December 2002

The year 2003 brings you the official launch of this website. This site has already gained wide recognition by an audience that served as the test-team during recent months. As a result this site has received a sponsorship by Remondo and will be hosted for your conveniance on their hightech servers.

October 2002

The drums start to shake, rattle and roll as we are heading towards the launch of this site. Serve, Publish and Connect are ready, so you are only waiting for the portfolio to take its final shape. Also check out the latest News.

September 2002

Enchant is ready and Prove too. So I am getting on with filling in the latest blinds spots, working through the portfolio, getting the forum and the forms ready to roll and collecting the latest responses of my testteam of friends and aquaintances.

July 2002

More work to be done: The portfolio is slowly growing. Next to the establishment of the overview of this huge collection of images of works done recently or in the past, there is even more work to be done: writing the  enchant series about enchanting the personal, enchantment by strategy, design, art and writing. As the pieces are re-written again and again, their impact is improved.

June 2002

At this point this site is beyond half of it's production proces. The first four entries are ready now and I've installed the site's search engine and the forum. As the portfolio get's filled in there's still a lot of work to be done. This site contains content. That is why it's a big job to get it all together, aspecially if you do most of it alone. As it grows and I experience the excitement the site raises in the happy few that got a first look at it, I guess it's worth the investment.

January 2002

Somewhere at the start of the year 2002 I started to make the templates and visual concepts for this site. Then the big work started: To collect all of my notes and start with the proces of making the concept turn into an implemented idea: The making of a  website that gives the visitor a chance to get a closer look at the experiences, thoughts and ideas that live inside a designers mind.

December 2001

About two years later I discovered the website of the IVREA institute and by surfing around I came up to the url of Nathan Shedroff. It was on her site that I discovered an article about the personal website that reflected most of my personal insights. This article also made my confidence grow about my personal intentions.

Summer of 1999


The idea for this site was born during the year 1999 when I was working at Keja Donia Design in Amsterdam. In those days I was reflecting on the nature of the personal website. 

The sites that fit the description of the personal website are usually made up of facts and features at random. In fact establishing a structure and a philosophy for a personal homepage is rare.

This situation made me develop my personal thoughts on the subject of the personal homepage. From that point in the summer of 1999 I started to make notes, collect ideas and images and slowly an outline emerged. The subjects that seemed important to me were grouped into a scheme. A scheme that serves today as the main navigation of this site. This scheme was then subdived in the parts that serve as a subnavigation on every page.
