During the day, I sit in a chair and make web sites. But
my portfolio is really old right now and the thought that
you might see it makes me wince a little bit. Eventually I'll
update it and you'll be like, "Wow, all of these sites
look alike, sort of like when a band's songs all kind of sound
the same. But they're pretty nice."
I considered linking to some recent work from here, but I
don't really want my clients to see this referral page in
their stats and then come to dorkist and read things
like this, because that makes me wince a little bit, too.
If you're really curious, you can write to me and we can
talk about the internet and how it changed everyone's lives
and how clean designs are so much better than designs that
use lots of gradients and shadows. And then I'll show you
some sites I've done where they made me use lots of gradients
and shadows, but of course the clients didn't specifically
request those things, they just said, "It's boring,"
or, "I thought you understood that we wanted our site
to be jazzier," and I had to guess that what they meant
by that was something really ugly, and then I gave it to them.
"It" being "something ugly," not "a
piece of my mind."
