This was done in the summer after my second year of undergraduate school. I had just been introduced to website design the semester before, and this was something I did for fun, and to continue my own education on the subject. I still like this design, even though my style has changed quite a bit since then. You will notice the signature graphic I was fond of from the Creaux Graphix post. This version of the design was the original, and the colors were then inverted.
What I find most interesting about this design, is how much of it is still alive in my current website. The dotted background for texture, the simple color scheme with cools and greys, and even the menu is very similar! Weird how that works out sometimes.
