Hi, my name is Brandon Morrison, and I’m a web designer living in Mishawaka, Indiana with my wife and two cats. I grew up in Tennessee and still claim it as my home turf. Depending on the situation, I can claim any section of the state, although I do have a special place in my heart for Memphis.
I went to school at Middle Tennessee State University and graduated with a degree in Media Design (think journalism + graphic design - historical context). I spent most of my college career chasing after girls who would have nothing to do with me and being king nerd at Sidelines, the student newspaper at MTSU. I’d consider most of the people I hung out with there family, even though I don’t reach out enough.
After graduating from MTSU, I worked for two years in Memphis, Tennessee at the Commercial Appeal. While I was there, I spent time with a bunch of interesting characters and developed an unhealthy obsession with Craig Brewer and Christina Ricci. I still don’t understand the town’s obsession with Elvis, but I do love me some BBQ nachos.
My then-fianceé and I moved to Indiana in the winter of 2008 so that she could study geology at the University of Notre Dame. Despite being here longer than I lived in Memphis, I’ve never really felt comfortable here, but I’m working on that.
About this site
Brandonmorrison.com is built on Drupal. The lifestream is powered by Development Seed’s excellent Feeds module, while the rest of the site is a pretty standard Drupal stack. The typeface for the banner is Blackout, while the rest of the site is set in Lato. This is the forth or fifth version of the site, and while I’d like to think that I’ll keep it around for awhile, I’m not making any promises.
