since I may never have a chance to post this again...
comedy goldthere are a few simple rules to great web design:
1. Always rely on stupid interface gimmicks.
2. Always put annoying fucking bird sound effects on everything.
3. Always make your web design incompatible with different screen resolutions, especially if you are advertising yourself as a web designer.
4. Always write body copy in a lousy script font, and then make it further unreadable by putting a "san francisco" flag in front of it.
5. If you need to type out instructions to explain how your user interface/navigation works, it's probably fantastic.
6. Repeating work in your portfolio is a great way to fill in the empty spaces of a template.
7. Understand absolutely nothing about perspective before distorting a graphic to look like it is on a brick wall. Attention to detail will only slow you down.
8. Referring to yourself as "amazing" is a great promotional idea, especially if you are a magician.
