I didn't get involved in web design until 1997, when I took over maintenance for the site of Maximizer Technologies in Vancouver. (Previously, I had written web content, but never created any HTML or web images.) The next year I redesigned the site, and a year after that (in 1999) I even wrote about how we put it together.
So, back to that first commercial site. It was hand-coded, and there were frames and FONT tags galore, of course. It's only in the Internet Archive now, and some of the images are broken, but you'll get the idea:
- Maximizer Technologies, Inc. 1997-98
The 1998 redesign, entirely my fault (and again, many broken links and graphics):
- Maximizer by Multiactive 1998-99
Here's an earlier (1996) version I worked on, but only a little:
- Maximizer 1996
More frames! With scroll bars! And a scrolling marquee in the status bar! Optimized for Netscape 3!
I also preserved a copy of my own site from that same era:
- Derek Miller 1998
