Previous designs

Over the years - with a long pause - I've made a few attempts at making my personal homepage (most of them not on this domain).
Below, the ones I could find are listed with screenshots and the years I've spent maintaining them.
You might be able to see demos/live versions on the Projects page.

Immediate Predecessor (2019-2023)

Before the current version of my homepage, I tried a more minimalistic approach.
I still think that, especially for the dark design, it can work for sites with less content, but in the end it wasn't for me.

Historical Predecessors (2009-2013)

Before a looong pause in which I focused on non-web-projects, I quite enjoyed working on my homepage.
There were a few "designs" (remember: I was still a kid) which were heavily influenced by the early 00s-eraesque "Just put anything on your homepage and make sure you have a different background picture on every page" approach.
I actually experimented a lot in that time, so I really don't even know if there were more designs crawling around or when they've been online exactly.

Screenshot of my homepage between 2009 and early 2010, more or less a simple frame-based link directory.

The green clock in the header was a Flash animation!
Screenshot of my homepage around 2010 - actually in the same neon theme!
Homepage around 2010, with more of a full-page experience™ (without the use of frames) - actually the base for neon theme of the website you're on!.
Screenshot of my homepage between around
            2011 and 2013, still a simple layout, but a lot more colors and an image in the background.
Homepage between around 2011 and 2013, still a simple layout, but now with real background images (and a lot more chaotic design).
