The first version of this site launched on March 26, 2002. It was primarily a portfolio site aimed at finding work in the wake of the dot-com collapse, and it was built in Flash, so none of its posts can be reached in their original context by direct link. The site’s blog component (powered by Blogger) was housed in a tiny, scrolling “News” box inspired by those found on popular design portals like k10k and Surfstation. Posts, archived as monthly digests, were untitled, brief, somewhat scattered updates on my activities.
