I designed my very first webpage in 1996. It had a midi sountrack and some of the pre-eminent animated GIFs of the day and it was a lot of fun to create. Of course, I didn't know a thing about actual coding, but a friend offered me a crash course in how to steal other people's souces and make it my own. This would prove to be a valuable lesson for a future filmmaker although I didn't have such a profound perspective at the time.
Over the following years I stole a lot of code to make a lot of different web pages. In fact, the last iteration of robkraetsch.com was a derivative of hand-stolen code. Alas, after all these years I believe myself to be enough of a professional to accept that I know how to properly break the rules and can fall back on the good people at wix.com to do the lions share of the stealing for me.
I hope you all enjoy the new format. It somehow feels a little less cohesive as a singular product to me, but it should certainly be more in-tune with modern design standards.
