Our Help Manual

The lack of user documentation for open-source projects, like Wordpress and Drupal the two Content Management Systems we develop in most frequently at Raised Eyebrow, is a known issue. While a thriving user base and a good google search can often turn up answers to questions not addressed in documentation for a development team, that's not really a viable solution for end-users, in our case clients who are simply trying to maintain and manage their websites.

The Cobbler's Children: A redesign in process

You know how the saying goes: the cobbler's children have no shoes. Ditto for the web studio and their website. We've historically struggled mightily with getting our own web house in order every 3 years or so and frequently get beyond a point where we're in desperate need of a retooling. The story is always the same: putting client work/client needs first. That said, we work really well with deadlines and our current one is Lauren's impending maternity leave. A date arriving all too soon, and not one with room for extensions.

Free Talk Tonight at Net Tuesday Vancouver

Net Tuesday logoThis is a bit last-minute, but I just realized that I'd neglected to post here that I will be presenting our recent talk, "Redesigning Your Website? What You Need to Know," at tonight's Net Tuesday Vancouver meetup. Net Tuesday is a fantastic (and free) monthly event for Vancouver-area nonprofits and the techies who love them, and I'm delighted to be their guest this evening.

Better Questions, Better Websites: Free event for Vancouver web designers

I'm excited to have been invited to speak to the Vancouver Webdesign Meetup group this week on a topic that's close to my heart: Asking better questions. In this talk, I go beyond widgets and code, and deeper than site architecture and design - to the root of what drives human interaction, and should drive technology decisions as well: function, meaning, delight and evolution.

The event takes place Wednesday, September 21 at 7:00 pm. More details here.
