Im excited!
Making my shift, to the silicon valley of india, will certainly be a turning point in my career as a designer. The employer being one of the best employer in the country adds to my current state of mind. Have been waiting for such a chance for sometime now and its god’s grace that ive got thru this opportunity put forward to me. My new profile will be Associate – Creative Design and Web development, and ill have to concentrate into standard compliant designing, using css and meeting the w3c standards. Have been preparing for sometime now in w3c compliant web pages and there it will be a scintillating experience as far as career and personal life is concerned.

Being closer to my family, brings joy to the mind and being with my childhood friends will be refreshing and motivating.

Now looking forward to the experiences in my new breeding ground.

Watch out Bangalore…Im coming to join you ! 😉

CSS layouts: The next step for a tabler ;-)

leave a comment »

Yes….its time to change now. Ive been designing layouts for some time now and ive been doing them using tables till some months before. Since, i came across the CSS style of designing layouts, ive been feeling how badly ive used tables before, hoping away from their actual usage, and deviating from what they are actually meant for in designing web pages.

One who knows about the various accessiblility guidelines put forward by ‘W3C’, shud avoid using tables for just positioning and beautifying the layout. They are not meant for tat! CSS is there for positioning. It would be a bit difficult for the beginners to transform from the traditional table method to the powerful and flexible CSS method. But the effort is worth it and it will be a graduation to the next level of layout designing.

Im enjoying my journey from the old table layouts to the brand new CSS layouts. Of course, internet is my ultimate teacher and it virtually unimaginable where i would have been standing without this information superhighway.
Ill keep you all posted on the advancements hereon…….Stay on and alive here 🙂
