Website redesign!

I recently implemented a new website. It’s minimal, a single page, concise.

I decided my previous website was too convoluted for what I needed, and it was a passion project anyway. I needed something more practical. This new one was built in little more than an hour. The previous one was still not finished after most of a year. Not that it was too complex, but there were enough little details that I felt compelled to finesse them constantly.

The website was sort of an experiment in what I liked to call “Neo-classical web design,” in that it took a lot of design cues from site from the early web, but incorporated some modern functionality and polish. I liked the look of it a lot, and I’m sad to see it go, but it’s for the best.

I acquired an old copy of Adobe Photoshop (maybe 5.0?), and imported a few photos of me for use on the website. I altered the color and played with compression and .gif formats, I love the look that it comes out with. I probably could have done it with a modern version, but it felt more authentic with the more primitive version.

Old website archived here. It’s slightly broken after being moved, but mostly intact.
