Workpod 9 Redesign

Workpod 9 Redesign

Last Friday marked the launch of a website redesign for Workpod 9, an architecture and design firm based in Austin, Texas. I worked on the project as web developer, as well as design helper to Ryan Coover, principal of Workpod 9, who designed most of the site.

Into the Wild

As of February 1st, I am a full-time contractor, meaning I am no longer the Web Developer at California College of the Arts. Now is an exciting and scary time. It was my choice to leave and start fresh on my own (Exciting), but I chose to leave a comfortable, secure position in order to pursue an unknown, financially-risky path that doesn't come with health insurance (Scary).

Consolidating Your 404s in Google Analytics

Here's a bit of Javascript you can use on your website's 404 page so that when you look at your stats in Google Analytics, all the missing pages that your visitors tried to visit are grouped into one place. This technique can be useful as it gives you a single place to look in your stats for any bad URLs that people visit often, perhaps as the result of a mistyped link, or a deleted page.

Introduction

A website devoted to my web pursuits...

The plan is to use this space for showing the web development and design work I'm doing, and to blog about my projects. I'll also be writing tutorial articles from time to time, and the occasional post to point out something interesting I've found.

Some of you may know of my previous website sphericle.com. That site will continue to exist, minus the section on web-related content (which will now reside here). I'm hoping that this separation will give that website a better sense of self.
