Startup Students Wins Bizignee Award

Topic: Projects| Comments Off on Startup Students Wins Bizignee Award

I received an email the other day informing me I had won an award from the folks at Logoworks and HP. It was unsolicted and I’m definately honored. Here’s a blurb about the award from there site:

Out of all the small business websites in the world, the winners of a Bizignee blog award are simply the best – both in content and design. Each small business website that is nominated for the award is reviewed and judged based on the overall design of their website, as well as the value and creativity of the content they provide.

I spent the better part of my afternoon giving the site a facelift.  It’s still a work in progress, so please let me know your thoughts on the design, usability, etc. by commenting to this post.

With the redesign will come more frequent updates, so look forward to more great content coming your way shortly from Startup Students.  Class dismissed.

Today I’m taking you into my home office to show you how I’ve set up shop. I work out of my room (like lots of college entrepreneurs), but I make the best of it.

First a quick tour, then I’ll go into more detail on two projects you can implement for your home office.

I’ve got a corner desk, with room for writing, working on the computer, and organizing my belongings. You’ll notice two monitors and a WACOM tablet – essential tools for a web developer. Under the desk you’ll find a dual core desktop – perfect for running photoshop, flash, and dreamweaver at the same time as I often do.

I carry a laptop and my T-Mobile Dash everywhere I go, very convenient for staying in contact with my clients while on campus or around town.

Off to the right you’ll notice my filing cabinet and above that my whiteboard, and that’s the first project I’ll be discussing. I got the idea from Dave’s post over at Mind Petals and decided to put the plan into action. Click below to keep reading. Read the rest of this entry »
