Well hello everyone. Happy Monday. I’m back from tour, refreshed, and ready to get back to PuckDrawn business!
First off, a bit of news. Turns out that the awesome nhluniforms.com will become even awesomer in the next couple of weeks. A full site redesign and it sounds like it’s gonna be pretty …uh… awesome! Here’s what Andrew Greenstein, the nhluniforms.com founder, has to say about it:
Yes, it’s true — I am doing a complete and total redesign of nhluniforms.com. I’m not going to give too many details — I want to keep it a surprise until launch day, which I hope will be sometime next month. I’ve been working day in and day out on it — staying up long hours in many cases. Trust me, I think you will be floored by what you will see in the coming weeks.
I do, however, need to make a very important clarification. Someone alluded to something I said in the FAQ section on the site about how I do the illustrations, and I said that I drew everything — templates, letters, numbers, logos — by hand in MS Paint. That was actually true in the ORIGINAL version of the site that I did back in 2002. In later versions, including the one I’m working on right now, I took the logos from various sites on the Internet, adjusted the colors to blend in with the shades I use for each jersey, size them in correct proportion, and place them onto the jersey. So, no, I am no longer hand-drawing each logo. I should have changed the FAQ section on the current site (it will be retired when the new site is launched). I hope this clarifies things a bit.
In any event, I’m looking forward to releasing the new site in the next few weeks. And I’m also working on an iPhone version. Anyone here skilled in Apple Xcode?
I’m looking forward to the launch of the new and improved website.
