Previous Styles

I semi-regularly redesign this site as a sort-of ergotherapy. This is a overview of the iterations it’s gone through.

2021-12: “Toad”

after almost a year of not doing a whole lot with this page, another redesign. i keep coming back to Charter for some reason. it’s just a really nice font i suppose. also, the page is now hosted under instead of dot systems for various reasons.

2021-02: “Totally Not The Swiss”

I really liked the giant NB flag from “Manual Override”, the rest, not so much. Especially the rotated header got tiring rather quickly. So, let’s see how it looks with a font that totally isn’t Helvetica1!

2020-12: “Manual Override”

Inspired by this video, a step away from 3D. Throwback to “Chartered” by adding an even more obvious pride flag as a design element. At long last, a change in fonts! Charter is gone and has been replaced by Latin Modern Roman and Cooper Hewitt. Removed the favicon again. I have been told it looks like “an 80’s computer manual”.

2020-11: “95 Luftballons”

Add some 3D effects/box shadows. Center everything in boxes. With shadows. Font choice unmodified. First appearance of hover footnotes. Also, i added a favicon.

2020-09: “Nine Nine Nine Nine Nine Nine…”

Reorganization into a grid-based layout. The primary background color is now the default desktop color of a certain ancient operating system.

2020-07: “Chartered”

Based on Charter, light-gray background, and a gradient strip in pan pride colors on the left. Has a dark theme with eigengrau background.

Who knows what came before. I’m bad at remembering stuff.
