yeah, I'm talking to you!

yeah, I'm talking to you!

I’ve been a busy susie lately. I’ve uploaded and launched my first E-Commerce website –
dakotamercantile.com
It was like a first-born to me. I’m a Graphic designer by trade and web developer hobbist, although I am considering switching the two.

I’ve picked up a little gig as webmaster for
micanopychamber.com
and am in 4th gear for SEO the websites I’m working on. Amazing, you can get paid for the little things you don’t even think of.

Everyday is a new learning experience. I’m loving it and …hating it. It seems most of my colleagues are ‘graphic’ designers and most of my recent troubleshooting is regarding web and coding. “the technical” stuff. Good thing there’s the internet 🙂

I’m freelancing, serving at Red Lobster, packing/moving and trying to saviour the last days I have here in Gainesville before I make my move to Tampa. Multi-tasking is def a plus!

I’ve been pulling all-nighters that turned into dayers and all dayers that turned into all-nighters. The cushion on my chair literal is imprinted to my rear and my thoughts are constantly clouded with solutions, software, debugging and a sitemap in my mind of whats next with what.

I have to say..Life is finally getting fun again 😉

Hi Everyone – Just an update what I.M. Designs & Ink Martyr Graphics has done and what to come.

3) Networks, Los Angeles CA, a Caterer to the Stars requested a flyer to be created for Father’s Day and Graduation (in progress)

Tampa bound

Posted: May 12, 2009 in Dakota Mercantile, FL, Gainesville, Tampa

Its official. I’m moving to Tampa. I pick up my keys the 17th of this month and I’m off to a new adventure. I’m looking forward to meeting other designers and businesses alike and plan to get some networking done once I’m settled in.


Gainesville community has been kind and memorable to me. I’ve met a lot of sincere and great people who have been my clients later friends and vice versa. I graduated from college here and have shared some of the college sports victories and loses.

I will miss this great place but am optimistic of the future.
