Welcome to SethHorn.com v2.0

Well, here it is! After several hours of redesign, and a couple sleepless nights toward the end, I am proud to launch my new website. I will be using the new site to showcase my portfolio of web design and web development work. I will also use it as a platform to discuss technology, tech and internet trends, movies, music, entertainment and my own personal opinions. Read on below for a list of my immediate plans for the new and improved SethHorn.com.

Seth Horn Interactive Web Design

Because I fancy my own signature, I have decided to use it as my own personal logo. The organic lines add a nice bit of contrast to the site.

As you can tell, right now the site is fairly barren. That is because I have 2 majors tasks to complete now that the site has been completely developed.

Task 1: Fill out the site with content.

That is a fairly obvious task, and one that will be completed over the next 7 – 10 days. I will be adding several portfolio entries for both personal and professional projects, and each entry will contain a case study. I will begin with some of my earlier work and finish up with a detailed case study on my redesign for this website. The portfolio entries will be:

In addition to portfolio entries, I also plan to keep the site up to date with discussions on technology, internet trends, movies, music, entertainment as well as my own opinions.

Task 2: Keep developing this website.

Now this is actually something that I never want to stop. But I do have a list of short-term and long-term goals for this site. It will never be “done” as far as I am concerned.

Short-term goals:

  • Add a 404 page. If you know what a 404 page is, don’t get cocky and purposefully get lost. If you don’t know what a 404 page is, then just carry on.
  • Integrate social media – Facebook, (more) Twitter and LinkedIn.
  • Validate all my code. Unfortunately it doesn’t validate yet, and that makes me sad.
  • Clean up the back end. I want to comment all my code and publish my source as part of this site’s case study.

Long-term goals:

  • Integrate some jQuery animations. JQuery is all the rage right now, and I am nothing if not a fan of subtle animations to liven a motionless website.
  • Add mobile support to the site. If you are looking at this on an iPhone like I am right now, I sure bet you wish I had a solid handheld.css on hand.
