Oh man, we did it! So a few months ago we launched the Mojoe.Net site, and since then we’ve had great success! We’ve already had a number of projects come straight from the site and from our online search engine rankings. Of course, as “live” launches go sometimes you have to do other things later and for us that meant putting off the blog. After a couple of days looking at tutorials on ThemeForest and other sites, we created our own blog.

So just like any fledgling publication, I’m sure the content of this blog will go through some growing pains. However, our aim is clear. We want our posts to be meaningful and not aimless rants. So every post will deal in some way with Web design and development. And we’ll try to conclude each post with four or five links that we’ve found helpful, which we’ll call “Stuff We’re Diggin’. ”

So let’s get to it, shall we?

For the longest time I’ve been a Firefox devotee. I was first introduced to the browser in about 2004. Since then I’ve been in love with it, but I’ve found a new love: Opera. Yes, yes, I know, Opera, the often revered and rarely used standards-compliant browser. I downloaded it about a month ago just out of curiosity and because I wanted to design for it and to add it to my repertoire. From the first time I laid eyes on it and started click on the menu options to the first time I saw the favorite sites windows that show up when you first open the browser, I loved it. It’s one of the few browser’s that has ever gotten me very excited, and I would love nothing more than to see it gain prominence in the browser world. Perhaps this may only happen in some Web design-specific utopian universe, but nonetheless, I can dream can’t I?

Another site I’ve really been loving lately is Typesites. It brings out the graphic design geek in me! As its site description says Typesites is “a critical look at sites featuring interesting typography.” Typesites’ featured sites are typography-driven Web sites or sites with superb typographic layout.  One of my favorite sites on there is for a New Zealand wine maker called Black Estate. I love their use of animated javascript, and it’s inspired me to use the scrolling text effect on some of our upcoming projects.

So those are just two of the things I’ve really been getting  into. Thanks for reading and come back soon to read more about what Mojoe.Net is doing.
