Michelle Weekes (formerly Lamothe) is wired2grafix. No, seriously … I am!

Wired2grafix was launched in the spring of 2005. The design concept was created and developed by yours truly … Michelle Weekes.

inspiration

A lifetime passion for all forms of art, prompted the study of graphic design at Canadore College in North Bay, Ontario for me. This was "back in the day" when the web was a brand new form of media.

Much later, I completed a web design and development program at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario. And … wow … has the web ever come a long way since " back in the day"!

We studied the works of gurus such as : Jeffrey Zeldman, Dave Shea, Eric Meyers, Dan Cederholm, Lynda Weinman, Kelly Goto, etc. Just to name a few.

Here, I developed a mastery of programs such as : Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, Macromedia Flash and Dreamweaver.

Here, I was continually inspired and challenged by my graphic design instructor, Lisa Ross (formerly McMillan) to keep pushing the limits to the max.

And it was here that my passion for the use of CSS based layouts, XHTML and standards had its humble beginnings.
