Another Chat with Lou Brutus

Lou Brutus is an exceptional on-air personality. He extends his talent to the on-line world. He was gracious enough to give me his time to chat about all things digital for this week’s All Access column.

Chuck Armstrong: How did you approach the redesign of LouBrutus.com? It isn’t uncommon to stumble on personal sites that are more just a landing page to Facebook and Twitter links. LouBrutus.com is about as far away from that as it could be. Did you always have it in mind to make your site super content heavy?

Lou Brutus: I wanted the site to reflect all of my professional experience, the wealth of adventures I’ve had and all of the creative projects I’ve been involved with. I’ve been very fortunate in that I’ve traveled extensively and worked with many phenomenal artists. That I’ve kept good documentation gave me a ton of material to incorporate. From the beginning, I’ve wanted to have a site that could include as much of this as possible without making it unwieldy, slow or awkward to surf. It was a matter of deciding how to breakdown all of the content and disseminate it in a common sense way. That I found a great designer in Josh Lippman was very fortunate. He and I were able to work together to meld all of this into a coherent site with a comic book graphic feel. I think it encompasses my career very well. I hope so anyway.
