Web Design History & Portfolio

Section 1: HISTORY

I began teaching myself basic HTML & CSS in the mid 1990's, long before the Internet was fashionable.

I have had no tertiary studies. I couldn't afford to and the people I worked for didn't believe in me.


Learned CSSx and HTMLx, graphic design, GIF animation & Adobe Dreamweaver (1998-2005).

Introduced to HTML & CSS, FRAMEs & IFRAMEs (1999). Sadly created tables within tables. Changed exclusively to external style sheets (1995).

Started reading web-design books; Realised CSS & HTML errors of many web sites (1999).


Redesigned Sturt Table Tennis Club from MS Word (2001-2011). Logo

Registered ezCREATE ® as my media production business AND as my main domain.

Designed West Beach Apex Club website (2002-2005).

Began blogging (2005). Discovered fluid designs with lots of sprites. Returned to MS Notepad.

Converted Apex SA/NT from MS-Word to HTML & CSS (2006-2007).


12 year hiatus to pursue Digital Photography, focus on family, and have a radical lifestyle change...


In mid 2018 I regained my mojo upon discovering CSS3 & HTML5. Started using NotePad++ exclusively.
