digital52 version 2.0 » Nov 30, 2009 9:15 PM » Design
The new site has launched. Once again it's been completely coded from scratch, which has given me a chance to play around with some of ColdFusion's AJAX capabilities. It's not entirely complete but I thought it best to get it out there and then work on filling in the holes as I go. If I tried to wait until I felt like it was perfect then it'd never see the light of day. No doubt after using it for awhile I'll figure out what needs improving and refining. I do actually have the update tools mostly complete for this version which is already a big improvement over the last iteration.

Version 2.0 marks the first time a blog has been a part of the site. This will primarily house work and ideas that don't warrant being part of the portfolio. That's not to say they aren't worthwhile, just smaller or occasionally (and hopefully more often) person projects. I have lots of past work that I'd like to retroactively post so those will be showing up on a regular basis until it's all online. Going through Zip discs and backup drives I've found about 90% of what I was looking for. Not really much from Herron, although looking back there is a lot of stuff from that era I don't really care for.

Also new is the idea of a sketchbook. I don't know exactly how that is going to go. I'd love to post something to that on a daily basis but I'm not sure if that's realistic. The sketchbook will ideally be looser or hand drawn stuff. I do finally have a scanner again so that won't be as difficult as it once was. I do have a few illustration projects I'd like to do, but finding the time and motivation has been tricky.

The portfolio section is in pretty good shape. I'm not convinced it's what I ultimately want it to be, but it's a good starting point. The handful of "projects" are all in place which are multiple pieces for a single client. I also have a good collection of miscellaneous logos, websites and other things that I've done over the years that will form something like a gallery.

Anyway, enjoy the site!
