Rolling On [Puns Inside]
It's been a while since I last posted, a lot has happened so I think it's time for an update! A move, a job, a friend's site launch and my upcoming redesign. Roll on for the full story
Moved Out, Rolling OnSome akamike frequenters will know that I have not only moved out, but moved in with my girlfriend, Sasha, and her parents. This has been a major turning point in my life, and I am so happy! Since moving, I have settled in, been to a Bonfire Night party (photos), got a job (see below) and bought a new coat. Both Sasha and I are very happy, it's been a good year and a half, living very far apart, but now we are together and here's to many years to come ;)
Rolled LimitedI am no longer just "Mike", I am now:
Yes, I have been hired by the excellent Rolled Limited team, lead by Jamie Huskisson. Work has been good so far, working from home, though I haven't had any major projects to work on apart from in-house work, however I will be sure to share news of exciting projects here. Rolled Limited has worked with some great clients, such as Mark Boulton and Antonio Gould, and our team is awesome:
- Jay Huskisson - Founder, Project Manager and Lead Developer
- Kieran Allen - PHP Developer
- Julian Targowski - Lead Designer
- David Myers - Designer
- Mike Robinson - Oh, this is me. Well, I'm a Wordpress Developer and coffee boy!
If you need a web solution, get in touch with either Jay or myself. Stayed tuned for the launch of Sausage Roll (blog) and the new Rolled Limited main site.
Rolled outThe new TeaPlusPlus design was launched, for my friend Adam (Dicko). I was experimenting with a new (to me) style while designing this, after having the idea in my head for a long time, and I am quite pleased with the result. Notice the Adam-filled cup at the top, with the used teabags at the end. The design was marked up and Wordpress was used as the blogging platform, due to Dicko's old blog being on wordpress.com and the fact that Wordpress is just awesome. Dicko blogs about his life, music, and spiders.
Pre-RollThe akamike re-design has been going quite well, and since there has been a complete halt of updates on the blog, I thought I would give a sneak peak of the upcoming design! It's still got quite a bit of work left, but I think it's looking awesome already.
I am still working away on it and accepting any ideas, so have a look and let me know what you think in the comments :)
Did you enjoy the new-work related puns? You could say I was....on a roll.
I am so fired for that :(
