Timothy Hudson [webconstructions]
What is your specialty?
Where can we view your portfolio online?
What made you interested in design?
Reading a book on web design.
How would you define your design style?
Anything that has to do with web design/development.
How do you promote and move your work?
Web SEO, which I also provide for my clients.
In which new areas would you like to experiment?
Working with a flash website (I have worked with flash before, but never for an entire website).
Shapes, color, concept: where do you usually begin when conceiving a design?
Generally, I guess I try to visualize the layout of the website. Then, I think of the background color and go from there!
What are your sources for documentation and to generate ideas?
Well, I always try to pay close attention to any website I visit; this gives me new ideas for more designs!
What is your favourite type of customer?
I have only worked with churches and small businesses, I enjoy working with these people, but I would like to try working with large companies in the future.
To a certain point, is copying justifiable?
No, I don't think so. But, I do not think it wrong to get ideas from other sites and use some things you see in your designs. However, copying entire websites/templates/logos, I think, is wrong.
List some things you dislike seeing in design.
I don't like seeing some corners of boxes/images in a website rounded while others' boxes/images aren't. I don't like seeing red/orange together in a design. I also dislike seeing websites that are merely one image with link maps.
Do you believe the newer generations are better at designing?
Well, maybe not at designing, but probably at making a website function right.
Which software applications do you most utilize in your work?
Adobe Dreamweaver cs4, The Print Shop 21, and MotionArtist 3.0
Can you see yourself in this field twenty years from now?
