Hello, I’m Georgie.
Tea keeps me going. I work full-time as a web designer; I am studying for a Master’s degree in Interactive Multimedia; I sing, I dance, I write.
The meaning behind this website name? I’m indecisive. I just can’t make up my mind. You’ll find me credited as Georgina Luhur (my full name), Georgie Luhur, Georgie Celestine (Celestine is my middle name), Georgie C Luhur… but please, do, call me Georgie.
I enjoy shooting at gigs for local indie bands. If you’re in a local band and need a photographer, don’t ask. My answer is always yes. So say hello.
I blog regularly at Hey Georgie, so you can get a hold of me there. If you prefer email, shoot me one at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Old: Star Machine
Star Machine was a result of dismantling and rebuilding Velvet; it came with the desire to begin using galleries, eradicate the sidebar and post higher-resolution images. I wanted nothing more than simplicity, and a slightly textured background brought back minimal interest, the large website name drawing in a style of sorts.
I began with the working name Velvet, and it stuck. I used a childish, simple font for the navigation and the title. The layout was significantly wider than the previous, with a dynamic sidebar and a medium grey background.
Conforming to typical header-image-and-sidebar combination layouts as was the trend around 2010, I used a muted photograph of me on the beach, adorned with standard typography. The assortment of serif fonts was bundled with the use of now-frowned-upon Tahoma.
