If you're reading this, you've discovered it.
I built my first personal website using Wordpress on 26 March, 2010. It was the day after the Annunciation, and I was writing my dissertation and would continue to until submission in August 2011. The Wordpress site has been very useful the last 10 years but now it's beginning to look a little out of date. Time for something new before the book launch next month!
Last week I was doing a CV workshop with a group of PhD students in the research school I co-lead, and I realized that both my CV and my website need a face-lift. Also it had been some time since I done some fun graphic design so diving into the website first really appealed. All I needed was a very rainy and stormy Saturday to get a jump-start on it. Bergen delivered the weather, and Wix delivered the website editor.
Wix is a really phenomenal way to design your own website, adapting a template or from scratch. It basically works like InDesign or Illustrator – WYSIWYG – very intuitive if you work with the Adobe suite. A few years ago I made the website for our church, the Bergen Anglican Church, and it has worked very well and brings in many visitors.

Randolph and I have been doing a large variety of graphic design projects for 15 years now. A retrospective of our work can be seen at twomilesdesign.com. While I did the website for the Bergen Anglican Church, Randolph also designed the website of the Viola da Gamba Society of America (about to be renovated), as well as their logo. We've designed dozens of posters, brochures, programs, cards, and logos over the years.
We're available for new and interesting graphic design jobs as time allows!
