My buddy Doug Koke and I joined forces in late July to come up with series of web designs for the purpose of fitting them to existing content-management driven websites for an associate I met online. I must say, we rock some socks in the design department. I was surprised that after years of doing pure development work, I still have some chops.
Each of us picked from a set of 12 possible layouts (6 each) with a wide range of styles: Dark Music (featured left), Sports, News Portals and Design Portfolios to name a few. It sure is nice to be able to come up with ideas and not have to actually implement them sometimes! Its a different workflow to just keep cranking out concepts and not have to break the cycle to write lines and lines of code.
