I added a new feature to the site that breaks down time and software details for each project. It is my hope that it will help prospective clients get a better idea on what it takes to create the work that I do. Too many people STILL think that you just wave a magic wand and click a few buttons and BAM – you have good work. That has never been the case, nor shall it ever be such.I rolled up my sleeves and got to customizing the WordPress interface so I could toggle this data field on (the default is off) as needed. It made for a good exercise, because I learned a few things in the process… and I am definitely pleased with the result!
Even though I “revamped” the Slide Style™ site about six months ago… some sort of muse was pushing me to scrap it, and do something else. The hosting was up for renewal, so rather than renew, and keep the hacked up WordPress store that had too much going on, I opted to move everything over to a Big Cartel storefront. Keeping things inline with “less is more for 2010″, I stripped everything down to the barest of essentials. Dare I say that it looks MUCH better? The added functionality that Big Cartel provides, like easier combined & international shipping profiles, made the move that much sweeter.I have some new items making their way to the store over the next few days, so keep your eyes peeled!
In lieu of the new year, I decided to give the site a once-over with some new graphic elements and increased functionality. Since my pursuit of a career in professional drifting has long-since expired, I wanted adjust the main navigation to focus attention toward my artistic abilities.Special thanks to Carlos Richard for the photo in the main header!
