Web Site Philosophy
Background and Resume
- Masters work in design from the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California.
- Masters work in Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
These two areas of study are uniquely related to web design work. When designing a web site, I consider many factors before I release it onto the internet for global access:
- Ideas can be actualized on the Net instantly.
- Ideas can be made visible, and seen by others instantly.
- There is free choice to look at anything at anytime.
- A virtual community is made real through creative linking.
In summary, when designing a web site, I realize that anyone in the world who has access to a computer will be able to see that web site. It is important to understand what image best describes what it is that we are trying to convey.
It is also imperative to provide information that is related to the main idea, and promotes the overall objective of the web site. This insures a web site that not only reinforces itself with the main message it is trying to convey, but also has the ability to be referenced to similar web sites on the internet.
