New sort-of-site

June 17th, 2013

aderowbotham.com.2013

Having left my big important position of responsibility in London I still need to take stock of all the work that I’m proud of from the past few years and put it together as a new portfolio. However, I’ve been pretty much flat out since the day I left Pirata, and I’m currently juggling three projects among other things, so it’s going to be a little while yet. It’s a truism that your own website can be the hardest thing to get round to when paid work is vying for your time.

I bought a new laptop the other day and it has one of those ultra-high-resolution displays. It’s a lovely bit of kit but (as is well documented) old software and old websites now look terrible on it, the graphics being either pixellated or blurred as they’re scaled up. The newest of my personal sites was created in 2007, and looked particularly outdated on the new laptop so I decided that – at the very least – aderowbotham.com needed a quick and dirty makeover.

The old site was just the front and back of my business card from 2007:
aderowbotham.com.2008

The new site doesn’t contain a whole lot more, but here are some of its key features:

  • Pretentious introductory ‘mission statement’ (in lieu of having some actual work to show)
  • Works on mobile (obv.)
  • Big silly tooltips
  • Shows off a few of my best photographs in high resolution
  • Some technical stuff that means it’s quick

Anyway, not much to see really. This post is mostly for myself, Google and of course The NSA. My website is at http://aderowbotham.com.

Next-up: a new CV.
