Our first personal site existed as a playground for honing our Flash and design skills. Sadly, only the last iteration can still be found in the archives.
It began as straight HTML with an image map (yup, very old school). Then we moved on to Flash and played with fonts and simple animations. We used pixel-perfect fonts that were specially made for Flash because they were the only ones that would display clearly. We also used our own custom font for parts of the project. Any images we had on the site were taken by us or modified by us (liberal use of Photoshop).
