My first client!

And so it begins…

My next big step in the journey towards being a Web Designer happened this week, I successfully obtained my first official client! (On a volunteer basis)

Ok, so I’m not yet being paid to make and remodel business and community websites with the trademark aesthetic that has made me famous the world over… Yet! But I have secured a job volunteering my growing expertise and skills redesigning the website for Pride March Victoria.

If you haven’t heard about them they are a community based organisation that is part of the International Pride association running pride marches and queer celebrations world wide.  Every Summer the finest in Victorian queer culture proudly marches in St Kilda to show that we are here, we are queer and we’re proud about it.  I’m so honoured to be given the opportunity to work with such a fantastic organisation and one that promotes such a fantastic message.

So, bring on the wireframing, drafting and consultation I’m ready to jump head first into my first ‘real’ re-design job! I know it will be an amazing experience that will make me a better person and designer.  Watch this space for updates!

About sarab2222

Driven by curiosity, creativity and my innate nerdiness, a little over a year ago I dipped my toe into the world of everything web design. With no experience, no formal training and no idea what I was doing I sweated, swore and furrowed over the creation of my first website built from scratch with no templates or guidance to light the way. It was the most frustrating and exhilarating experince watching it come together piece by piece, code by code. Since those innocent beginnings I've dived head first into a Bachelors of Internet Communication with a major in Web Design, I'm devouring tutorials, reading everything I can find to light my way and finding a community of the most creative nerds in the world. So this blog is my way of documenting my journey from wet behind the ears newbie to experienced professional, a place to consolidate and share what I'm learning, display my work and help others at the start of this journey find their way.
