Irony of the webdesign

On my last job i did a site for some big portuguese company, together with a well-known atelier and a designer. I believe we all did a good job, the design is fantastic, the site was validating 100%, and used some nice javascript libraries like scriptaculous.

Time went by, i have moved working to another firm (now hacking 64bit with all 100% microsoft software from c# and .net to sql server 2005 – i have no answer how did i manage to finish on the 64bit, i had no choice), the designer who has worked with me, left the firm several weeks before me – i think for both of us it was for the better … the site started to be maintained by the people who worked at the company … It is something i am not really proud to show to any of my friends, who understands webdesign and standards, without starting to explain, that the lately work is not mine, that all those </font>, which appear without any invitation, that the images are not aligned and only a blind would not see it(the real problems is the absence of the knowledge of the developers), <script language=”boolcrap”> etc …

As i was connected by the contract – i could not mention the name of the firm, but as i am free from that contract i don’t want to mention it, because i am not proud at all of what one could see at the very first page … This is what i call an irony of the webdesign – when you do a good job, you cant tell about it, but when you can – you are not proud at all …

Maybe i should call the developer and give some tips … Perhaps after that i would even link that page to this site …
