verily it was decided that it was time for a makeover of the thinktank site. this came down from on high because we went to some other web designers’ sites and realized most, if not all, our contemporaries tended to be a lot more conservative in their presentation on their own website. now, this seems counter-intuitive to me — i mean, it’s your site — you should show off how insanely badass you are. but no, most of them are fairly boring, professional-looking sites.
well we didn’t want to do that. but we did want to make it a bit more like what other people were doing.
so i had a brilliant idea to try to find a script or something that would allow for a dropdown menu that would choose the theme for the thinktank site. so you could pick which one you were looking at. not only would it be cool just for the cool gadget factor, but it would showcase our skillz and make us look more badass and give a lot of variety to the site. it would (in theory) be as good a representation of what we can and do…do…as the portfolio itself!
(as a sidenote, we’ve been watching way too much how i met your mother recently…..)
i’ve got a couple more themes for the thinktank site in the works and erin’s gonna make some so it should be pretty sweet.
in other news, it’s not quite done yet, but i’ve created a kickapps community for jazzsequence. you might remember me talking about kickapps a couple weeks ago in this post. mostly this was an experiment to set it up, get it working, and know what it’s about so i can start building it for other people. but it’s also cool in its own right and i think could take the place of the now-dead forums and such if, you know, i still *have* a community….if you have a login on the jazzsequence.com blog, you should already be able to log into the members area with the same info. if not, make one, and be awesome. there’s blogs and message boards and stuff (at least when i set it all up). you can see what i’m talking about at members.jazzsequence.com.
