As I have been a contractor for 3 years, but operating more independently now from companies, I felt the need to upgrade my marketing game! I had a logo designed and just launched a separate website for my company!
For logo design I can recommend 48hourslogo.com. You can start a contest there where graphic designers send in proposals. I got more than 100! After some tweaking above you can see the result!
I played around to build a WordPress site like this one, but I decided I only needed a one page landing at the moment. I want to keep my blog here since I think the Bitstream has a small reputation now and I do not want to migrate everything and keep multiple blog sites. Keep it simple… Which WP is definitively not! I had a layout in mind with a menu that sticks to the top, but I could not find a simple, good template. I am also getting paranoid about things like Jetpack collecting user data and using data when I don’t want that!
Browsing the Mac app store I came across Sparkle. A lot of good reviews, reasonable in price and they claim to be the successor to iWeb! And made in Europe! Now that resonates with me. I had a lot of fun with iWeb and never understood why Apple discontinued the product. OK it is Mac-dependant, but my site took me less than 2 days…
Have a look at futurica.be and let me know what you think! I also published there a mind map I am using at the moment to track new tech I am interested in! And if you want to talk business let me know!
