ColorCodes website

Uploaded a small project today that I have been working on for a while.

The site is called ColorCodes, and it makes it a bit easier to choose colors for your next web project. The site shows you about 300 different colors and shades of colors. It also gives you the name for all the colors.

With just a quick click with your mouse, you can copy the colors hex codes to your clipboard for easy pasting into your code.

Go check it out at : http://peterahlgren.com/colorcodes

You can also fork the site on github: https://github.com/ahlgren1234/colorcodes

Hectic is in the App Store

My new iOS game, Hectic, is now in the Apple App Store. It went through the review process without any problems on the first try.

As usual as soon as you go live with a new project, you get a lot of ideas about stuff that you want to change. So did I this time. I have a list with stuff that I will correct and change in an update that will come pretty soon. But if you install the game now, you will get a little notice in the app when the update is online, so you will not miss it.

I have also started to sketch a new game, that I will slowly start working on any day now.

Have a look at Hectic at the official website for the game, http://hecticthegame.com.

100 projects in 100 days

Whenever feeling you have a bit too much to do, start another great project.

Today I started up a new personal project of mine. The idea is that in (hopefully) 100 days, I will create 100 small(ish) projects, and upload to this website. It doesn’t matter what it is. It can be a photograph, a small website, some small experimental JavaScript code, an app, or just about anything that kickstarts my creativity.

My inspiration for this project comes from Jennifer Dewalt’s 180 websites in 180 days and the Give it 100-website.

Check it out, and I will try to have something new for you everyday for 100 dyas from today.

I’m working for free!

I have been away from the freelancing side of the web design business for too long now. That’s why I’m now offering my services for free or almost free. If you have some small graphics design or front end web design project that you want me to help you with, just contact me. All I want from you, is a good review if you are happy with the result.

I’m not going to do it completely for free if it is a larger project. But if it’s quite small, I can do it for free.

 

Design work

Although I’m a programmer from the start, I have done quite some webdesign and graphics design over the years. It’s quite fun to mix up all the coding with some work in Photoshop or Illustrator.

I have some friends singing and playing in a metal band, called Avocation. I have helped them with designing some cd envelops through the years. Here are some examples:
