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).
Registered ezCREATE ® as my media production business AND www.ezcreate.com.au 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.
Began building unofficial website for 5Kix FM90.7
Released website for my new business: Mow&Wash
Redesigned LSBeez and ezCREATE using HTML5 & CSS3 elements & attributes.
