When I am designing a site, I become immersed in the process and barely come up for air until everything is JUST as I want it to be. With this particular site, that meant hours of scanning artwork and getting the right images in the right spots. She has also written a devotional book, which integrates her artwork interspersed with some of her inspirational writing, that I included on its own page.
I absolutely love the design process and the immersive nature of tweaking and coding and tweaking and coding, in order to get everything to behave just as I want it to. This requires patience with the structures that I must work within, as well as knowledge of how to tweak those structures to get the look and feel that I want. It is always a challenge, but that is where my design juices and determination come to life. Launching a new site is always exciting, and it is especially rewarding when the client is so thrilled with the result.
Now that I am up for air, I will be visiting in your neighborhoods! :)
