Excuse me if I seem a little out of breath. I’ve been smashing things on the website, trying to get a new site design ready for company to come over. In fact, I haven’t broken so much stuff at one time since a housing rehab group stationed me next to a 55-gallon drum with a claw hammer and had me break surplus windows all day. That, oddly, was much more relaxing than this. They weren’t my windows.
The look at NCPR has been getting stuffy and crowded, like a Victorian parlor with too much furniture and lots of figurines and fussy little doilies. We’re going for more of a Scandinavian Modern look–lighter, simpler, and with enough room to swing the cat. And we’ve put a lot of work in upping our game with photos and graphics. The new design will showcase that work better.
We’re hoping to roll out the whole ball of wax by Monday. What could possibly go wrong? I’ve been finding out all day. So expect a little chaos, a little inconsistency–zen garden on one page, briar patch on the next, holes containing nothing but the great white void. Worst case–the site will look exactly the same because we had to kick the can down the road and get the heavy equipment back in. To quote Radio Bob, “Don’t worry. Everything is going to be all right… soon.”
