I was going through some old project files and uncovered this little time capsule: my website from 2004. Initially I was horrified, but then decided these old designs were kind of endearing. Back then I lived in St. Louis in the Central West End, and I was obsessed with the Art Deco architecture in the neighborhood and the buildings that were left behind from the 1904 World’s Fair in Forest Park. Unfortunately I did a terrible job reproducing that in my designs, but at the time I thought I was very clever for adding a button to switch between day and night themes and creating a horizontal scrolling layout.

In tables. Because that’s how I rolled in 2004.
