I'm building a brand new site to embrace some brand new opportunities. Check back in, in the coming weeks!

“This site is static! What’s the deal Kyle?”

Yeah, I get it, and frankly I’m a bit embarrassed. Just a few years ago when you opened a browser on your phone and discovered a website was responsive you felt like you were given a treat. “Hey look at this! Nice.” Today is a much different story. I wouldn’t even consider building a unresponsive website for a client unless they has a justifiable reason. That option isn’t even negotiable. Now, the days of a responsive website being a “perk” are long gone. Having a static website today is nothing less than a detriment. So here is the deal: This website has long lived past its prime. It’s nearly six years old; designed when I was still a college student. It runs on WordPress. In short: It’s no longer an accurate representation of my skills.
It must come down. I’m building a new site, and I’m doing it properly: I’m treating it like I would treat a client. I’m giving it time. I’m being liberal with my considerations. I’m exploring many paths to determine which will lead me to my goal most poignantly. Unlike a client project though, I’m not getting paid for this work and so it often takes a backseat to more pressing concerns: The needs of my clients, my time with the AIGA, teaching at Bethel University. So I ask you, for now please try to see past the flaws of this dilapidated site. A new fully-responsive, well-considered, well-written, hand-coded website is coming. But until that is ready, I simply have to make due with what I have: this.
