Behold! A new day brings a new website for you to munch on with your morning crumpets! I give you Sideshow.
“What is this?” you might ask, coffee dribbling down your chin. Well, what you see before you is the culmination of years, yes years, of work. Now you may be saying, “Years? S’ok… I guess”. Until now, Sideshow has been the on again, off again, started, then stopped birth child of the creative department where I maintain employ, TMX. It has taken many (many) forms over the years (most before I even started here), but none have ever seen the light of day. The main goal of the site was to give us a place to fool around, post junk we like, and experiment, especially those poor souls in our department without sites of their own.
So, this is the semi-scaled down version that may actually be maintainable by us! Seek and you will find: an area where we will post some of the jobs we do here at TMX, a News area sporting disembodied heads of your favorite TMX employees, an art section updated (hopefully) every week with fantastical voting functionality, and last, but certainly not least, a beautifully animated masthead.
I am so relieved the site has gone live, it has been quite a long process. Send your love and thanks to Kevin for the illustrations and animation, Terry Wall for the dynamic back-end mastery and wonderful flash integration, and er… me, for the luscious design. I realize it isn’t teeming with content yet, but it will be in the coming weeks. We hope you enjoy, please come back often.
