I didn’t think this day would ever come. I started on the build of this site in November 2006. But, the waiting is finally over. Singerco.com is finally launched today. Click the thumbnail below for a screenshot.
From a design standpoint, I guess I am proud of this web site. From a code standpoint, I am disappointed. I was extremely proud of my original build. But the site was a redesign and a rush job. It was merged with existing programming, and in the end, the designer, plus at least three different programmers all had their hands in it. It also had to be merged with existing content, which was all in tables.
The result is a mish-mash of code that does not validate and barely resembles the original build. It looks good though and will most likely be an award winning design. In the end that is all most people care about. And they should. The client is happy, and we win shiny plaques to display in our office to show off to clients.
The code does matter though to people that do what I do everyday. And I can’t help but wish we had more time to build it and program it the right way. You can check out the new Singer web site right here.
