Prior versions of this site, up to and including the current iteration. mezzoblue began as a thought and a series of mockups in 2001, but didn’t officially launch as a real site until February 2002. (Please don’t email me about broken links on these pages; they’re to be expected.)
- v6 — The contemporary phase.
Dec 2006 – (present)
You are here.
- v5 — The don’t-change-horses-mid-race phase.
Aug 2004 – Dec 2006
A design that lasted longer than expected. Perhaps because I was fond of it, or perhaps because I simply didn’t come up with anything better, this one called Wintermint ran for over 2 and a half years.
- v4 — The inscrutable phase.
May 2004 – Aug 2004
An attempt to introduce something new, this one called Proton was launched to a mixed reception. This snapshot is incomplete and buggy, but you get the idea.
- v3 — The IPO phase.
Feb 2003 – May 2004
A long life for this sturdy, dependable design, dubbed Radar. The layout and content types evolved over the year it adorned mezzoblue; this snapshot comes from earlier on in its life cycle.
- v2 — The weblog phase.
Nov 2002 – Feb 2003
A very lightly tweaked (but heavily designed) Movable Type install. Teeth-cutting experimentation at its finest, I’m still fond of this frustratingly inflexible design.
- v1 — The ‘undefined’ phase.
Nov 2001 – Jul 2002
Was it a portfolio piece? A publication? Something else? After mezzoblue was launched, the site itself lacked focus and frequent updates for some time.
