Remember me?  Me neither.  Somewhere in the flurry of becoming an employee rather than a consultant I went from being busy to being overwhelmed with work. As some of you know, I founded Cre8asiteforums and in October of 2012 it was sold to Internet Marketing Ninjas.  I came along with it, so part of my work is focused on growing the Cre8tive Community there.  Several months later and I can say all the changes and upgrades have been paying offRead more…

This site was once how I moonlighted at night as a freelancer in SEO after working full-time during the day as a user interfaceRead more…

I came on the Internet web design scene in 1995 as a newly single, divorced mom of two young children. My story feels old now and retold many times.

For my friends who devour case studies in Human Factors and new thinking in web design, here are some of my more recent finds. Service Design Elements that comprise Service Design as a discipline.
