I thought it would be cool to visualize my portfolio in Dipity.
It’s a work-in-progress thing. So bear with me as I add to the topic, one brand at a time.
I’ve got a Flickr photostream called Drum n Bass.
It’s going to document all of my drum n bass adventures.
If you’ve got some photos that you’d think would be great to add to it, leave a comment with a link!

I’ve crossed out the skills that I think I’m good at and left out the ones that I think I completely suck at:
Hehe. 12 out of 18.
Not bad, eh?
I used to wonder what the point was when people asked me to print out and board up our web pages. In an age where it’s easier, and of course, more convenient to e-mail or FTP your work to clients, why would anyone need an A3-sized full-color print to sell an idea?
The difference, as I would soon discover at presentations and WIP meetings with clients, is that you decide what your client looks at first, not your client.
You sequence, you juxtapose and you cajole and flatter your own work, instead of running the risk of letting your audience decide what to praise or criticize first. You orchestrate and make the sale before anyone else so much as blinks away their apprehension.
And go read his book The Principals of Beautiful Web Design to get some more useful tips on designing websites.

You might have noticed that my posts have been a lot more lifestyle lately.
Yeah, well I did some thinking about how I blog and what I’ve been talking about for the past 8 months.
Initially, I wanted this to be a ‘work’ blog where I talked about interesting trends and cool things that I’ve learned as a writer and information architect for my agency. But lately, I’ve been thinking that writing about work all the time is kinda gay, unless you’re Seth Godin.
I mean, it gets a little old, after a while. It feels…limiting.
It’s gonna go a little like this: the focus is still my day-to-day work, but I’m also gonna write about whatever it is that I feel like writing about.
I’ve been blogging long enough to know that if you like what you read, you’ll come back. If not, there’s always Valleywag.
And they’re awesome, by the way.
