A Minor Update
The website redesign is going well. There’s some fine-tuning required for some of the layout stuff, but all in all, I’m pleased with my progress. I’m concentrating on giving it 30-60 minutes per day and if it goes well, I should be done by the end of this week. I’ll have a full write-up in here, either as a blog entry or a section in the forthcoming FAQ. Either way, you’ll end up with an idea of how it all came to be.
Yesterday, my research led me to a good image of an owl, which I’ll be using as the basis for my head tube badge. I hope to spend some serious time on that tonight.
Business cards. Need to design those and get that stuff to my letterpress geek (hi, Jenni!) so that I can have those ready for Minnecycle 2010. Should be pretty easy, now that I have my typography figured out, my logotype done, etc. I’d like to have a vectorized version of the head tube badge to put on it, too. We’ll see. I need to pick Jenni’s brain a bit as to what’s possible and what isn’t.
Paint masks. I need to spend some time in Adobe Illustrator and get the logotypes and everything else in there and then order up a batch ASAP so that they’re ready for when the 29′er goes off to paint.
Also, there’s that lugged commuter frameset I have underway. I need to figure out a color scheme for it, posthaste. I’ve already got the parts, and there’s a bunch of red anodized stuff in there. I’ve been thinking silver, but that’s awfully understated, given that the 29′er is going to be black and white.
Groundwork has been laid for tools/infrastructure/space — something I need to have some more discussions on this coming weekend — and I’m hoping that that can last me the next two years or so.
So, yeah, even when I’m not building, I’m still making progress. And that’s a good thing.
