Designer or Jokester? You Decide

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

There is a lot of work involved in the making of a website from brand management to design to development. As one of the leading companies in website design in Los Angeles, JeTT Media Group specializes in both the technical and creative aspects necessary for a successful and dynamic website. 

While the staff here at JeTT takes your business' website design and development very seriously, Nate Louie, our amazing designer and developer also serves as the office comedian. Check out this hilarious interview with Nate about his daily work in design and development:

What project did you have the most fun on?

It would be the JeTT site. Pretty much no limitation and can be creative as I want. Tired of seeing other agency websites where everything felt very corporate, stale, hiding behind stock photos of people in business suits, or empty meeting rooms, or photos of hand shakes. Our site is a lot different with more creativity and personality, nothing to hide.

What was your most challenging project?

Trying to figure out what to eat for lunch. Almost a challenge every day.

What 2012 website design trend do you hope will go away?

Sites that are still done on a 960 grid. Responsive design is the way to go. Social media share buttons need to go away, nobody cares about that stuff you "liked."

What do you see in the future of website design?

Less static sites, more interactivity, bigger and bolder images and graphics, responsive design. Typography is getting stronger in web design.

What do you consider your specialities?

Web design, Graphic Design, Front End Development, Jet Pack Joyride, and secretly feeding Lady Bear snacks.

What project are you currently working on?

I'm currently working on several projects, including Tracey Magill, Gina Fata Coaching, Goldstar Selling Out, finding out the purpose of life, and general web site maintenance for any of our clients.

Do you have a specific approach to designing a site?

Lots of research. Every project is different and unique, and you have to treat it like that…or else everything will look like the same cookie cutter template.

What do you do in your spare time outside?

Contemplating world domination.

How comfortable are you with writing HTML entirely by hand (+exercise)? What is the w3c?

Quite comfortable, I had to learn it off the streets...no proper schooling here. W3c, let me Google that.

What are a few of your favorite development tools and why?

I use either Coda or Dreamweaver. I know it's a sin to use Dreamweaver, but I mainly use Code View rather than the WYSIWYG.

What is your favorite development language and why? What other features (if any) do you wish you could add to this language?

Don't really have a favorite, some days I'll enjoy coding something, then another day I would want to punch a cat in the face.
