I’m happy to announce the launch of the new design for WizOneSolutions.com.
After many months of anticipation, it’s here! There’s quite an interesting story behind this new design, too.
Around the end of summer last year, I asked my good friend Andrew Sepic over at Think Up! Design if he could help me create a better design for WizOneSolutions.com than the one you’ve seen for the last forever. He created what you see now. As time went by, in my spare I gradually put it together, implementing it as a Thematic child theme (thanks ThemeShaper), coding the CSS and ensuring it worked well in all modern browsers (sorry, IE 6). It’s such a relief to finally get this out of the way, and it’s a big step in terms of giving a real picture of what I can do. The old theme had the unfortunate effect of casting my programming skills in a mediocre light. I think this one does them some more justice 🙂
I’m not done yet, of course. I’ll keep improving the site, particularly the Portfolio area, so keep an eye out for more to come over the next few months.
I’m expecting the site to be down during this window of time – I’ll try to put up a maintenance page, but if I don’t get to it, then here’s your explanation.
Ironically, if you don’t visit the site before I post this message, it’ll mean nothing. So I’ll try to switch to the maintenance page.
We’ve moved! Previously based in the Berkeley, California area, I am now based out of the San Gabriel Valley in Los Angeles. Of course, I serve clients both locally and online, so this is not a major change – but I thought I’d let you know.
By the way, if you’re wondering why I don’t blog much, it’s because I’m busy working on client projects. Once some of those wrap, I’ll have time to improve the look and feel of everything. You should look me up on oDesk if you want to see my portfolio in another light. I am almost done with implementing my new site design, so you may see that at any time.
Nonetheless, contact me at any time!
I’ll write another post when I can. Until then, have a meaningful Easter.
Just to let you know that, as I’m sure you must wonder upon seeing this site, a new theme is indeed coming. In fact, it’s already been designed and is currently being implemented.
So stay tuned…it’ll be quite nice to look at.
Just thought to mention that you can now view the many exciting pages of wizonesolutions.com (cough) on your iPhone, iPod Touch, Android device (I’ve got a G1 myself), or Blackberry Touch!
Thanks to the makers of the WPtouch plugin for enabling this possibility. The plugin’s home page is: http://bravenewcode.com/wptouch
Today I snuck up a link to a portfolio page. Said portfolio will be getting filled in soon. I just wanted to make sure you realize you can just contact me for the moment if you want to know what work I’ve done. Rest assured that I’ve done this stuff before…a lot 🙂
Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend.
Update: I’ve finally reached a mutually beneficial agreement with my contact form. It works now.
I just noticed the contact form has become a captcha nazi. Contact forms don’t like me, for some reason. But not to fear – I’m on the case and it’ll be fixed shortly. Watch for one of those fancy Update: messages on this blog post!
