This last week I have been doing a lot of work on updating my website, and putting a demo reel together. It has been a while since I have used DreamWeaver to make a website, and it is proving to be much more difficult then in the past. Granted I normally did not try and do anything special or overly complicated with my website design as I am doing now. I want my website to be simple and clean in the design, but I want it to have some more advanced features under the hood. For example I want it to look great on all platforms, so no matter if you are looking at it on a desktop or mobile phone you will still have a great experience.
I have been trying to watch YouTube videos to learn coding for fluid grid website designs, and I think my head is ready to explode from trying to understand it. I was working on it for several days until I eventually had to start working on something else to keep me from going crazy. I have a new found respect for web designers and programers. I won’t give up, and will soon be going back to it.
On a more productive note I finished editing the company’s first demo reel which includes some of the work we did for Toys”R”Us. I included it in this post, but if you want to watch it in HD you will have to watch it on Vimeo.
Currently I’m 6 away from having 2,000 Facebook Likes on my company page. The momentum I had in previous weeks has slowed down, but I’m still moving towards my goal of 10,000 likes by the year’s end.
As far as outside work, I currently don’t have any new projects lined up, but from what I hear that is typical for the beginning of the year in the commercial world. The calm is refreshing after the last 6 months, and allows me to get caught up with other things. I feel in a few weeks I will be ready for my next projects, but I will have to figure out how to get those projects.
