If I could only get paid for this...

I could probably buy a bright shiny new game book! My web-dev skills are so very 1994.

Mom's project got a teensy bit more complicated, web-wise. Originally I had one page that represented "trendy coffee shop" and "slightly stodgy, mostly sophisticated nonprofit blanket organization." I'm having to pull them apart now into two seperate concepts--which will make the concepts a lot cleaner and more intuitive, I think, but I'm having to juggle a few different looks and feels.

I'm probably sticking with the semi-ipod look for the coffee shop, white and sort of floaty-abstract. Here's the current mockup for the new NPO's page I'm kind of pleased with it. It's stark, but the images all mouse-over with some color, so it's stark-but-warm. At least when the mouseovers work. Enigmatically, some of them don't. *shrugs* We do not pretend to understand these things. Mostly, we understand hyenas, and custard.

Both of these pages are very rough-draft...I need to totally redo the photography on the white pages to make them sharper. Which means re-doing the graphics on the mugs, but that's okay. Except one of them shattered when I put coffee in it the other day. So, goodbye mug. Have to find a new one of those.

Do the webpages continue to retain a structure at all like what you envisioned here?

I really have no idea. They really hated my brochures and don't at all like the look I've built for the web pages...I may start digging my heels in though. I've worked hard on them, and unless they suggest something really great...mind, this is a fairly well-known advertising group. I don't know what the right answer is, really, but I'm going to feel very abused if mom and guy say I need to undo my work.

Heh, there's the underhanded method of retaining your own basic structure, taking whatever clever ideas or graphics the professionals create, and nonetheless bragging about how a marketing group volunteered to do your site whenever the topic comes up in fundraising. (Since, admittedly, Patty can't make the fact that her son did the webpage into a selling point.)
