If you were around this past Wednesday, you may have seen my first exciting teaser for all of the goodness that is about to hit www.maddierichardson.com next month. For the past two months I have been planning and creating a new website, that more closely integrates my blog and design shop. I currently have my portfolio available, but I have been a bit hesitant to take on more design work, so that piece of my website and blog have been pretty dormant over the past 6 months, by choice.
However, over the past month or two, this beautiful thing started happening... I started missing my design work! I actually was bummed to not have emails coming in from happy clients, deadlines to get my artwork in, a lineup of blogs to dream up... It was so refreshing to find that my heart and soul actually enjoy this work... A lot.
So... I got to working on an updated site, and planning out the coming months to get back to work. It has been refreshing, to say the least... And today, you are getting the tiniest little teaser of the new website and blog. Yay!!
Since we received the Dell Insperion 2 in 1 Convertible Touchscreen Laptop, I have been excited to try it out with some of my design work. Mostly because it is so compact, so it is super easy to pop in my purse and use at the dog park, coffee shop, or any other place I find I have an hour or two do dive into my work. So, if Burley isn't busy using it for himself, I will snag it and pack it up to go!
I have done a lot of work on the new site using this laptop, even connecting my tablet & stylus to it, to create and tweak my new logo! Yes... That's right! Super user friendly and intuitive to get my stylus working to either draw or browse. This has been one of my favorite perks by far.
The resolution and quality of the screen has made it really enjoyable to see all of the hard work on the new site come to life!! It's like seeing a piece of your own art hung in a gorgeous gallery (or I guess I imagine this is how it might feel, considering I have never actually had this happen to me before...)
... It makes all of the hard work and long hours reeeeeally worth it.
Here are a few more photos of the 2 in 1 laptop in action, as well as some sneak peeks at the new site, to be released mid-October!!
