Took a Vacation
Took a road trip

Took a Two Week Road Trip.

It was the first time in a long time that I had a two week vacation.  My partner and I drove from Boston to Michigan, stopping at a couple campgrounds along the way.

Deployed a website

The redesigned hirozed.com is live!

My personal site is new, improved, and awesome!  Designed by Ashley, it is a single page that gives a quick overview of me, what I've been doing code-wise, my latest posts, and where else you can find me.

Included in the redesign is my red panda keycap mascot, also lovingly designed by Ashley.

I truly love how this turned out, and I hope you like it.

Created a logo and banner for Hirozed

I designed a logo and banner for my partner, Jim Reevior, to use on his personal website, blog, and social media. He was hoping to incorporate a red panda and something related to his career as a web developer and felt personal. I decided to create an icon that looks like a keyboard key to speak to his developer side, while still using the colors and shapes of a red panda. The glasses match his new glasses.

We worked together to incorporate his internet handle, Hirozed, into a banner, and we tried both blue and green backgrounds for their contrast. The green ended up working best! I also wanted to make sure the typeface and icon were both friendly and approachable, and had a helpful kind of vibe, since those are words Jim usually uses to describe himself.

You can see it in action on his blog!
