Let this be the revival of authentic and creative web design again.
yes, please. I have become a bit sick of the sanitized webdesign. its clean, but it gets boring quickly.
i have always tried to make my own portfolio sites a bit different from whatever the web trends you have to watch is that week, and i hope more people make more interesting sites!
I love it
A little background: I wanted to switch my site off of WordPress, and my friend Jack offered to redesign it.
But... I wanted to keep the brutalist aesthetic. (I still get quite a bit of traffic from pages like this)
So we worked on making the site look like an old punk rock zine. (Complete with photocopied images, tweets, etc...)
I know it won't be for everyone, but I really dig it.
I switched to Statamic CMS from WordPress, and I'm hosting it on Digital Ocean (using Laravel Forge).
Now, did you actually photo copied the images to start the effects or all straight photoshop?
Maximum Rock and Roll!
Great design. I loved your thoughts on hosting, database, and most interestingly "sanitized design." As a creator I want to make great unique designs, but as a business person clean templates almost always win. I like to see how you're going against the grain and setting the example.
