Site Redesign

Sep
28

I have had several clients recently approach me about redesign. Simple stuff. Sites have a certain fashion cachet and they want to keep up. The iPhone and smartphones are taking over the world and sites need to refect that they will be seen in the small screen.

25 Great Cheatsheats

Sep
04

I know it seems weird that someone who does webdesign would use cheatsheets but I do it all the time. Part of my wiki reference holds all these great one line codes or definitions that I use once or twice a month. I can't exactly remember the syntax of them. So this was a great find.

I thought for a moment that there wasn't going to be a Drupal one but there is and it is great.

"Professional Secrets"

Many times people ask me for advice which I know is easily available on the Internet. Rather than spend time rewriting information that is already there - here it is.

Web Writing

Writing for the Web is different. In a word -- it is about keywords. Most people want to be found on the web. That requires not just writing for the reader but also for the Search Engines. Finding the keywords that people search for and then writing pages that reflect those words is where sites begin.

Web surfers often have short attention spans, so you have to grab their attention with graphics and great text. In fact Jakob Nielson of Useit.com tells us that they don't read, they scan. If they want to read anything, they print it out but that's another issue.
