My Life In Web Design

There were a few hours spent being stumped. That was overcome through a lot of reading, inferring and head banging!

It’s almost 4:00 AM and I’m sitting here looking at a website I designed for a friend’s business. I can’t show it to you because it’s not live and it’s not mine to preview–but it looks like a real professional website. Wow! Who knew?

There are around 20 pages on the site and almost as many pieces of video. It took dozens of hours to piece together. Quick comes later with more practice.

The site is simple and clean. It’s a hack of another theme I found online, though most of the parent/child resemblance is gone. The site is very blue.

The surprise to me is I can do this for someone else and have it come out looking nice. That’s not an overwhelmingly confident statement, is it?

There were more than a few hours spent stumped. Everything ground to a halt. It was only overcome through a lot of reading, inferring and a moderate amount of head banging! Mostly the CSS and HTML came together easily. Everything made logical sense as design problems were faced and solved.

What I’m clumsily trying to say is at this moment I have a feeling of inner satisfaction and accomplishment. I am the master of a young man’s game.

  1. Obi One would be proud Geoff, in his absence I will send you props for forging ahead and completing the job! (not just a young mans game after all) :o)

  2. Heh, just remember:

    “Old age and experience beats youth and enthusiasm every time…”

    “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro” is what truly applies to what I’m currently doing…
