Brown & Minimal
Site Design #8 is the oldest existing version of my site. The first seven versions have been lost to history (and onepagelove).
My first design had a very simple dark background
I was going through a “brown” phase.
I was messing around with the idea of having a background image or pattern, and I thought it'd be cool to use a photo of a page in my notebook as the background of the site.
Tested it out on Photoshop, liked the look, and it became part of my final design.
