It's 10am and I am on my second cup of coffee... I can already see it is going to be one of those days. I have not been writing because I have been on vacation and then after returning a month ago I have not been writing because I have been trying to catch up with client work as well as manage a stream of new clients and projects. It has been intense but I think I am getting back to some sort of a rhythm.
I have been working on an Inventory management application called Trade Journal. While the development is progressing I put up a splash page, my intention is to capture the contact information of those interested in the application before it is ready so I can get a handful of users from day one. So I designed this page.
In that vein, I created the Trade Journal page to animate a confetti drop whenever someone signs up.I tested it with a couple of friends while talking to them on the phone and I either heard them gasp or exclaim "ooooooooooh nice!". It was fun hearing their reactions to the surprise, which immediately validated to me that I am going down the right path for creating an application that is an experience and not just a boring data entry tool. That's my goal with Trade Journal, to make something that has some character and hopefully put some joy into someone's otherwise boring day.
