Back on Earth – The Hyperion Vacation

HyperionWhew! Well, that was fun! I just dove into an “accelerated timeline” workaholic frenzy, and pulled the job off successfully, at the great expense of my online personal life (really, you can only sit in front of a computer so many hours a day). So sorry for the silence, the unreturned emails, the lack of reading your stuff. I’m back on your planet now. It may take me a few days to catch up, but at least I’m here. So where the heck have I been? I’ve been working at Interbrand, a corporate branding firm. A phenomenal office with phenomenal people and a phenomenal workload. I’m completely honored to have had the opportunity to work with them. And the great accomplishment? I played a big hand in the website redesigns for Hyperion, a major business software company. Talented artists created the designs, I turned the designs into XHTML and CSS web pages, and Hyperion applied them to their existing complex websites. It was a whole lot like translation work — talking to the designers at one company, talking to the web developers at another company, and conveying information between them in ways that are easy on both sides. So take a look at Hyperion’s new public website: http://www.hyperion.comI also built the entire user interface for their Brand Asset Management website, which I can’t show you. ‘Cuz you don’t work for them. Sorry. But take my word for it, it kicks some serious ass.And while I was at it, I wrote a quick-start user manual and a set of guidelines for future web development. Those tech writing skills came in mighty handy at the last minute.So now… I’ve got a low-key week left to tie up loose ends on the project, and then I’m free for the rest of May. What a scary thought…
