My (small, private) school recently spent who knows what to hire a
professional web design company to make their new webpage (which is a
marketing tool as much as anything). The previous version had been made by
students in a class a couple of years ago and wasn't too bad, though it
needed a professional touch.
Anyhow, the new website is really poor. While the main page is pretty neat,
the pictures throughout the site are awful, the design is really inadequate
and it's difficult to coordinate updates.
Since I've gotten into web design and know the basics and a little more,
this has really, really bothered me and so I've talked with the headmaster
about it. He's interested in having me take it over once the school year
starts and while I'm excited about this, I betcha there won't be any extra
compensation for it!
But I'd rather do it and put something together that the school can be proud
of and that can be updated frequently and easily than continue to use
something that really needs improvement. Besides, it will give me a chance
to continue to develop my skills as a web designer.
So I agree with Patti that maybe Bunki needs to "volunteer" to do the work
and view it as a trade-off: You'll get "on the job training" and hone your
skills and not have to pay to take a class on web stuff. Just a thought...
