Wow! It’s been a long time since I’ve updated what I’ve been working on. My only excuse—I’ve been busy. Here are some of my recent and current projects:
Website design ready for iPad: I’m currently working on several website designs with an emphasis on iPad compatibility. I’ll post these websites when they are completed. Below are some of the main points regarding designing for iPad that I took almost verbatim from this article: http://sixrevisions.com/web-applications/designing-web-apps-for-the-ipad/
- No Flash: iPad cannot display Flash objects.
- No Mouse Cursor: This means that mouse events, such as mouseover and hover events, are not possible.
- Scrollbars Don’t Act as Expected: Scrollbars are not displayed for scrollable areas with overflowing content. In addition, scrolling requires two-finger gestures.
- Touch Screen: The #1 difference between browsing on your computer or laptop and browsing on your iPad is that you use your fingers.
EPub training: I’m becoming familiar with the work-flow using InDesign CS5 to turn printed material into EPub and Kindle documents. Lynda.com is a great resource for all kinds of software training.
Red Tape, novel by David Michelson: I have been working on this project pro bono with David and am happy to say that this book is now available as an EPub, or softcover book. 100% of the proceeds go to the International Campaign for Tibet.
Labels for Ah Yes Creations organic skin creams and lip balms: Please check out the amazing products at Ah Yes Creations. They are fantastic! (I swear by the Muscle and Joint Heaven. It really works.) Here are a few of the completed label designs.
I feel blessed to have a wonderful family of clients. Not only are they fantastic people to work with, but what they are accomplishing through their services is indeed praiseworthy, and I am so grateful for them. Please check out my business website to see many of these clients listed. And more to be added soon!
