wolfgang amadeus mozart said, when i am completely myself, entirely alone, or during the night when i cannot sleep, it is on such occasions that my ideas flow best and most abundantly.

i’m working on a new idea, even as you read this.

design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose.

About.

in 1999, i designed my first web site for a well known company that rebuilt and restored classic mustang cars.

it was a time when every well designed site displayed all the bells and whistles of music; (mustang sally in this case), rotating objects, site visitor counters, colorized side scroll bars, trailing mouse pointers and anything else the imagination could conjure up.

within a short time period, i realized the superiority of what in recent years, has been entitled 'flat design' and 'white space'. all of my sites were quickly transformed with straight html designs.

trends in web design don’t linger long and in our current climate of diy, i have shifted my focus toward graphic design. since 1999, i have designed graphics for clients' sites as i built them, but now i am releasing those designs to others for use in their diy projects.

as always, quality is my mantra. purchase graphics from pearweed’s online shop and use them to reach your goals.

the art of design.

the art of design.

designing a web site is a process. sometimes the initial ideas work perfectly. at other times, they help the client and/or the designer re-think the content. we begin with what we've envisioned is a great design, but the further we get into the process, the site seems to take on a character of its own. it's almost as if the site begins to direct the designer.

the process.

the initial design ideas may have been based upon something as simple as a desired color or an existing logo, but as the pages go online for viewing, it becomes apparent something is lacking. sometimes a different logo is designed or a logo is merged into a photo and the site begins to move toward something new. it's an interesting process for the designer and the client.

the results.

sometimes a random photo captured amongst many seemingly 'have to' photos is the one that rises to the surface and looks so striking it becomes the focal point of the site. are you getting a glimpse of the difference between web design and plug-in templates? if so, then you're beginning to see the finest web sites are 'designed'.

e.f. schumacker said, "any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. it takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction."
