Perspectives on Web Design
The style of this site is intentionally eclectic—in much the way my life has been happily at tangents and angles. There is, however, a throughline to my existence (i.e. removal of fear) and there are guideposts to the brand here (i.e. a nouveau-vintage style). But these rules are often purposefully violated; forced alignment side-stepped, in favor of creating a true repository for beautiful work.
Within the site there are many allusions and references to inspiration, ranging from theater (e.g. Les Miserables and Hamilton), to art deco design (e.g. Tamara Lempicka), to the scientific (e.g. Michelson-Morley experiment). There are too many to whom I am indebted, but, suffice it to say, this digital design anthology is very much the result of having stood on the shoulders of giants.
