Concept designs have arrived!

One of the most asked questions when running through a digital project is "What will it look like?" which is usually followed by a statement such as "I know a few things about design, i'd be happy to help you..."

The presentation of new designs can be an exciting time in the project but requires close management on what happens with the feedback given. All comments are valid but there needs to be an assessment of the impact suggestions can have and how they might impact on the overall business requirements. I have just taken delivery of the new concepts designs for the website from Squiz's Head of Design Matt and they look amazing! Although I have my preference over which design I prefer I now need to keep a neutral hat on whilst showcasing the designs to all stakeholders.

So for the next two weeks I will be collecting feedback, collating suggestions and starting to draw out the comments that keep cropping up. This should give me a good understanding of any potential issues and then how to rectify them. Ultimately there will need to be a decision on what not to action...

So, a significant step in the project that all stakeholders can participate in, is that a good or a bad thing!

I'm famous! Well, sort of...

Eight months after the Google Street View trike visited my old work the images are up and running on Google Maps.

What I hadn't realised was that I would have a starring role at all three locations... Here I am loitering at the Luton campus:

But, can you complete the game of "Where's Kris" and find me at the Putteridge Bury and Bedford campuses!

Happy New Year!

A very quick post to say Happy New Year! 2012 has been a fantastic year with a website launch, a new job and a new project under my belt.

However, 2013 looks as though it will prove to be even better, 6 months to go with the new website project and then a few more potential projects to follow.

Exciting times ahead!
