Glad to find this thread! I'm relatively new to these forums, though I've been lurking for a long time. As a graphic designer, I sort of became obsessed with the Christopher Deam redesigns ( back irn 95?) and dreamt about having my own ever since. We just bought an '08 Sig Series 27FB and will be going full-time in a few months.
I'm a graphic designer and web developer. I've been designing and art directing for print for over ten years and first got into web design about five years ago, and from there into web development. I've been freelancing for a little over two years now and, as the bulk of my projects are web, have been finding that I actually enjoy the development side a bit more than the design, though I like having the right-left brain balance of both.
In terms of technologies, I mostly work in XHTML 1 Strict (am just building up the guts to start in with HTML5), CSS2/3, PHP and jQuery. I also do a lot of projects in Drupal and Wordpress. I do NO Flash (aside from little movies or slideshows, though those can normally be handled with jQuery). Aside from my issues with it in terms of SEO and accessibility, I just find it frustrating to work with.
My business is Studio Aluminum
. I haven't updated in a while. But my business name has everything to do with the fact that I've always planned to work out of an Airstream!
