How Does Bad Design Affect Your Business?

Damages your credibility: If you are a serious business, but your website is crowded with animation, stock photography, and other virtual clutter, you are not sending a professional message.

Make you look out of touch: A website you do not update frequently does more than hurt your SEO. A dated website tells your customers you are behind the technological times, or worse that you do not care enough to keep updated.

Costs you customers: Every time a customer navigates away in frustration – because of broken links, complex forms, or too much navigation – it is unlikely you will see them again. If your competitor offers the same services in an intuitive website design, your loss is their gain.

Busy, Living Life.

Ok. so i completely dropped the ball on the may reboot thing.. FAIL. i thought that going to tokyo would free up time.. but it was the complete opposite. in a good way. came back and things are still jammed. in a good way. i haven’t been able to post up new works in more than two years. this is not good for the site but im ok with it since life takes priority. i guess i will get around to it when i need work. i am also spending a lot of time in my hobbies as well. just wanted to post here and tell you that i am trying. but i am having fun with life at the moment.

RIP to my great friend. Chris Garcia – ALL BLOCKS COVERED. because of your passing and your ability to live life to the fullest, i aim to get myself more motivated in things that will make me happy and free. although i really wish you didnt leave us this way. too many friends and loved ones affected. we had so much ahead of our new projects together. this is a tough loss for me. i hope your legacy will live on forever. if theres anyway to continue the things we set in motion please send over your light and energy. rest easy my friend. ill see you later.

RIP adam
RIP dilla
RIP gark
RIP kendal
RIP pepper
RIP terry

A look back at westfield brand studio

this was a nice place to work at until someone came around to ruin the vibe. mostly enjoyed the view up on the 52nd floor. they had nice perks and amenities. the courtyard always had lots of good looking people around. shout out to caa and some friends and artists i ran into over there. fun times at happy hour friday’s. good people. good $. good experience.

i created a clean desktop for my secondary monitor that i always have connected to my macbook. i use a thunderbolt to hdmi cable straight into my 1080p 52″ flat screen tv. i enjoy my workstation set up a lot. just wanted to see the year at a glance clean and minimal. nothing crazy. i also created them in different colors for whatever mood you’re in. head over to the download page and help yourself.

super slow holidays

always really slow during the holidays in freelance universe. and then it usually doesn’t even pick back up till march.. after new years it takes a bit of time for budgets to get worked out and get back into the grind of things. but it will be the 10 year anniversary for TURBO GRAFFIX and i would like to in some way commemorate or celebrate in some manner. i will probably do another re-haul of this sites portfolio content. thinking of offering celebratory prices on wordpress websites for friends and family – referrals only.

damn… 10 years.. freelance.. with off and on fulltime gigs.

being able to touch a lot of ideas in its birth / start up phase and now seeing how far they’ve gotten. yea.. might have to do some re-cap case studies on those in 2016.

not sure what this entry provided you as a reader but for me it was just to say something to keep this place alive. …

i will be in tokyo for the entire month of april. hopefully planets can align for me out there.

see u soon.
