Here is something I was playing with when I initially wanted to make my own website. It mirrors a business card I made. My intention was to have the site and my collateral have this style identity. Everything was going to be oldtimey and appear to be letter pressed, possibly even letter-pressing some of the physical collateral (business card, envelope, letterhead). As it became more apparent that this was above my capabilities at the time I decided to start with something modular and more manageable.
Given that I have a new computer that can actually handle my attempts at illustration and design, maybe I’ll give it another shot.
