Back when IE 5 was God
I’m a bit of a digital pack rat. I have files going back over a decade of website and design work. Some of it freelance, some of it contract, some of it as a full time employee. It was fun going though what, I thought at the time, was good design work.
Graphic design and illustration is a little like fashion. There are recognizable trends as you go through the past. I thought I’d post some of my old work for everyone to enjoy. Or laugh at. 🤷🏻♂️
Flash websites and “splash pages” were all the rage when I first started out. Since I no longer have Flash player installed there’s no easy way to view those files anymore. Suffice to say I was very proficient with Action Script.
I was working full time for a creative company when I designed this website for WestJet. I believe they actually ended up using this design. Would you look at those old Mac OS scroll bars!
This was a site I built for a music teacher and composer. You can get a glimpse of my old logo in the bottom left corner.
This one makes me cringe. I never did launch this rebrand of my personal site (thank god).
I didn’t do any of the logo work or branding there. The client simply wanted a clean website.
Maybe next time I’ll post some of my old logo and branding work.
