Blog post: Playing with Bootstrap

Posted on

It’s been a while since I posted, and I feel bad about that as I’d been doing really well to blog once a month. Unfortunately my new job meant I was so exhausted all the time! I’d get up at 6am every day then catch two buses to work (one of which was usually late […]

Well, I’m more or less done on my Jambonium One theme. I’ve styled every page that I can see (think I’m missing the non-custom post format templates, but I don’t foresee myself using those) and I’m pretty happy with how everything looks. The things that I’m most pleased with are: I’ve made a plugin (so […]

Just a quick note to say I didn’t get the job. Tom suggested I ask for feedback and even though I didn’t hold out much hope, I asked for some. It turns out the other applicants just had more experience, which makes me feel better. The rest of this week has been spent working out […]

The 1079design website is finally finished and I’m really proud of it. Most of the work had been done by last Friday in terms of the main code and the copywriting. I then spent this week tidying up the gallery page, adding some rotating banners and finishing off the filler text. As well as making […]

Dave signed off on the wireframes so I’ve been working on some concepts and ideas for the layout. I based most of the ideas on the logo that he uses – it’s good for brand recognition in my opinion. I came up with three in the end, and we settled on a combination of the […]

My friend Dave has asked me to make him a website! I’m really excited because it’s the first time I’ve had a client for a long while and a paying one too ;-). Dave has his own business making graphics for people – mostly beer labels and fliers for local businesses. He had the ability […]
