A Trip Down WWW Memory Lane

Won’t you join me on a brief trip down Impression Media Group website memory lane?

Impression Media Group Site ca. 2004:

Notice the drop shadows, and the narrow page design for the then lowest common denominator monitor size of ¬†800 x 600 pixels. A peek at the html code would reveal nested tables upon nested tables with lots of background fills. Ahhhh, the early 2000’s :-)

Jump ahead to Impression Media Group ca. 2007:

The drop shadows are (mostly) gone and gradients are given a prominent place. Custom photos are featured throughout the site, and the logo remained unchanged for six years.

Which brings us to today, and Impression Media Group ca. 2010:


New logo. New site technology: WordPress content management system rather than html pages built using a graphical editor. No gradients. Drop shadows only on featured graphics (I still love ’em!)

What a difference six years makes! It’s a great exercise to reflect upon my changes in experience and style over the years.

How have you grown and changed in experience and style over the years? What has remained as a style constant for you during those years?
