Log in to Reply | noel saw says: May 7, 2014 at 3:13 am Hey Shri, which “content” are you reviewing? Is it for the home page or which inner page? Log in to Reply | shri says: May 7, 2014 at 3:54 am Content on all built inner pages – since It seems there is too much and I need to cut down – I have tried to keep it short but think it is still a lot. Log in to Reply | noel saw says: May 7, 2014 at 3:59 am @Shri, got it. Let’s take a look at the first inner page that gets built tonight after Matt’s done. We can review with Crystal and also get feedback from Charlie and Mario.

Unless you want to keep the medium color grey on the footer? Noel Log in to Reply | noel saw says: May 7, 2014 at 11:05 pm Shri, for the thumbnails on the footer you can set the published dates on each post here to resort the display order. Screenshot: http://glui.me/?i=s1j1i0jh9wwt8bu/2014-05-07_at_4.04_PM.png/ I already “moved” Mobile + more to the end as a demonstration. Log in to Reply | noel saw says: May 8, 2014 at 12:21 am Hi Shri, can you please clean up the “Matt Files” Dropbox shared folder? We need to start converting the StubHub and Samsung case studies but not sure if we should use the AI or PDF versions. I’lll also post this message on StrataList so you can reply there. We can work with AI files so if you want archive the PDFs but make sure the AI are newest. Just a reminder that we’re doing up to 3 case studies as part of the SOW. We’ve got a draft up of the Magellan. Thanks! Log in to Reply | noel saw says: May 8, 2014 at 12:37 am Hi Shri, for the home hero image – I know on a non 4:3 (like full width Mac Book Pro screens) aspect ratio screens, your headshot photo gets cut off. This is a result of us targeting 4:3 aspect ratio devices like the iPad and having a responsive hero image that tries to fill up the screen. We can have a work around by getting a better photo of you that’s centered or placed up higher faded/feathered out. Crystal’s going to try it out later tonight. I think she can come up with a good design to accommodate for this 16:9 issue. Or if you want we can increase the budget a bit to spend extra time optimizing for both 4:3 and 16:9 devices. Matt and I spent several hours tweaking this as much as possible this morning but we need to go with the work around above for now until phase 2. Thanks! Noel Noel Log in to Reply | shri says: May 8, 2014 at 3:34 am 1. I have organized file under Matt files folder – Under ‘Pages’ folder there are Pages-ai (where the ai pages are – they include homepage, inner pages, and navigation bar); Content files (content .txt files with CSS, Resume PDF and Patents PDF), images folder (all embedded images reside here), HomeHero (homepage hero pages) USE Ai files (Ai readable PDFs were created because of your original request when we first started the project) 2. StubHub has no case studies, just a sample from live site. Samsung has 2 (EventTV and TagTV), Magellan has 2 (In-vehicle and Outdoor), Rovi is work done by my team. The grey on footer was a placeholder, I can brainstorm with Crystal on color. 3. Also blue letters on my name, Hero page text, and About and contact at footer are not looking good. 4. We need a workaround on the 4:3 issue – besides photo ‘content and services’ icons were also getting cut off. Let us optimize in Phase 2 for 16:9 – I just need to have something good to get interviews 🙂 5. I don’t understand about 3 cases as SOW – do you mean you will create 3 inner pages and rest I will have to create via WordPress? I prefer we use Rovi, Samsung, and Magellan as case studies – StubHub is very light. But once I understand what exactly you mean by case studies (my guess is inner pages), I will get going. That means website will remain unfinished until I get 3 more pages..so still not shareable with recruiters..do you think I can do them myself within hours? Log in to Reply | shri says: May 8, 2014 at 4:04 am I have 3 annotated images (in skitch) on Matt files folder – how do I share skitch here? Log in to Reply | shri says: May 8, 2014 at 4:12 am Noel, please check these skitch screen capture comments: file:///Users/Admin/Dropbox/Shri-New%20Portfolio/Matt%20Files/Skitch/Shri-Portfolio-Homepage.png file:///Users/Admin/Dropbox/Shri-New%20Portfolio/Matt%20Files/Skitch/Shri-MagellanPage1.png file:///Users/Admin/Dropbox/Shri-New%20Portfolio/Matt%20Files/Skitch/Shri-Magellan%202.png Log in to Reply | noel saw says: May 8, 2014 at 4:23 pm Hi Shri, we were not ready for feedback. We (Crystal, Matt, and myself) have been talking about internally fine tuning elements. Most if not all of the notes you put on Skitch, we’re already aware of. Please wait for us to say “we’re ready for feedback.” I made a note about the ordering of thumbnails on the footer. Please, please read notes carefully. I’ve mentioned from the beginning that we’ll enter 3 case studies for you, the rest you’ll have to do yourself or pay extra for us to enter them in. We’ve already spent way over $ budget before we enlisted Crystal’s help. We started with a very low budget because I had a feeling things would get harder and more complex as most projects do so if you need more help and work, we need to “open up more runway.” Noel Log in to Reply | noel saw says: May 8, 2014 at 4:24 pm Shri, Can we have a call around 12 or 1 pm today with Crystal? Log in to Reply | shri says: May 11, 2014 at 5:36 pm Crystal, I have complete Mobile+ More page layout in ai. I am now working to finish Motorla page in next several hours. – I may have to create ‘About page’ but will need to talk to Noel and Crystal so I am clear what I need to do there – I intend to use the old Homepage content as ‘About’ content. Will this be simple text entered as a wordpress page or need to create another inner page? – I will update resume and put it in the folder Log in to Reply | shri says: May 12, 2014 at 12:23 am I have completed Motorola page as well. I might need tweaking the text but I will edit later. Noel/ Crystal – what do you need from me for About page? We can catch up with a call at noon tomorrow? Log in to Reply | noel saw says: May 12, 2014 at 10:07 am Hi Shri, Crystal’s chatting with Matt about some more refinements to your site. I know she was entering in content for the inner page aka case studies last night but needed to chat with Matt this morning. For the About page, I think we entered in some or all of the previous home page content already but need to reformat it with columns. Crystal will chime in shortly and possibly setup a call with you later today.
