What? Web Design?

I designed my first website.

I didn't build it, mind you, because UGM now has an in-house digital media dude (Yaaay, James!). He took my design and totally made it happen. We're working out the kinks and have some great new plans for the UGM's online future.

The crazy thing is that I really enjoyed myself in the process. I've always been drawn to print media more than web and really didn't have much interest in learning the world of web design. I apparently don't know myself that well. CSS and HTML still sound overwhelming for my already-tired brain, but what I really enjoyed was building the concept and imagining what it would look like.

Of course I enjoyed myself. My passion for excellent visual communication is only growing, and web design is just another opportunity to do just that. What's even better though, is having a team of creative thinkers to give you feedback and ideas to improve the idea and help it succeed. We have such a great team here at UGM. It's always such a relief and excitement to see a project this big come to fruition and then watch what becomes of it.

Take a look around the site and let me know what you think!
