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.
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,
