Its my birthday its my birthday !!! oh wait no its not Its my nephews birthday and he’s a big 1 today. He’s my godson and its times like this that make me homesick.
I’ve lost a client … well no not lost a client … the Galway City Council put the St. Patricks Galway website out for tender and well Impact Media came in and got the contract. They are a large marketing / media company based in Oranmore I believe where I’m from so not surprising for an event such as the Paddys day festival to choose them. It stings a bit losing it but it has been a fun few years being involved with it … making updates … finding out beforehand things that were going to be happening and hanging out with some of the great visitors but such is life.
Here is last years St. Patrick’s Galway logo I designed. It altered only slightly from the original one I created.
It was used in hoodies / branding and so on (its always nice as a mostly webdesign / online graphics guy to see your work in print) ah well best of luck to the Festival and its Organisers. ( I met my best french friend and witness at my civil ceremony Maiwenn during one of the festivals when they were over as part of the twinning for Galway Lorient.
In other news I launched this blog :) and so far the comments have been positive which I’m very happy about. I’ve launched Devine Building as well.
I love my new website
I received that comment in an email from them and it gives me a good tingly feeling
I’ve also been working on various graphics for blacknight which you can see over on blog.blacknight.com. Its based on a design they had in a Sunday paper.
On top of this Dropped.ie got some new Semantic domain searchy goodness which was fun to do and implement.
All in all a good week lots more done … setting up the new office. Playing IT support for Ze Missus and her new venture as FR Translations and to top it all off it’s been a week of almost no twitter what so ever :)
My camera is back up and running with its new charger and hence you’re probably seeing so many pictures on this blog that I’ve taken.
Happy Weekend :)
