I’m proud to announce the completion of my friend Emily’s new photography portfolio. I’m really please with the way it turned out. It was a smooth project to work on, the only goals were that it were clean and simple to use, and that it look better than all of her friend’s photgraphy sites ;). Done and done.
The only snag that came up was near the end of the project when I upgraded to the newest version of SlideShowPro. The old param.xml file no longer worked so I had to compare the new version’s attributes to the old and port back all the old styles. A frustrating couple hours for sure.

Everybody needs a website. Everybody, even best friends/copywriters.
When you have a particular skill set you will find yourself using those skills over and over for friends and family, for free. Such was the case when my buddy Matt decided to get on the Internet and showcase his advertising work.
To keep things ultra simple I went with a one page layout with a dash of jQuery thrown in for some smooth scrolling between the sections. JW Player provides the playback controls for all the multimedia, keeping updates simple to the XML. I think the single page layout is really straightforward and effective for a résumé-type site and it lets his personality shine through.
