It is almost funny that, as a web designer, building my own website takes me so much more time and effort than any other. To me, and probably to many other people, it is much easier to describe and analyze someone else’s identity than it is to do so with my own. But there is light at the end of the tunnel! During the past few months I have been going through some great podcasts, books, and research that have given me the opportunity to get some great insights into how I want to represent myself. My website needs to represent more than just my story and what I do. I want it to expose what drives me and what I consider my purpose. The all important “why”.
Therein lies one of my favorite parts of a website design or redesign; it is an opportunity to raise our heads and look around, face a mirror, and re-energize the path and the image we put forth.
It may be that nothing needs to change internally, but chances are: there is. Even if we did not live in a world where everything is changing at an accelerated pace, there would still always be room for improvement. And honestly, I would not want it any other way. Without change, our creativity would only live in the imagination.
Anyway, I would like to end this post by revealing one of the pieces of my identity I want to represent on this website: transparency. I have been and will be writing with the most amount of honesty and professionalism I can muster at the time. Please feel free to do the same in the comments or any other form of contact.
