With Winter usually comes more time to do design, go through the pictures of summer and spend a little more time inside doing design and staying warm, but first the fall with beautiful days of riding and color on the trees.
A lot of the design I do this time of year reflects fall colors and the outdoors, which is nice because the downside to my full time design job is that I don't have a window to see outside.
Deciding to return to doing websites involved a lot of soul searching. I got out of it because small businesses couldn't afford what they really wanted and I didn't want clients to have to settle. Now with all the new template options etc - clients can have top end designs at lower prices and I can do a lot more for the money. Also the most requested item - shopping carts have become more affordable while at the same time being easier to use and set up.
