Question Of The Week


Just a quick question and challenge for you guys – Are you pushing yourself to learn? I have felt kinda blah these last few month in terms of my motivation and creativity as a designer and developer. I think this was because I wasn’t pushing myself to learn new things. So I just recently decided to learn how to build sites in ExpresisonEngine and give myself a geek-ee challenge. It’s been frustrating and fun at the same time but I can say for the first time in a while I’m actually EXCITED about learning something and im actually doing something! (instead of putting things off).

So I’d like to challenge you guys to push yourself and learn new things! Leave a comment and let me know what you are challenging yourself with!

How do you get clients to give timely feedback on projects?

I’ve been running into some situations with clients (who are otherwise great) that haven’t been giving timely feedback. How do you deal with this? Do you remind them via email? Phone? Do you have anything in your contract regarding delays?

Question of the week: Is it better to specialize in a specific area of design, or to be a jack of all trades? Where do you currently stand in this spectrum of design? Currently pursuing a niche? Or are you knowledgeable in many aspects of design?
