I am putting the finishing touches to a CV / Professional Skills site (I’ll do an extensive blog post of all tasty design elements for the official site-live, which should hopefully be in the next few days). The concept theme behind the site is the idea of nodes and connections, and I’ve (jokingly) coined the term: “Connectionist” to describe the professional practice of connection making.
The final (cherry-on-top) design element was a logo identity. The challenge was to visually represent the Connectionist idea as well as myself. Here’s what I came up with:
The ‘sell’ of the Connectionist being that having a wide field of training allows someone to make connections between disparate disciplines and hence to produce creative solutions.
The design and development of this project has been (notwithstanding a few notable Jquery pains) quite a joy. The web is evolving faster than early man when he got his first set of opposable thumbs!
