On April, 30th we welcomed our son Raldari to the world! Born at 3:45am, 7lbs 4oz. Momma and baby boy are healthy and doing well.
It has been a busy month around here for me as I've been working on a bunch of projects. I added to that workload when I set out to redesign my logo one morning and then had to redesign my website to fit it.
The backbone of my site now stems from a system that I was contracted by Stellar Blue Webdesign to build. It was for Miron Construction and gives them the abilty to display all the projects they have worked on, along with adding new projects on their own. That has led to me adapting the system for a few other sites so I figured I do the same for my own. I added in a few other pieces from other sites I've worked on, slapped on a template that I designed, and now I have a new site.
I'm still adding in all the projects I've worked on, along with a collection of my favorite photography, but I'm happy to have a new face for my business. It is a more minimalistic style than I usually go for, but I felt it was time to go for something a little different.
In 2004 I created my first blog under the moniker Artifishall and proceeded to use that name all over the internet. When it came time for me to register the domain I found that someone named Arti who likes to fish had already claimed it. Recently someone emailed me about buying that domain but instead of responding I looked to see if it was available, and it was. So now I have the domain that I originally wanted along with artifishalldesign.com. I'll keep them both around but having the new one gave me a reason to redesign my site around the new platform I created. A few other sites that are running on that platform include ifdakar.com, ifdakamp.com, thebiggreenfest.com, and grasshoppers-tribe.com/.
