WHEN YOU MOVE, WE MOVE: THE FUTURE OF WEB DESIGN

Back in 2007, when we started designing for clients, websites were not a service we provided. As more and more people asked about them we came around and adapted Worx to fit consumer needs. Ten years in, we are seeing tools like Squarespace and Wix that make it easy to set up a decent looking website. It is easy to understand why many businesses start here. With seemingly endless options for themes, automated design innovations (responsiveness, parallax scrolling, etc.), and the introduction of web design by artificial intelligence services like The Grid, it is the end of web design as we know it. The shift is moving web design to EXPERIENCE design.

LESS IS MORE.

You don’t need a lot where little would do. Lately I have been on a Konmari kick at home. For those of you who aren’t familiar – Konmari refers to the method of international organizational sensation Marie Kondo, author of the book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.” Category by category, she advises clients to go through their possessions, gathering and piling them all in one space, then physically touching each one and asking the question, “Does this spark joy?” The entire experience is life-changing because it forces you to take a step back and be honest with yourself about what is really there. If you are in denial about how many clothes you actually own – you may be in for a surprise.

THE BEST PART OF THE DAY

It sounds cliché, but having a positive attitude goes really far in creating genuine happiness. Clichés are cliché because there is a grain of truth to all of them. Recently a few of the Worx girls attended an event with Julie Gaver, who had some sage advice about depending on yourself for happiness.

Just Say Thank You_square

JUST SAY THANK YOU.

Everyone likes to be admired, but some of us have trouble accepting a compliment gracefully. Many of us have been guilty of this. Downplaying or rebuffing the compliment can backfire. Denial, deflection and self-insults can be insulting to the person that gave you kudos. They could see you as socially awkward, ungrateful or insecure.
