I feel like it’s been too long since I’ve written here, but maybe that proves that I am being productive? Either way, I’ve been busy pumping away on a new site that is nearing completion and I’m really excited about. It’s a golf tournament that travels the country and gives proceeds to the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children (pretty awesome). They play on some of the most beautiful courses in the nation and offer a great competition for those up to the challenge.
This was a unique project for me in that the turn around for it was very fast. This meant that I had to go with my instincts on what the client wanted and what the purpose of the site was to be. With a tight timeline and a long list of things to accomplish, I didn’t get the opportunity to second guess or think twice, I had to keep pushing forward to meet my deadline, and rely on what I knew. The deadline and large overlay of goals I needed to achieve actually inspired me to work harder and make continuous progress on the website. It also triggered my problem solving skills, forcing me to come up with ideas quickly and implement them.
The main purpose was to promote the excellence this Tournament conveys, and encourage people to register and compete. The site will also act as a hub where people can go back to check results from past tournaments to see winners and photo galleries outlining the highlights of each tournament.
The Lawyer Charity Challenge was a great challenge for me; it tested my understanding of what the client wanted and going with my gut. There are some things you can quantify and measure, and some things you can’t. Instinct and feeling will always have a slight edge over measurements and equations.
We are still doing minor tweaks on the site, but it’s past the 90th percentile in it’s completion, click the preview below to check it out:
