Poster design for our hometown - 00

I finished the poster design for our hometown this week. Well, one of my friends, who is my native also, is going to set up an Association for our hometown, it’s named “Huxiang Youth Association”, “Huxiang” – 胡巷, which is the name of our village, where we grew up. And one day of this year that guy and I sat and had the lunch together to plan the Association. Well, that guy spent much more time than I on planning about that, he told me he’s been working on that nice thing for one or two months, with his rest time. Pretty hard work, I call tell.

Suggestions for the beginner of web design

2-years is a pretty short time for the web design career, I think, so I consider myself as the beginner, of course, all the times.

If you are interested in web design and the beginner of it, I am really glad about that, and hey, it is really good to get started or “tasted” something interesting and different you like in your life.

OK, if you’d like to create the web design or want to start a web design business that focused on beautiful, standard-compatibility websites, I would love to have you some suggestions…
