All my styles will be upgraded for phpBB 3

Submitted by Jakob on 21 June, 2006 - 02:50.My Blog | phpBB | Templates, Themes and Skins | Web Design

Update: I have been forced to reconsider this decision, please see this post for more information.

I have been very busy recently as work and personal commitments have taken precedence which is why updates have been lacking. However due to the recent announcement about the first phpBB3 beta release I thought I should issue some kind of statement regarding what I'll do about my styles. They will all be upgraded, and it will be done in order of popularity, meaning Solaris will be the first style to be upgraded.

I approach web design in a similar fashion however not necessarily in such a theory-based manner.

Can web designers truly make a difference?

Submitted by Jakob on 4 May, 2006 - 19:47.My Blog | Politics & Society | Web Design

As living beings, we are born, we grow up, live and die. During that period of time many of us would like to produce something that outlives us, and almost everyone wants to impact others such as family, friends and lovers. Some of us think the world is unfair and wish to do something about it, but can you do that, regardless of your profession? I believe you can and I'll tell you why, from my point of view as a web designer.
