New Landing Page

Rasul Kireev @rasulkireev

I tend to make these posts very formal. Personally, I like to read Milestones and posts that are more on the informal side, so I will try to do that exactly.

I decided to give Carrd.co a try. Their annual PRO plan is only $19/y. I was lucky to stumble upon the Black Friday deal and snatched it at $9/m.

So, I have successfully rebuilt the landing page for kushim.io. I am not 100% happy with the outcome, but the improvement is incredible.

While working with Carrd I have realized that my problem is not the technical execution (although, that can be improved), but rather lack of creativity. Lack of a visual goal in mind. I have no idea what I want and, therefore, no idea of how to make it. "Stealing" from other makers is sometimes an option, but that somehow feels wrong and at the same time, hard.

In any case, the landing page is done. Only a couple more things need to be added, and I will begin the "launch" process and see where this leads me.

If you have any ideas or resources you could share that will help me bump up my creativity issues, I will really appreciate it. I have read the following:

  • Refactoring UI, by Adam Wathan & Steve Schoger
  • Design Techniques by Area 17
  • Don't Make Me Think by Steve Krug
  • The Design of Everyday Things by Don Norman

Thanks a ton in advance. You guys are the best.
