So today I am back in the position of web designer/architect/crafter/etc. I have, out of necessity, taken on the task of developing the new public web site for the company I work for.
This is not necessarily a bad thing. Except for the fact that I have been out of UI development for about four months. I have been nose deep in framework code and PHP application building that I haven’t done a thing in markup. And that has hurt me. But for the last week or so I have been spending time in HTML, CSS and the like trying to get five different concepts turned into markup by the 15th of the month. I will hit that target, but only because I am dedicated enough to do it.
The next big thing is getting the new server into the DMZ and getting the application code written to hook into my framework so that these pretty UIs can actually be seen on January 1. When the new public site is scheduled to launch. Which means I have a lot more work to do.
And I have to still relearn a bunch of stuff before I do it. Wish me luck.
