Believe you can and you’re halfway there- Theodore Roosevelt
Michael Irwin is starting his own construction business, called Upright Builders. Michael decided to approach our Computer Animation and Web Design (CAWD) program and ask us if we could help with his website. Alex Goodman and I happily agreed and began working on his website and logo. Alex was in charge of graphic design aspects, whereas I worked on the more technical side of things, by building a Wordpress theme.
The Upright Builders website represents how I can adapt to new situations quickly and efficiently. This project is also a great example of real-life client work. Above all, I am pleased with how the site came out and enjoy the overall design. Throughout this project, I learned the ins and outs of Wordpress, as well as how to talk to clients and ask for their input. I would show the client some design ideas, and ask for his input, rather than building something that only I enjoyed.
Overall, I’m very happy with this project. Believing in myself helped me through the journey, and fulfilling the clients need came easy with my prior coding experience. I found it was important to keep believing in myself, even when I was struggling with the technical details of Wordpress. This project gave me real world experience which will help me later in life when it comes to talking with clients and fulfilling requests.
