Content When I started my career in digital media, I had already dealt with the combined moniker of designer / scripter. Having launched myself out of an Interactive Media Masters Degree with a bit of lingo scripting learnt, just after three years on a design degree and I'd started creating interactive design combining the two disciplines.

I decided I was a specialist in interactive design. Someone who could make graphic design interactable.

Content Work talk in the blogosphere often revolves around making money online. Whilst this invariably reflects the multitude of get-rich-quick-schemes involving affiliate marketing, running your own blog or selling your own product, in a broader sense I see it encompassing the paid-for service industry too.

Selling Services

People sell their consultancy, production skills, and journalistic endeavours (to name a few) directly to paying clients. Delivery online, whether it be via email or content depository via a web service, has become second nature. For people who utilise the internet for work, location isn't therefore as much of an issue.

Content For a long time, I never valued the concept or content of ebooks and certainly didn't want to pay for them. However, in recent years, the presence of downloadable ebooks on blogs and websites, has exploded to the point of ubiquity - and I'm now a convert. Let me explain.

What Do We Mean by "Ebook"?

Ebooks by definition are digital files. To less frequent users of the web, they're probably understood as the books you'll find on devices like Amazon's kindle or the Sony Reader. Basically, digital e-versions of fiction and non-fiction books found in bricks and mortar stores.

Content I've often had to explain to clients that websites have two distinct aspects of hosting - domain name hosting and website hosting.

For people new to commissioning websites, this is an essential and simple concept to grasp and will save confusion later down the line for example, when domain names have to be renewed. Understanding the distinction will allow payments to be updated for both, to avoid domain names lapsing and therefore being lost.

Domain hosting and website hosting can be acquired from the same company but can also be bought separately from two different companies.

Content Discussing how presenting imperfect work can help isn't meant to be an excuse for lazyness. And get over any thoughts of excusing the fact that you've simply run out of time and haven't been able to finish either.

During the course of a project, (not necessarily design based) you'll probably have several stages where you'll need to present work in progress to your client. It makes sense that at each stage, depending on what you've agreed to do, you'll want to present the best work that you can. However, I've found that producing your best work in progress can also mean leaving out some features and leaving in bugs.
