About thirty minutes ago I received an e-mail that I’m still quite giddy over. As you may or may not know, I’m a very huge Virb fan and am constantly on it every day. I even run Stylevirb.com which is a resource website for tutorials, pre-made profiles, and other odds’n’ends (though it’s still bare right now, need to get some content up.)
Anyway, this e-mail was an offer to design a profile for a very large online based band merchandise company. Needless to say I am ridiculously stoked and cannot wait to do this. I wouldn’t even care if I didn’t get reimbursement for it. Getting the offer alone, is enough to satisfy my needs. Then again, who am I to pass up the opportunity to fiddle around with what I know (that being coding and Virb) and getting something back in return.
Since I’m still on the topic of design, I’m about 75% done with the hand-coded theme. I have about 90% of the skeleton complete. That other 10% leaves the ancillary section of the website. Otherwise the overall concept is finished, it’s just a matter of finishing up the base wordpress theme pages, fixing up the graphics, checking browser compatibility, accessibility and validity and reworking the content. Though I’ll worry about the content after I put up the theme. Thanks for some of the peeps at Snark for providing some excellent constructive criticism.
