Since last time, quite a lot has happened. The thesis paper of 2019 is completed, and some less fortunate events happened during completed and some less fortunate events happened during the summer that took my original update schedule and threw it out the window. So instead of a summer of productivity it has been a summer of self care, but I’m back on track and more confident than ever now. However, during this time I have still done quite substantial progress towards finding out what the next step is for me forward and out. I’ve started to reach out to some professors here on campus as well as looking into UX positions in companies, mainly abroad because that just feels right for me.
This site has since last time also seen some rather substantial changes, which those with a keen eye might’ve been able to spot: several sections have been removed or reverted back to their draft in favour for full completion before publishing. This way, not a single page is half baked or below the standards that I want to keep. The affected sections are the following: Travels, Portfolio, and Photos. Furthermore, the travel logs are already scheduled and laid out, but for the first large travel batch I want at least several logs to be included before moving forward with new ones as they come. Additionally, the photo gallery was reverted while designing the watermarks and layout of the page itself.
Keep your eyes peeled, and if you know of any UX/web design openings near you or regarding design in general that you think I could be interested in, feel free to let me know by leaving me a message here.
Since the initial rebranding last month, a lot of things have happened. Courses have been attended, reassigned and taken on with the outmost presicion. A new project in the making that will, conducted with help of people with there roots in China, Russia, Sweden and USA. If everything goes according to plan, and the outcome deemed satisfactory, the outcome of this project of conceptual exploration will be available on the portfolio page once everything is finished by the summer. Furthermore, a project on institutional international recruitment has been conducted with great response from the heads of the institution. Permission of upload is pending.
However, there have been some complications regarding the streamlined work process that was planned regarding this site and other social media activity. The reasons for these are related to personal matters, and technical diffuculties with my main build suffering from bugs and crashes. The responsible IT-person will be on it in due time, the main obsticle being our current work hours.
In other news.
An interesting job offer was turned down after taken into consideration all the living expenses, costs of moving there and how they expected things to be done in relation to the salary (full time for a lot less than the minimum vage). These were things that were expressed in a requitment page information update in the 11th hour from their end. This was an unfortunate change of events, since they are otherwise doing a great job, and reading their application information made my personal life goals form. You will recieve a personal letter soon as a sign of my appreciation, until then, keep up the good work, you are doing a great job in the community. In the meantime, links to other companies that are currently hiring people of my merits and skillset have been recieved. That is one of the reasons why a resumé page is under construction, the bio is being reworked, and three portfolio entries are currently taking form.
In March 2017, this site was put on an indefinite hiatus due to personal reasons and have since then been slumbering, still managing to achieve severe spikes during the content drought. For those of you who have stuck around despite all that: There is some good news coming your way, right now.
As of March 2019, a complete overhaul will take place as a part of a larger makeover involving everything from social media presence to interpersonal communication. Furthermore, frameworks and strategies as of how to achieve the new long term goals either have been or currently are being constructed. This means that this site and others will, some already have, see changes coming to them. Social media presence will be increased, connections will be looked through and any of the loose ends that were left lying in 2017 will be wrapped up – all to create a successful reboot and a clean start for the future.
Now to what is related to this site: The ones from the old days may have noticed that the site already doesn’t look the same. The old posts have been removed, a new modern minimalist design have been implemented and the menu systems have been reworked and the list goes on. When everything is in place, this will be much more than a blog like it used to be – it will be a platform for my personal brand. Updates are already happening on daily behind the scenes and one by one, the different sections of this site will be filled up with content and unlocked. And to the old followers of mine: Don’t worry about the old posts, plenty of that will come back reworked and polished to fit the new design.
