#1 Short life update:
It’s been more than a while since I’ve added anything new but I assure you it’s only because I’ve been extremely busy. Last March I started working full day@Affecto. I also had quite a long lasting project (the title of this post) I’ve been working on my “free time”. Not that I would have done all of it free no. I’ve just been using most of my free time working and now that I think of it I guess I’ve been almost only working for the past half a year.
I’ve now been taking it easy for almost a month and I can assure you it feels good. I believe in working hard but you shouldn’t forget to rest once in a while. Working too hard starts sucking all the fun & joy out of your work and thus slowly even the smallest things start to feel owerwhelmingly laborsome. The last thing you want is that work starts to feel like work.
#2 The title promised content
So, as I din’t want to make an extra post just for a short update on my life I’ve prepended it to this post that very shortly talks about the Good Sport project I’ve been a part of.
Good Sport is a small Finnish company run by three certified ice hockey agents. Their old logo and web page looked *quite* outdated so they came to a deal with Bond to freshen up their look & identity. My part was to develop the site with the help of Roope and the designers at Bond.
Let’s cut straight to the things I have to say about the project from my point of view. Before reading the rest of my thoughts, just know that the project is live and can be found at goodsport.fi.
Most importantly I learned a ton of things, became better at many of those and got a reminder how much I still have to learn (not that I’d know enough at any point in life). When you are in a web profession you can’t stop. There’s dozens of new things coming out every week at an inconsistent phase. This is a very interesting time. It’s cool to see the whole #webdev & #webdesign field expand at such a speed. It’s a shame though that now matter how hard you try you probably can’t learn or even read all the new things. My suggestion is to pick a few that are interesting ones from your point of view and focus on those.
