I’m tempted to post the same generic crap that most others do in a situation such as this: “I’ve been busy.” But in truth that would be a bit of an understatement so instead I’ll list what’s waiting in the wings and a few things that bug me in the web world as of late. Chew what you will.
So, in the drafts area are two blog posts coming to fruition that I’m hoping to post up in rapid succession and return to a normal (nearly-weekly) posting schedule. I also have a personal project that’s been in the works since I last posted, which is also getting ready to see the light, and I’ll probably proclaim its coming as soon as I can set a date with myself.
In the meantime, I’ve stumbled or been beaten over the head with a few things lately while browsing the web:
- Justified text bastardizing what are otherwise nice designs
- A theme developing in the web design community of regurgitating articles written by others in slightly different format but with relatively the same content. And I don’t mean this in the way of reporting about Apple’s newest project, but rather rewriting articles in order to gain traffic; even though the new version is not better or even at all more helpful than the previous
- Radial gradients behind the logo, blending into a flat color background. I think we’ve found the new trend
But all is not gloom and doom, there are some relatively brilliant things being done. I just like to focus on negatives from time to time.
In any case, I just wanted to let it out that I’m not dead (yet); there’s more to come soon, cheers.
