Recently launched a portfolio site for Castpartner, a Hollywood casting company. The site design is by Nate Harrison and hand coded by yours truly. I have to say it was a relief to not be responsible for the design – it’s nice to just be told what to do every now and then.
Also, custom coded sites are awesome. Obviously its silly to write everything yourself for something like a blog, but if you have the funds and/or knowledge to code a static, simpler site yourself, I think it shows. Props to the LazyLoad jQuery plugin – a necessity for such an image heavy site. I’m currently developing a client login area for private content.
