As we embark on a new year, we tend to take a little inward look at ourselves and decide to make some New Year’s Resolution or other. I’m not a big fan of resolutions but it does occur to me that I use one phrase far too often during client meetings.
The cobbler’s children have no shoes.
Do as I say, not as I do.
Another phrase I tend to use, when explaining the benefits of blogging and social media. As a web designer, I should have a damn good website, a great blog and a fantastic portfolio.
Well, this website gets lots of compliments but I guess it could do with a spring clean. The blog posts get great results – when I write them – so a little tweak in frequency required there.
But our portfolio hasn’t been updated in months! It’s easy to fall behind, it’s the last step of any project and when you’re busy it’s a step that’s easy to postpone. So a change of tack – rather than wait until it’s up-to-date, I’m going to try and add new launches when they happen and go back and fill the gaps gradually.
So, keep an eye out for tweaks and gap-filling in January but in the meantime, here’s our first launch of 2016…
In theory, this is the kind of site that shouldn’t work any more. But we like to experiment. A one page site for this Canterbury Locksmith with the aim of improving their visibility. Interestingly, we hadn’t even finished building this one before the client commissioned us to replace their pricey Yell-built main website, so watch this space!
