New year, new portfolio

web-design-portfolioWhat better way to make a fresh start in the new year than to freshen up my website. I have been so busy with clients that I haven't had a chance to do it in a while, but I set aside the afternoon today and created a new Portfolio page to highlight some of my web design projects. Although design is not the only thing that I do, it's one of the things I seem to be doing a lot of lately, and it's nice to group everything all into one place. Creating the page made me realise that I designed, built and launched 12 websites in 2009, which averages out to around 1 per month. I reckon that's pretty good going for a one-woman band, especially as I also had plenty of other non-design projects and photography work in the mix. Funny how the changing of the calendar makes you take stock of life and reflect on how things are going. It's good to have some kind of external force urging us to do so, because it's not something us humans tend to do enough. I think it's best summed up in the words of the immortal John Hughes, who sadly left us in 2009:
