How I almost shipped a product every month in 2015

By admin on December 29th, 2015 in Updates

Near the end of 2014 I decided I wanted to try something different. In the past, I’ve mainly focused on freelance work to make a little extra money on the side and have a creative outlet outside of the day job. After almost 10 years of following this pattern, I decided I wanted to make a change. Instead of focusing on freelance work I wanted to focus on my own projects. The main reasons for this was that I was tiring of constantly having to do the same amount of work for around the same amount of pay. I was looking for ways to work less but keep my side income where it was or even increase it. The other reason I was looking for a change was boredom. I think we can all agree it can be exciting to start your own projects where you don’t have to answer to a client and you have the creative freedom to do what you want.

Cardeo launches new clothing and art brand

By admin on November 2nd, 2015 in Updates

Along with writing my new book, I’ve been working on a new side project. If any of you have been following me for awhile, you may be aware of my other website cardeo.ca. Cardeo was originally founded in 2004 as my freelance design studio. Since that time it’s gone through a few changes in direction and rebrands. I’ve been pondering the direction of my business for some time and finally decided to relaunch it as a clothing and art brand. This is an extension of my other artwork that you may have seen at cardeo.dunked.com.

Year in Review 2014

By admin on December 30th, 2014 in Updates

2014 was a year of change for me. I decided to make a move away from freelance client work to focus more on my own products. Although I maintained a little bit of client work, I was mostly successful in sticking to my new direction. On March 11th, I released the CSS3 Handbook which was my first eBook. It starts with the basics of CSS3 and moves into more advanced topics like animation and transitions. Launching my first book was a decent amount of work and I learned what not to do when I launched my second eBook on July 8th. Mastering Bootstrap is a guide to theming and selling your own Bootstrap themes. It was a more successful launch than the CSS3 Handbook and received great reviews around the interwebs. Writing, coding, and promoting these two products took up the majority of my time in 2014.
