Last November, my wife Paulyn and I decided that we wanted to offer our pastor, Al Termulo of Christ Enthroned Church, a larger capacity hosting account and to clean up his current website. We called him up and a few days later, we met with him at our office. We discussed some of the limitations of their existing site as well as his vision for a new website. During our meeting, it became clear to both Pastor Al and myself that this had the potential to become an extraordinary website. We agreed to pursue the new website and to start gathering ideas, internally and externally and with the help of Marky Alviento, by mid-January we already had some preliminary content ready and we began building out the new site.
The year 2012 really started the big shift to the new trends we are seeing today in web design and development. Never before have people been so connected with each other as they are now. Social networks like Facebook and Twitter have successfully altered the way we communicate with one another. In being able to adapt to these circumstances, this phenomenon has naturally brought about many changes to the way we create websites. We can only expect this to continue growing in 2013. Here are my favorite 13 web design and development trends for 2013.
When Paulyn and I started this company years ago, we did so with one main principle in mind; to continually and consistently provide the best service to our clients at the lowest price possible. Back then, it was just my wife and my kids, Thea Angela and Tristan Angelo, who helped me provide services to our clients.
Today, my kids are grown up and I am older, but we still hold that same principle close to our heart, and we instill the same belief and work ethic in every person we employ.
Digital art is a general term for a range of artistic works and practices that use digital technology as an essential part of the creative and/or presentation process. Since the 1970s, various names have been used to describe the process including computer art and multimedia art.
A writer can write more stories but he’s not sure whether all of his novels or stories will become best sellers. A musician or a songwriter can create songs but not all of it will be classics. A painter can paint thousands of paintings but the percentage of his works to become a masterpiece is still unsure. In photography, a photographer’s first 10,000 pictures are his worst. A graphics artist can design more artworks but the possibility that all of his works will be approve by a client is still unsure. If you do this for a living what will you choose between “Quantity or Quality”? Some may think that it is quantity over quality but others think it is the other way. In my opinion I chose “Quality over quantity”.
Website designers might laugh at me while reading this or maybe say “yes it‘s true” quietly. Unfortunately I’m not one of you guys..I’m just staring around and walking around and talking around and suddenly a blog pop-up to my mind and translate it through my bare hands and here it is.
Your website project is not an easy thing to do. You might find it simple but there are functionalities that you may want to put in. A simple widget may take intense programming. A slider may need a perfect image sizing. And there’s a lot more.
iPhone 5 was just launched and it’s another leap forward for Apple and its developers. We have seen the patent battle between Apple and Samsung and somehow got excited about who is going to pay who? Well, it’s a different side of story. If you think about it very deeply, you will find gigantic mobile companies running the race in changing the world… through mobile communications.
As I was browsing the internet for an idea for my blog I accidently found a typography and it says. ” The pen tool is mightier than the sword.” My “idea light bulb” suddenly turned on….DING!!!! If the phrase “The pen is mightier than the sword” describes how powerful the work of writers are, then this typography ultimately describes how beautiful the artworks are for digital artist.
No question about it, the world is changing. The way we daily interact with each other has changed dramatically in the past few years.
I remember my first WAP-enabled mobile phone. It was simply amazing. Not only could I send SMS messages and make calls from virtually anywhere, I could even check my email and browse the web. Sort of.
