What do you do?
I provide advice and insight to technical professionals in the Media and Entertainment industry. I do this by providing my perspective on current topics (blog and podcast), analysis of the larger scale issues (white papers and reports) and hands on instruction (technical walkthroughs and samples).
Do you have a desired website screen size?
I want the site designed for 1024x768. It should have a fixed width design with the main content area centered in the page. There should be a background that fills the spaces to the left and right. It would be great if that background could be dynamic in some way.
How many pages (maximum of 5) do you need designed?
I need five pages designed Home page, Bio/About me, Projects/How To, Blog/Podcast, Articles
What is your industry?
I focus on the cross sections of Media and Entertainment, Communications (Telco, Cable) and Technology (software development).
Describe the target audience for your website design
I target media and entertainment professionals who work in either a technical role (developer, IT professional, executive) or are interested in how technology affects the media and entertainment industry.
What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your website design
1.A sense that I understand the future of technology in the industry
2.That I am a big thinker and that these are complex ideas made simple
3.That I am creative not only in style but in the solutions I propose.
How is your company different from your competitors?
Most people focus on the issues of yesterday and how they effect today. I focus on the issues that are yet to be and show people the way to them or around them, whichever is of most benefit. I can cut through the noise and help industry professionals better understand the real issues driving technology decisions. I understand the direction to best take not just through intellect, but through creativity. I think big and am not afraid to be idealistic which helps me better explain the larger social impact of technology in the industry which ultimately drives all choices.
Style and Concept

I like big, bold clean sites with a touch of realism. Big type, Big pictures, clean but not too crisp. I dont want a boring blog. I want every post to be like a magazine article.
What colors do you want to see in your website design?
I am open to either a light palette or dark but I want the colors to be only a few. 2-3 colors at most in th overall style. I prefer dark but the site has to be readable. Again, big bold clean, not crisp with a sense of the future. The future is shiny but it still gets dirty.
What colors do you NOT want to see in your website design?
No fluorescent or extreme colors. I am not a fan of yellow.
What adjectives should best describe your website design?
Big, Bold, futuristic with a hint of rock and roll grunge. Like wired meets the sex pistols but easy to read and navigate.
What content must be included in the website design?
There should be a consistent masthead that has my name. Please pick a font that compliments your web design. I need to see the page greeked so I can see how the entries layout on the page.
