Greetings! I'm Hen (charmed, I'm sure) and this is my corner... of the web (I swear that was funnier in high school - ok, maybe not). In any case, I'm a digital designer who specializes in web/UI design and dabbles in online advertising/illustration.
September 24th, 2011 - 'To Press... or not to Press'
As I was helping a friend prepare a blog space for his 1 year volunteer stint in Israel, I started to become more aware of just how many people have started to rely on Wordpress and its subsequent themes for their actual websites. Having not participated in the blog scene since the glory days of Livejournal, it makes me wonder if transitioning to a framework such as that would be more beneficial. Hmm... maybe next year.
August 15th, 2011 - 'Achievement Unlocked'
Starstruck Dance Studio is readying itself for its third season. By request of the studio director, a complete site refresh was to coincide with the achievement, which you can find here. If you are in the area, you really should check them out. Phenomenal little crew they got going on there. (And no, I didn't get paid to say that.)
July 18th, 2011 - 'Of New Beginnings and Shiny Things'
After a month of arguing with domain services and applying liberal use of a defibrillator, Hen's Corner is finally off life support. Even now, I'm not sure why I went to so much trouble to retrieve it after such a long time (4 years), but there's just something about it that I can't let go of. Perhaps it's the nostalgia of being the first site I ever designed back in high school. Perhaps it's unfinished business. Or maybe, just maybe, it's simply because of the comfort of working with something old and familiar.
Either way, it's back, shiny, and blue. Very blue. Did I ever tell you how much I like blue?
