On Thursday 9th June I sat my last exam at Cambridge University, and potentially my last exam ever (unless I decide to get some really useful and well-respected additional qualifications). I have, of course, spent the time between then and now celebrating – finding out in the process that Lemsip is a fantastic hangover cure.
So what to do now? You may or may not remember a previous post in which I detailed four things I needed to do: I think I can safely say that I’ve completed goals 1–3 (although we shall have to wait and see whether the First is in the bag) and now I just have Goal 4 to do: redesigning this site. This brings me to my comment-encouragement question: how do people go about their designs? As you might have noticed, my designs tend to be fairly basic in nature, and I know there are a fair number of talented designers who read this site, so I’m going to commence brain-picking: do you tend to start with pencil-and-paper sketches, a prototype in the image software of your choice or just an idea in your head? Do you start with a basic layout and tweak it or plan all the measurements right from the start?
(P.S. San Andreas is out – it’s rather good.)
