One of the interesting things about contract work is that, often, you're brought onto a preexisting project. On this particular assignment, I was asked to completely revamp a blog that was built on one of my least favorite (and frustratingly inflexible) blogging platforms, Google Blogger. Despite the various roadblocks from the platform, though, the product turned out pretty well. It went from a static, blocky layout to something far more fluid and, of course, responsive for mobile devices. Plus, we were also able to adapt the design for a new set of business cards as well.
