Here I've collected old site designs that I still like, but don't use. Feel free to steal the designs for your own projects; I'd love to see these get used, so send me an email! You can find more of my work here.
Modernist, light-on-dark personal site design. I decided I wanted to be able to add descriptions to the links on my personal site, which doesn't work with this design. [ link ] [ screenshot ]
A very dynamic interface, rich in color, that separates the content into sections. I realized my personal site doesn't have enough content to meaningfully split into sections. [ link ] [ screenshot ]
Design inspired by print magazines, using CSS3's element rotation. Unfortunately, in 2010 the only browser that can render this nicely is Safari (screenshot is of Firefox 3.5 on Linux), or else I'd be using this. [ link ] [ screenshot ]
