TechWeb • techweb.com
I got my first fulltime web designer gig at
TechWeb.com (Part of CMP Media), where I worked on a whole
network of tech oriented sites. This was the ideal transition
worked in various technology roles at McCann-Erickson.
As a computer tech, I was used to working
independently. As a web designer for TechWeb, I
had a chance to work with some of the finest creative and
production people in the business. Instead of overseeing the
workflow as I had in my Technology Specialist position at McCann,
I was now part of the machine.
The learning curve was steep as a designer,
but I hit the ground running and was up to speed quickly. This
was a great opportunity for me to develop my application skills
skills. At the same, the
position kept me abreast of all of the changes and
world, giving me a broader view of the industry.
I worked on designs for a whole range of web
publications including TechWeb.com, TechEncyclopedia.com, TechSearch.com,
PlanetIT.com, Byte.com, TechShopper, FileMine, TechCalendar.com,
and TechWeb Today. In addition, I designed show coverage site
for Networld Plus Interop (N+I) and PC Expo.
My daily responsibiities included designing
news feature graphics to draw in readers to the top stories
of the day. During my stay at TechWeb, I must have designed
hundreds of daily graphics.
I moved from TechWeb.com to another CMP publication,
InformationWeek early 2001.
For the year 2000, TechWeb was awarded the CMP
Media Editorial Award for best Large Website.
