I am finally able to show the site. Although it is primitive, it's not too bad for only completing one course in HTML.

I like what you did there. Good style and layout, and use of color.

 

Very attractive pages.

 

Did you actually do these in 2004? Becasue i'll tell you, that would be a good looking and up to date looking site today.

 

Nice work.

Yes, I took a beginning HTML course in 2004 and this was my final project. I was taking a course in Photoshop and Illustrator the same semester so I just applied what I learned in each course to the website design. I really wanted Dreamweaver, java script or Flash to make it a multimedia site, which is why I never hosted the site. I scanned the R-30 tour book and used the color picker to get all the correct tones and shades.

While the technical skills are nice, it's the tasteful presentation and communications design skill that makes those pages good.  It's not knowledge, knowledge is only half of it.  In your career and otherwise, learn to take advantage of these abilities.  They can't be taught.

Learning new skills and enhancing your existing ones is good. In fact, it's a requirement in today's world.

Your use of color is one of my favorite things....I thought I'd made it (as a kid) when my parents bought me the 64 color Crayola box (with the sharpener!).  With my HUGE "Peanuts" coloring book, I was SET!

You get offshore developers to do that stuff.  The Photoshop/Illustrator stuff and being a designer is worth way more than the tech stuff.

The big things now is social media, and only certain types. If you can create a six-second video that goes viral you're golden.


Please buy my books so I can send my girl to a decent school.

huh, I don't remember an Alex website. I did spend a lot of time on Geddy's My Favorite Headache site. Was a bit sad when it folded.

I never uploaded the site to the Internet. This was a class project that I completed in 2004 using the R-30 theme.
