Working for a web design company has been so different from anything I've ever done before. We're always trying to figure out new and better ways to do everything. My role here at BlueTone Media is to do a little bit of design and a little bit of coding, while handling customer service and writing the occasional third person biography. With design, I create the pages after Stephen comes up with a sharp template that...


I learned to draw in the computer using a wonderful program called Freehand. Sadly when Adobe bought Macromedia they shoved Freehand off the boat with cement shoes, never to be heard from again. Since then I have been forced to learn Illustrator and have for the most part made the transition pretty easily. There are still some things Freehand did WAY better that I hope will be integrated when we see the new CS4 next Tuesday....


One of the many hats that I wear here at BTM is an SEO hat; I am constantly on the prowl for good Search Engine Optimization reference materials and keep a good list of “Do’s and Don’ts” handy at all times. Recently we had a client contact us about getting his site ranked higher in search engines. He was already showing up fairly well, but not as high as he would have liked to been.

College was my first real experience with the internet. Back then, I was all about using IE (Internet Explorer) in the various computer labs all over UNC-Asheville's campus.

But not anymore. Today, we have a choice. For me,...

So I have this thing for desktop wallpapers. During the summer movie season I had a wallpaper up that had to do with the movie coming out that week. Like an Iron Man one for Iron Man and so on. Sometimes there was not a really good one for some movies so I would make my own. The Batman one stayed up for a few weeks since the movie was OUTSTANDING! Since the summer movie season is over I was wondering what to put up...


So this is my first post for our new design. I'm going to do a couple of these posts talking about the new design and some of the processes that went in to creating it. In this post I'll be talking about the new logo and how it came about. First I'll start with the old logo. This was created prior to me being hired at Bluetone Media. It was a great logo and has been used from the very beginning of the company....
