{January 25, 2013}   Why I Love Fantasy

Why I Love Fantasy.


An extremely impressive, in-depth look at what makes fantasy such a compelling genre, and why it is just as respectable a genre as any other. Cheers to fantasy! 🙂


{May 13, 2010}   End of semester thoughts

So obviously I completely forgot about this project during the second half of the semester, not going to lie about that one.  But I still enjoyed the assignment when I did remember.

Analyzing web design is not the easiest thing in the world, and at times I feel I could have gone more in-depth with my criticisms.  Even so, I feel a critique of a website should be of benefit to every-day web viewers.  Getting too technical just makes it too complicated, I’d rather stay basic and easy-to-understand.  To me critiquing web design is almost natural, so I want everyone to know where I’m coming from and what I’m talking about.  Overall, it was a fun experience, especially since now I mental critique every site I visit!

{May 13, 2010}   A compliment to their name is an intriguing showcase page for an artist named Damjan Stankovic, and unlike Miltos Manetas, this guy’s site is a tribute to his talents.  The obvious focus of the page is the artistic yet useful pieces Damjan has created, with a very nicely timed slideshow sampling four of his selected projects being showcased on the site.  Set up like a resume with contact info and a link to his email at the top right corner of the site, this page is simple to navigate, uses well-chosen colors and fonts, and is overall a simple yet unique web design.

{January 21, 2010}   An intro…

This blog is meant to be an analytical discussion and reflection on web designs and social networks.  Sounds dry, but trust me it’s cooler than you think.

Anyway,  a little about myself.  I’m planning to be a novelist in the future, working on books in my spare time while I work.  I’m hoping to be an editor for a publishing company and someday create an online editing firm, but that’s a long way off.  Any genre of writing is good for me, so grant writing to poetry is fair game.  That’s about it other than personal interests and things I’m sure no one’s worried about.
