Speaking of re-designs.

Speaking of re-designs. Doc Ozone has a new "front end." Or, it's new to me, as I haven't been there in a few months. This guy is nuts... he's a U.I. maniac. Not sure where he's concentrating his efforts these days. He was working in Europe for a bit. One can pick up a lot of inspiration from this complex site. Look's like he's added a discussion forum too.

Man, I remember discovering his site back in '97, before DHTML was the hottest kid on the block. You can pretty much lose your entire afternoon cruising through the depths of his crazy site.

The guy practically invented smooth-looking bevelled graphics on the web. Have a look at his ol' school stuff.

i am totally impressed. i remember his background archive from 1995. whoa! major changes.

ironically, i didn't enter the site because (and this is just personal) when i see intensely layered stuff like this i tend to admire the front page for a long time, and then leave. this is not a put-down of the work. it's amazing work. i'm sure i'll go back. this is just my personal reaction to heavy-duty manipulation of layers.

i admire them like i admire once-upon-a-forest.com. and then i feel tired, and think it's too much of a commitment to actually enter the site.

like i said, that's just me.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

Well, once upon a time it was a good thing. If web design trends move like trends in print and clothing, it'll be back someday. Thanks to him and Andy's Art we'll all know how to do it when it's hip again.

I actually interviewed for my first web designer job with the Doc back in '97 when he was the man at visi.com. Now that would have been a kick ass job, too bad I had so little html experience then...
