How and when to use HTML5 features.
I’m Joining the RedWhitemt Team
Good news, I’m joining the REDWHITEmt team. Actually, just to make it sound better, I officially started at the beginning of the year, although discussions had started a while back. This is what has kept me busy and away from this blog lately – among other things of course; such as my job, working for clients, having a break and travelling during the Christmas holidays. Well, you get the picture.
In my last post, The October Challenge, I mentioned that I had been contacted by Pawlu from RWmt who offered me the post of contributor for the aforementioned site. An offer which I gladly accepted. RWmt is a blog focusing mainly on art and an array of design disciplines in Malta. The site has been ongoing for nearly 3 years and has slowly built a reputation as one of the top local sites promoting Maltese artists and designers. The idea of contributing to the local design community has always interested me and RWmt seems to be the right channel to do this.
After a few meetings with the RWmt team, it was agreed that besides contributing in writing for the site, I would also take part in the running and administration of RWmt with the aim of taking it to the next level and exploring new ventures within the RWmt brand. Although the site enjoys a strong following, I believe there’s potential for further growth and we will also be looking at this opportunity. This site is also in need of a dire face-lift.
So, kicking off the new year with my first task – to redesign the RWmt website. Still using Wordpress, the new design will take a minor shift from the current layout and we will be addressing the site’s main features and usability in more detail. One of the major changes is that the new site is responsive and also includes the use of web fonts to align with RWmt’s brand.
The introduction of a new section will also be launched in the coming months, but more of that will be announced by RWmt later on.
So exciting times are ahead, both for RWmt and for myself, and surely there’s plenty of work that needs to be done.
Follow RWmt on Twitter – they’ll keep you posted with the progress.
