Trying to find the best design for a&awerks websight. Started out with something a little high production and implemented it in the “Coming Soon” page here

Coming Soon


The serif fonts and the gears are something I’m looking to maintain. To me, a serif font is industrious, professional and consistent. The gears and cogs are a further representation of “industrious” and more towards hard-working and technically inclined.

Built up the “steel version” under the high production look of the Coming Soon page. The layout is a good one, but we don’t feel it’s right for our purposes. I could tweak it some more, but … the layout just isn’t right for the project.

Changed the logo to just the cog and started working with a simpler, more white-spacey layout but it’s too open. I abandoned it.

But this is the best. The colors just happened and I got the chance to make another robot. The layout is open but not empty. One page website. Exercises all the programming I can swing and it’s neat.

Turns out CS3 implemented all this fun spry stuff via javascript and jquery. It’s getting me learning jQuery like I want and … well, looks great.

ae media

I’m really liking the æ media site. It incorporates flash, jQuery, HTML5 and so on. Very nicely exercising my skillset.

Needs some background textures maybe. Perhaps I’ll dig the coral tile up and work with it.

Mondays

I think I’ve reworked the site for good. Kinda went back n forth with the photography section.

Gotta get in a run today, get photo disks in the mail, meet with Craig and Frances over the CCDC submittal and then meet up with a fella about a potential position.

ChicagoHouse Update

Work done on the chicagoHouse site. Kinda fixed the nave bar, but now something else is happening there. Too tired to sort it out now, but I’m sure it’s simple:

New CSS Layout

Named layout 01 though it’s technically layout 04. Features a nice single-page view great for featuring photo essays – perhaps an image-driven How-To or step-by-step.
