A Simple Measure
So that's for you, the next time you rearrange. I won't be needing it any time soon.
I am looking for websites with elements that would be good for ABC's new website. I have been working on designs myself, but as much as I try to follow my boss' instructions, I can't seem to hit it with him. It actually seems like it's getting worse. Anyway, here is my latest version. I would really love to go with a more Texas home-town theme, but he's all about the clean and shiny. So we have vast differences in taste, which makes it really hard for me to catch his vision. It's a good thing I don't do graphic design for a living...mostly. We're trying to give the designers we have hired some idea of what we're looking for though, and I still think a crappy rendition of we want is better than telling them that we like all of this random stuff from other sites.
So here is the latest.
I am reluctant to throw a bunch of promotions and rotating flash images in the center there, although I have thought about it a lot and I just don't know what else to do. I think it has to be done really carefully... I don't want it to be another one of those crummy cluttered sites and thankfully my boss agrees, but he still thinks we should have them on there. There's got to be a stylish way to do it. I'll be working on that.
For now, I am heading to Luby's for a Chamber Ambassador's meeting. I haven't been to Luby's in over a decade for good reason. Makes me feel a little sick thinking about my last experience.
Sorry for glumness. Today hasn't been the greatest and there's not a lot of chance it will resolve itself soon. Anyway, hope it does and hope you have a good day.
