Making the Introductions

Happy New Year! How appropriate we got the blog up on the first of January 2010. I’ll be keeping this first entry short and sweet as I still have a lot of work to do. I suppose I’ll just start off by introducing Arcnerva and saying a few words about myself.

My name is Erik and I am a Project Director at Arcnerva. Arcnerva is a small design firm currently located in the lush, mountainous terrain of Clearwater, Florida. We dabble in all the usual nonsense: Web Design, Graphic Design, Marketing, Branding, etc. I am 30 years old and I have been doing graphic design, web design, and just about everything computer on a freelance/professional level off and on for the past 8 years or so. I typically lean twords the visual side of things but I am schooled in all of the above. My unhealthy addiction to computers probably started when my sister brought home a wood grain paneled TV, a Tandy TRS-80, and a copy of Dallas Quest. From there I “graduated” to an illustrious Tandy 386SX, tossed in a 1200 baud modem and joined Sierra’s ImagiNation Network. Sparing you any further details (your welcome), we’ll just say the rest was history. On the off chance I’m not working I can typically be found reading about html/css, graphic design, typography, business, seo, or anything else I happen to find interesting,  working on messing with personal projects, drinking red bull to excess, and relaxing with my girlfriend.

Part-time Blogtending

It looks like in between my ever growing amount of client and personal work (good thing) I am going to be running the Arcnerva Blog which I am going to use to interact a bit with the design community, give some loot away, talk about all of the stuff I like and brush up on my grammatical skills. I think this is going to be a really great learning experience for all of us as we continue to grow during the new year. I already have my whiteboard riddled with diabolical plans and such and I am really looking forward to seeing how this all turns out.

We’re still working on the site/blog but I think we have something good to work with so far. Expect to see changes in the coming months as we evolve everything and kick the ball rolling. Again I hope everyone had a great new years and hopefully my next post will be a little less me and a little more entertaining.

See you around,
