If you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been writing much lately, there are a couple of reasons:

Firstly, I’ve been super busy at my (more or less) 9 to 6 job, consulting SEO clients and putting out fires.

Secondly, I’ve been completely redesigning my portfolio site! By now, has been totally revamped to be a lot more informative and intuitive.

So why did I redesign? In short, because I had to. The original site was a pile of loosely organized image pages that I created in a week in anticipation for visiting ad agencies back in March of 2009. And as it did not age well with its dated design and poor Information Architecture (not to mention poor SEO!), I felt it was not the best representation of myself as a professional or my abilities.

So I spent a couple of months compiling design ideas in the back of my mind and then spent a few weeks actually hand-coding and Photoshopping everything. And I must say, I’m quite proud of my work. In fact, if it weren’t so meta, I’d include my site as a piece of my portfolio on the site itself.

I feel this new design-centric and search engine and user friendly site does a much better job of conveying the duality of my professional skills.

So take a look around the new and/or improved Portfolio of Kenny Chung. Let me know if you have any suggestions, and maybe hire me for a design job sometime!

OK, I totally understand that some people dislike the advertising industry and think it’s evil and misleading capitalism. I really do understand that point of view. So sometimes having another trade to fall back on assures you that you don’t have to be in the industry, but that you choose to. For me, one of those trades is graphic design. I mean, how could yo1u say that graphic designers have bad intentions?

I have so many questions regarding how this even happened.

In one of my posts last month, I questioned how terrible graphic designers still get hired to do so much high-profile work. It doesn’t get much more high-profile than working for the FBI. For counter-terrorism.

This is just embarrassing for designers everywhere.

Well to be fair, the I in FBI doesn’t stand for intelligence…
