This is a little example shows the challenge faced by companies all over the world who are good at producing something, but need to get their product to as many people who will benefit from what they have to offer. Through many circumstances I am sitting here typing this post because I want to communicate stories of hope, redemption, and reconciliation through media such as video, film, and theater. Since I don’t have the financial resources to hire people like marketers, social media experts, etc., I’ve got to fill all those roles myself (at least until I have earned those financial resources). This is my day job, one that I’m learning to do better and better every day and I have two responsibilities: produce high quality content and get that content in front of as many eyes as possible.
Since we are in the 21st century, web is the main communication tool used to disseminate media. It won’t be long until the traditional TV model is dead, and all entertainment will be broadcast in some form on the web. Mobil has just surpassed that of “traditional” desktop usage. People are searching, watching, and generating data on the go from the touchscreens of their phablets, myself included. These are exciting times for people like me, who have unprecedented access to technology that makes creation and promotion of media extremely affordable and less time intensive to produce.
This blog will cover my journey from novice non-web designer to expert non-web designer. I’ll share my successes and learning points along the way, showing that web design includes more than just coding. It takes heart, grasp of story, and the goal of promoting a vision that changes the world. Be a part of the journey by reading, commenting, and trying web design to promote your vision to the world as well. I’m excited for what lies ahead!
