client, depending what you are interested in. Selecting Branding, Print, Websites, 3D and VFX or Illustration will quickly display an overview of all the content in that section with just a single click. Since what I create for a client often covers multiple media’s, browsing by client will list all the relevant media for that client, again as an overview of work produced. If more information is wanted for a piece of work, another click on the image will display higher resolution images and also a brief description. The plan is to give the user the flexability to choose how and what they view, and not to over face them with too much content at any one time. The site is also easy for me to manage with a CMS since I only ever have to enter the work once.
One of the new parts of the website is that it is mobile optimised. In particular the site has been designed and tested to run on the most popular current devices such as Apples iPhone (3G, 3GS & 4) iPod Touch, a whole host of Android powered phones, some Nokia and Blackberry smartphones and eventually Windows phone 7 and tablets such as the iPad. SinceI have only tested the site on certain devices it is likely that errors might occur if you device hasn’t been tested. If you notice an issue, please get in touch. I will keep an eye on this and make changes when necessary which should help me build better website and applications in future.
There are a few other ideas and experiments I wish to include on this website before I use them on client / commercial work, but I probably wont have time to do these until the new year because of limited time. Follow me on Twitter if you want to hear of these updates. Thanks for checking the site out, and watch this space for changes.
