I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

Design, Me and this Site

Over the next couple of weeks you may exper­i­ence a bit of funk­i­ness on the site, so I am apo­lo­gising for this in advance. As you may have noticed already I am begin­ning to tinker with the appear­ance of it and I will start to integ­rate my Port­fo­lio. I am start­ing to get the design nailed down now, well at least the arrange­ment of it and a cer­tain amount of the con­tent. The appear­ance of the site will likely stem from my own per­son­al ID which I am devel­op­ing. Since the site is meant to reflect me and my work it will have to con­tain some of me with­in it.
This is some­thing which I am quite look­ing for­ward to. I don’t cur­rently know great amounts about cod­ing and such so this exer­cise will be one of tri­al and error and is likely to con­tain a steep learn­ing curve. Hope­fully I will be able to add a string to my bow, or at least begin to. I have always thought that a design­er who is flex­ible and know­ledge­able in dif­fer­ent areas stands a bet­ter chance of suc­cess than someone who is lim­ited in what they can do. Since I spend a lot of my time on the inter­net I feel this area of design is very import­ant, some­where in which the future of design lies. Now I’m not say­ing that print is dis­ap­pear­ing, I’m just say­ing that I feel the future of design lies in this area, or rather a blend of the two areas. Being to design in both domains with the two work­ing hand in hand will, I believe, become a neces­sary skill in the design envir­on­ment that I want to be pre­pared for when I find myself in a pos­i­tion that I need both.
I wil try and keep things going on the blog sec­tion dur­ing the re-design, I feel it will be a good idea to keep you read­ers pos­ted on devel­op­ments as a way of keep­ing myself focused ont he job in hand. It may also serve as a place to plea for guid­ance in cod­ing and mak­ing my site do the things I want it to do.
So I will sign off with a keep your eyes peeled, I’m look­ing for­ward to this and I hope you guys are too.
