Welcome to Unspeakable Media! We’re glad to finally be getting moving with this project.
I’m Ian, by the way. I usually write at IanMRountree.com, am a member of the Thoughtwrestling ka-tet, and will be launching another blog soon as well as leisurely working on this one with Yawhann Chong of ChickenBall Design. We’re going to be moving slowly for the next few months – but that’s no reason not to just get started, now that we’re set… At least for the blog itself.
Unspeakable Media is a public repository for the art, works, and projects of creative arts professionals, freelancers, and amateur enthusiasts connected to the web. We’re only launching the blog for the moment, and posting will be sporadic – we apologize – but with so many projects on the go, it’s difficult to commit to the daily schedule we’d love to have. More appropriately, we expect to keep the blog’s schedule informal, and share when we have the material to do so. So – until we make a declaration otherwise – please subscribe to the feed, and treat everything like a bonus. We promise not to clutter your feed readers until we have things worth reading.
Now – that being said, here’s the real plan. The Unspeakable Media blog itself will see a lot of design, development, and especially UX (user experience) entries, as well as some design theory and workflow studies. We’re going to build out from there.
At the top of the main page, you’ll notice a portfolio section. Yawhann and I will be dropping our designs there from time to time, and eventually asking fellow designers to contribute visual goodness – or even some elegant use-case goodness – to this portion of the site. In short, if it’s deliverable, it’s worth putting up. The point is to get people thinking about the many different theories and schools of design and development, because the idea of The Best Practice is swiftly being deprecated as the web gets more dynamic. But more on that later.
We’re building a community here, centered around design and development as an art, and as a big part of how people do business these days. Join us, won’t you?
Please subscribe to this blog – we’ll try to keep the noise down to a dull roar for the forseeable future.
