Pictures of The Web (Circa 2008): Pt. I

This is the first part of the collection of websites that I enjoyed visually and used as inspiration in my own practice, eight years ago. Hope this helps as a refresher of how much our industry has changed (or not).

Featured work

I work here as Product Manager building features and improving the site in many ways. is a online freeform self-expression space I’m contributing to. Anybody can participate without registering or revealing their identity.


Coleure started as a simple curated color picker. Later a 10K submission. Now it’s turning into a premium color management tool.
