The short but sweet creative process behind my new web presence

Screenshot of Atlantis Worlds Fair by Frank Chimero

I saw Frank Chimero's Atlantis World's Fair (pictured above) and thought to myself, this is great. I want one.

I brainstormed how I could apply it to my own website.

Days later, I drew a sketch:

Sketch 1 for hongkonggong.com

And another one:

Sketch 2 for hongkonggong.com

A week passed. I woke up feeling pretty good one morning (a rarity) and drew this:

Sketch 3 for hongkonggong.com

…it ran over to the next page…

Sketch 3 continued

After that, it was just a matter of drawing it up in Adobe Illustrator:

Which is almost exactly as it is now.

Several days of HTML, CSS and jQuery ensued. Results here.
