Those of you who have ever visited my website, will have noticed that it’s designed in cartoon style. This not only resonates with my company name, it also brings across part of my viewpoint in doing business: Have fun working whenever you can, but be serious about what you deliver.
While reviewing the initial artworks for the website, we got the idea to situate the experience around the person viewing the website. Within the general artwork concept, we could personalize day or night, weather and time.
We tried to implement it, but it turned out not to be that easy. Somebody then said: “It cannot be done.” That’s when my fire was lit. I decided then and there that it would be done, no matter what!
In these days of technological advance, it grinds my gears if something natural to conceive “cannot be done”. I mean, within a couple of days, it will be 50 years since Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon, and I cannot have a website that reflects day or night, rain or shine and time? You have got to be joking. I feel the same way when the parking payment terminal returns my bar code ticket and tells me to insert it the other way around. Seriously, should a $ 17.000 machine be that picky?
So here we are. Day or night has been on the site from the start. We recently added the weather and a nice analog clock. Have look at my website and then look out your window. Look at the “Articles” page, then look at your watch. Technology should be that obvious!
