IMS website complete!

This has been the wackiest, most disappointing, scariest, most productive and most exhilarating week of my life!  It’s weird how one week can encompass so many vastly different states and feelings, but looking back, I really feel it can.

I won’t linger on the negatives.  I’m not much in a mood to whine or complain about crap.  Right now I’m in the exhilarating part. website screenshotMy most recent client just called me to tell me how happy he is with his website which we just soft launched:

I’ve been working on this site for more than a month, and it was a biggie.  It was the first site I’ve done for a client who did not start out as my friend.  he was referred to me through a friend, but before he needed a site, we didn’t know each other.  I worked mostly with his graphic designer, who I only know through phone conversations and dozens of emails, but who turned out to be a wonderful partner on this project.  Her attention to design detail paired well with my understanding of how a website should be put together.

So we have a few links to add, but I’ve tested and retested in different browsers.  I even went so far as to add code that will detect a user in IE6 and prompt them to upgrade their browser, because the site looks much better in Firefox and IE7.

Anyway, my client is “ecstatic.”  I’m thrilled that it looks as good as it does, and I can’t wait to add it to my online portfolio.  I’m also glad I have a couple of days to breather before we start talking about future site maintenance and I meet with a new client.
