Описание: I realize right off the bat that I am going to date myself here. I began my career as a graphic designer when the web was still in its infancy. I learned paste-up techniques and created marker comps before I ever knew that same stuff could be done faster on a computer. Once I got out of school, it became apparent very quickly that those skills, while useful, were pretty much obsolete. To get with the times, I bought myself the only computer I could afford at the time, a shiny new Wintel PC, added a copy of CorelDraw, and started down the path of digital graphic design. Little did I know that many years later my print skills would rarely be put into use. Right around that same time, I got an Earthlink account and started a web page on Geocities as a playground for learning HTML, which at the time was nothing more than a curiosity.
