Job Training for the Web 2.0 Era: Design Like a Pro in 10 Minutes

Friday (10/8/07), 2:28 pm. 80 comments.

Some of you may remember a post of mine from over a year ago in which I heavily suggested that the true money will lie with the Greek majors. However, I realize that not everybody is into that sort of thing, and some of you might still be completely intent upon sticking with a design career.

New Portfolio Launch

Tuesday (27/3/07), 7:51 pm. 6 comments.

While it’s been almost two months since I’ve written a solid full-length post here, I’m not dead, and I haven’t been completely idle on the web, either. As my old portfolio has been extremely outdated for far too long now, I am finally launching my new portfolio. Check it out, tell me what you think, hire me, send me hate mail…whatever you guys like to do.

That stuff that people put on their walls in the 70s.

Feeling that my desktop needed a little makeover, I created a simple little desktop wallpaper…And of course, like most things I do, decided it post it here.

Rounded Images using CSS and some optional JavaScript

Wednesday (7/6/06), 12:28 pm. 34 comments.

Regardless of what some people say, there is one area of rounded corners that hasn’t been dealt with much and that is rounding the corners of images. Before, if you wanted to round an image’s corners, you’d have to open it up in photoshop (or whatever image editor you use) and fix it up there. But no more…

Yep, I’ve launched my reboot. If you’re a regular, go ahead and clear your cache and give this page a good refresh.

As I’ve been designing and developing my reboot, I’ve fallen in love with a few new things. Allow me to introduce them to you:

Allow me to introduce you to my new little app, Postable

Friday (24/3/06), 8:31 pm. 247 comments.

I absolutely hate having to switch all the “< " and ">” signs in my code to “&lt;” and “&gt;”, respectively. I also hate having to write “&amp;” anytime I want to include an ampersand. This makes including code snippets on my blog and whatnot extremely annoying, and today I finally got fed up.

May 1st I Reboot

Tuesday (21/2/06), 3:38 pm. 4 comments.

Yeah, I jumped the bandwagon and will be launching the new elliotswan.com on May 1st with the rest of the CSS Rebooters.

I figure hope this will give me 1) enough time to make sure the design I’ve been working on is perfect before launch, and 2) give me a reason to finish it.

If I’m really focused lucky maybe I’ll even have my new portfolio up in time for the Reboot.

You may remember the What’s Your Factor contest I blogged about a little while ago…Well voting is up, and you can vote once every 24 hours. If you’d like to help a blogger out, mine’s the “PanicFactor” one (it’ll also say my name underneath it)….

Rebranding…and some new business cards.

Wednesday (4/1/06), 10:31 pm. 7 comments.

I know I mentioned a while back that I was working on a “realign” here, and I hope that I’ll finish that sometime in the near future. So while I’m at it, I’ve been thinking about doing a little “rebranding” as well. elliotswan.com would be more of my central hub for all my online activities, rather than just my blog.

It would keep things much simpler.
