I'm rebuilding this site right now. So a lot of things may look broken. But what better motivation for me to finish it?

First (Certainly Not Last) Experience Creating Custom Icon Fonts

I try to use the most flexible formats as I can in my work. That means spending a little more time up-front creating assets that are scalable and editable, so I don’t need to recreate the wheel every time a size changes or we need a hover state for something. Sometimes that means extra CSS. First (Certainly Not Last) Experience Creating Custom Icon Fonts

Frank Chimero’s New Website and Owning Your Content

Before reading, go check out frankchimero.com. I won’t feel bad if you don’t come back. It doesn’t have his portfolio there yet. But it has so much else to explore that explains his process and influences. It’s got a few elements I’ve toyed with on this site, like links and quotes. But I love the Frank Chimero’s New Website and Owning Your Content

Oklahoma Rock

OklahomaRock.com just got a major upgrade thanks to Ty of iThemes Creative Services. Ty did all the site design and development, and I helped out with a new logo. I’ve kept up with OklahomaRock.com for a long time on their old site. So it’s awesome to see their new site with a lot of awesome Oklahoma Rock

The Redesign of iThemes.com

I’ve worked for iThemes since January 2010. Since I started working here, I’ve been making updates to our site – designing sidebar ads, new sales pages, adding custom post types for our content and products, and making little tweaks everywhere. But after 2 years of piling more and more into the old theme, we knew The Redesign of iThemes.com

Go Far Together

My boss always quotes an ancient Chinese proverb: If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. It’s been one of our core values at iThemes. We all do greater work together than any of us could do alone. Update: We made this our customer focus for 2014. Go Far Together

Home Office

Finally got around to putting up some a couple prints and letters in my home office. Desk and chair from IKEA. Chalkboard is from a garage sale and is 90 years old. Letters are from an antique dealer in OKC. I also have an L, but you can’t see it in this picture. Sorry the Home Office

Proverbs 11:2

Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. Just a passage I’ve been reading lately. Watched the Rob Bell interview last night and began questioning how much I know for sure about what I say I believe with certainty. I’d rather be unsure and admit it than act like I know something that’s impossible Proverbs 11:2

September Mix

No fancy, existential title this time. No mystical underpinnings. Just a mix full of music I’ve been enjoying this summer and in the past few weeks. I was afraid that if I didn’t actually sit down and make a mix, some of the more summery songs on this one would never make it onto a September Mix

April? Mix

Thanks to the whining of Matt Danner, here’s another monthly mix. This month’s theme is uncertainty and questions. Specifically about God. I am a Christian. I have been in a Christian family my entire life. But I never want to pretend I have things figured out. The more I learn, the less I know. So, April? Mix

U-too: Union Annex

The OSU Student Union is getting a major remodel over the next year. Over the summer (and probably a while after that), the largest student union in the world  is going to be under construction. So while they work, the dining and retail part of the Union first floor will be moved into 18 temporary U-too: Union Annex
