Number Four

So I awoke this morning to find that my portfolio site is number four on DesignCharts.  This I can only describe as rad.  I never thought it would get on there, so I am rather chuffed.  I will treasure...

Somewhat depressing site

A site I designed last week, which the client didn't like.  I like it though, and was rather chuffed with it.  I think it's definitely one of the better designs I've done, seeing as it's not really my forte......

Happiness

Did a few style screens the other day for some ol' diet program bollocks.  Did two styles for the client to pick from, they didn't pick these.But choose the boring stock standard ones instead.Fitz.
