Finally updated my Design Site
« on: July 03, 2006, 12:34:29 PM »
Lunarpages keeps me too damn busy, but I finally had time to update my own companies website.
Although I still have a lot of stuff (10 years worth of work) to add to the portfolio and other tweaks here and there. (Maybe I'll get that done tommorrow..... yeah right).

Anyways check it out: http://www.drakestorm.com and let me know what you like/dislike about it.

I like it! It's nice to see a web design site that isn't obsessed with putting everything into flash with unnecessary animation and music that tends to distract from the work that is being showcased...

You get my vote for a job well done! :)

(Of course my vote and a few dollars might make a down payment on a cup of coffee, so take it for what it's worth :) )

Yeah, updates are super easy, since the backend is wordpress.  As far as a flash portfoilio, I had one of those, built withs Flash/PHP/MySQL, spent a lot of time onit but got tired of it really fast. So here we are with short and simple. :D

Yeah, wouldn't that be nice.  They always seem to want the newest fad or gimmick (wether it be flash or AJAX).
I try to remind them that just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should.

Ha! Ain't that the truth! Hey, have a great 4th Todd! I'm about to pack it in for the day myself and head for the grill.  :D

i like it, its smooth and simple... only thing is, the homepage looks like its part of the portfolio... seems like something missing.... maybe a welcome message...

its like i've clicked a link to go to a website, and i've ended up on a content page...
