Website Design – A Closet Nerd, That’s Me

I used to design and build websites (it was my own business), but moving to S Korea for 4 years made it impossible to continue. And I have to admit that, while I was there, I didn’t actually miss it as much as I could or should have.

Now a days, from time to time, I only put sites together for close family or friends as a favour, which is probably taking the pressure off and I’m really enjoying it as a result.

Web design for me, is a different kind of creativity. I love (don’t laugh now) getting down and dirty with coding and fiddling about with technical stuff. I can spend a whole day splashing colour, pattern and images about, and I don’t get all messy. If I make a mistake, I don’t have to chuck paper or canvas out either, I can just click the mouse a few times to go back a few steps and do it again.

Don’t get me wrong, I love painting, but doing something completely different on the odd occasion is utterly refreshing.

Then again, I used to be really sneaky and combine drawing with my site designing, creating entirely hand drawn sites, just to keep my painting hand in.

Come to think of it, after reading through the above gush of enthusiasm, maybe I do miss it. Just a little, tiny, tiny, wee bit…

Above is an image from one my old sites, Tramp2Vamp, now known as NHJ Style Consultancy – I loved working with her but didn’t design her new site.
