I put the previous version of Orangetronic.com together in a couple of hours about four years ago. It's only real job was to have my email written down for people who couldn't be bothered to write it down. I was still in college, living in the Midwest. I built websites from time to time, usually as part of larger projects I was involved with. When I graduated, I picked up jobs producing documentary film in the non-profit world, and kept the web thing up as more of a hobby.
Fast-forward a few years, and I'm back in the UK, working almost exclusively on web-based projects. High time, I think, for an orangetronic.com reboot.
There's a lot more to come, content-wise. The content I've uploaded so far is really only from the last year, and I'm involved in some big projects at the moment that I'm not quite ready to tell you about yet. And I'm sure the design of the site will evolve over coming months as I bring in more content.
But, for today, it feels really good to get everything in one place and take a look back at the things I've built over the past year or so. I'm thinking a lot about how this works as a business, where it's headed, and the kind of projects I want to be doing more of. Perhaps your next project is one of them.
