Welcome to the new Sjusjun

After some pain, trouble and quite some help. I’ve completed the redesign of my website. It’s a lot cleaner and brighter now, with more room for illustrations in the gallery. I’ve also added some mini illustrations using my favorite animal. The website is now responsive so that means it’s mobile and tablet friendly. (Thanks for the deadline Google ;) The website is now also bilingual! So from now on everything is available in Dutch and English. You can change the language through the menu. It’s a little bit more work for me (oh and double chance of me making spelling errors ;), but I hope it’s more welcoming to the visitors of this site.

Another new thing is the showcase section, hidden under the ‘Illustrations’ link in the top menu. Check out the first showcase about Book covers. I’ll be adding more showcases in the future.

There might still be some things I need to patch up on the website. So if you find something that looks broken, please let me know.

Partners and other news

Illustrations can be used for so many different things: Websites, books, animations, graphic design and more. At the same time I want to keep my focus on illustrating as much as I can. This is why I’ve added partners, to the menu above. Partners are people I can choose to work with and who I fully trust. They love what they do and are good at it. Illustrations don’t just stop at a ‘static image’. There’s so much more you can do with them! If you’re looking for ideas and solutions to do more with your website, publications, brand or identity please contact me or use the contact information on the right side.

In other news, I’ve been working on a redesign of my own website. I’m not in a hurry, since I still like my current website. But I do think it could need a little bit more colour. Also, the magic word nowadays is “responsive”. and that’s something that my current website is not. Here’s a small taste of what’s to come:

Fish and cat meet each other in this new design

My very first design of Sjusjun.com incorporated goldfishes, then the cats took over. Why not have both? :)

Finally!

So, here it is. A shiny new website. Gone is my previous (darker) website with the goldfish mascot. It wasn’t really by choice. But I tried to turn the unfortunate demise of my previous website into something positive. A lot more work has gone into this website. I hope you’ll find all the new information useful. But if you have any questions, please ask and I’ll answer :)

In the coming weeks I’ll probably fiddle some more with things. Maybe add some new sections or goodies (free wallpapers? Maybe a free brush set?). Of course I’ll keep you updated on my latest projects and illustrations. Please check back often and spread the word. It’s alive, ALIVE!
