Luke Hoehn's Design Blog

News and info about what I'm programming and designing.

A couple days ago (September 7th), I uploaded the second basic mock up to my website. So far, I am averaging about one a week, which isn’t that bad. There is plenty of exposition on the home site, linked here.

Mock Up for a Fake Law Firm

I don’t have much more to say other than what I already said. Seems repetitive. More to come soon.

One way to get better at something is to do it. The more you do it, the better you get at it. Simple. Stupid. True.

I took this to mean that if I want to learn more about web design and programming, I better start designing some webs, or, at the very least, I should make some functional and ascetically pleasing websites. The way I have been going about this is by creating mock up or dummy websites for fictional businesses with varying web technologies. Each fake business will have a simple website (HTML, XTHML, and CSS2), a more complex website (SEO, DHTML with CSS, PHP, and Javascript), a cutting edge website (CSS3 and HTML5), and maybe mobile, Flash, and print media as accompanying marketing materials.

The first web site I have uploaded is a mock up for the Bear and Blanket Bed and Breakfast. Found here. It’s a simple four page site that will serve as a foundation for the next mock up in that series.

Also, I updated the website with a twitter feed and loads of new copy. Check it out here. In the meantime, I must code and proofread. Oh lord, I must proofread.

There are certain things that I would like to say on my portfolio site that I don’t believe should actually be on my portfolio site. Mostly, what I am doing on my portfolio site.

Wait. What?

I am using this blog as a a way to talk about updates and news for my personal website and coding projects as well as a way to learn more about web development in the WordPress framework. Not much more to say  on that front.

The next point is that this last I removed the Internet Explorer/CSS2 compatible part of my website. It’s working, more or less, on one style sheet that incorporates CSS3. Also, I am in the process of moving over all the files from my soon to be deactivated student directory to my home site. The logo is something I came up with on the fly and hope to change in the future. In the meantime, I am working on PHP updates to the site to try to create a login system, page counter, and form processing.

Nothing more to say other than it’s time to stop blogging, and time to get back to coding.
