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.

N.B. Regarding certain quotations used on this site: I recognize the modern controversy following some of the quoted figures. I further recognize the potentially harmful beliefs these figures held in their time. In quoting them, it is not my intention to glorify or demonize. Rather, I cite their discrete thoughts, which represent a moment of interesting thinking, as separate from their total biography.
