I have recently taken the plunge and become a freelance web designer and information architect. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and now the opportunity has arisen, I’m delighted.
My new professional website is now live (though still a little rough around the edges) and available at www.mode7media.co.uk I’ve just published my first blog post there called Keep It Simple Smarty-Pants about the importance of simplicity on the web.
If you or anyone you know needs the services of a freelance web designer / information architect please do get in touch, I’d be delighted to hear from you.
Now that I am free of the 9-5 I have made a slow and gradual start redeveloping this site, beefheart.com. The current design is well over 10 years old and although it has served us reasonably well over the years, a total redesign and refresh of all the content is long overdue.
Don’t worry, all the good stuff is staying, it will just be much easier to use, nicer to look at, easier to update and hopefully the hideously wrong and out of date stuff will be weeded out.
It’s a slow process so don’t expect any surprises in the next few weeks; there are thousands of files on the site which need to be edited and moved to the new system; but something good is on the way.
Thanks for all your continuing support, and if any of you fancy supporting me in my newest venture (the freelance web design) then you know what to do!
All the best, Graham.
I'm thrilled to hear this website is going to be restyled!
Thank you for all time you spend on this beautiful website.
Warm regards from The Netherlands,
Fantastic! I've frequented this site for years and am glad to know it's still in active development. I look forward to the new design, though I can't say I won't miss the old one.
Also, I've read your post at the Mode 7 blog and couldn't agree more with your observations. I'm a great believer in minimalism and have always appreciated Orwell's statements in particular.
Cheers from America,
and keep up the good work on the incredible and indispensable beefheart site!
