I am proud to announce a new website for my web design and consulting business. I call it CityBlogz Design Studio. I had originally registered that domain to be a blog portal for local metros, but that was before I found out that there are already many websites that do that. i.e. TheGothamist. So basically, I resigned to using the domain name for my web design business. I am especially proud that the CityBlogz website was designed with accessibility and web standards in mind. I tried to make the website as “bulletproof” as possible. “Bulletproof” is a term Dan Cederholm coins that describes:
design techniques that embrace flexibility — allowing for varying text size or content amounts. Also ensuring that web designs accounted for worst-case scenarios: preparing for a variety of situations, where the imporant parts of the page were adaptable — maintaining maximum readability and accessibility. At the same time, these techniques could still allow designs to be compelling. We could create cool web sites, while at the same time inject flexibility that helps them reach the widest audience possible.
I have also been busy working with the local non-profit organization called R.I.A. (Rochester International Association) . They have recruited me to redesign their old website and bring it to the modern age of web standards.
