Corrupting Young Minds

Today I spoke to an undergraduate design class at my Alma mater Northeastern University in Boston. My friend Mark Wooding teaches a class at night to Junior level design students. This was my second appearance in his class via video conference. Our conversation was centered around the ups and downs of life as freelance designer. I tried to offer a series of tips to make life easier for aspiring freelancers. It seemed to be well received and this time around I was able to keep it much more succinct.

Although I don’t profess to be a seasoned design lecturer, I would certainly entertain other speaking engagements in the future. Please contact me if I might be of service.

    Today we launched the new site for Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Jackson has a well-deserved reputation as an extreme skiers paradise. But they also need to appeal to a wider international audience of mixed abilities. So the site serves as a branding platform with enhanced copy points and bold imagery. At the same time, the hard-core local elite skiers can quickly access daily conditions and updates from anywhere.

    The design overhaul is bold and graphically rich. The nav is cleaner and more usable while the site architecture is streamlined for ease of use and SEO. The home page has a javascript slideshow, a tabbed media container, and an interactive promotional area. All pages have the daily snow report statistics in the header and a macro footer with handy links.
