Well it's Monday night on the 15th January, 2010, I've had a hectic and tiring day at work and (about an hour ago) decided to go to bed early. However I couldn't help thinking I need to update my website (formally www.marksmedia.co.uk), and I've had this domain setup with a Squarespace account for over 2 years! So I'm out of bed and writing this!!
I'm 25 years old and a product designer, spending most of the day as I am now starring at a screen pushing at buttons. Normally at this point of deciding I want to create a new website I would sit down and research what is out there, draw up some ideas, etc. I then thought it would be pretty cool to document the creation of the site and blog it! - Perhaps it will create an interesting story and something cool for you to follow.
So, this is what my screen currently looks like;
It's pretty much blank, nothing to see here, zip. Just an old image created 2 years ago with my brother David (the name FusionWeld was "sparked" up between us as idea to create a joint site with our different skills in art and design coming together and a bit of fun, unfortunately neither of us had the time).
So, I guess the next step; form a list of stuff I want to stick into the site;
1. Designs I like, product, architectural & electrical
2. What I am up to (this blog & perhaps I enter the world of twitter)
3. Interesting design related things my friends are up to
4. A portfolio of my designs
5. Some photography and art of mine
6. General other geeky things that I would like to share
Better get cracking then! Wish me luck!
