Design Evolution of This Website
V8 - November 2022 — Present - VROOM, VROOM, V8! I kind of made this design because I was miffed about something. The hex pattern I made in a vector editing program, then made some tweaks by editing the raw SVG code, and finally putting it through an SVG optimizer.
V7 - August 2022 — October 2022 - This theme isn't my original idea, it's based off of 4chan's Yotsuba B theme, a.k.a. the "blue board" theme. For Hatsune Miku's birthday I had a Miku-themed version of this design.
V6 - April 2022 — July 2022 - I figured out the general idea for this design while taking a bath at half past nine in the evening. Decided to make a "less is more" minimalist design for this version. Breaking my convention of using my LH logo as a header in my post-V1 designs for the first time. Now using a header which has "Hifumi" spelled out in hiragana. The font it uses is Zen Maru Gothic. I still love black & yellow, and you can find those in this design if you know where to look.
V5 - November 2021 — March 2022 - Brought back a V2-like style with this, but now it is significantly more polished and professional-looking. The background patterns are SVG so they load fast and look great on high resolution screens. The LH logo at the top of the page has been switched from PNG to SVG for the same reasons. I unified the design of a lot of different pages which had their own style to simplifiy the whole site and make it so that there would be fewer jarring changes when jumping between pages.
V4 Spooky - October 2021 - Just V4 New with a spooky scary halloween/spooktober theme.
V4 New - Late Summer 2021 - I changed the default font from Arial to Verdana, and polished up the V4 design so it wouldn't look like a barely modified version of V3. Also added icons to the homepage about a week before I made this update.
V4 Old - Summer 2021 - I wanted to have my website design to have my favourite black & yellow colour theme, but also be bright. I also shrank the size of my "LH" icon at the top, because it was kind of obnoxiously huge in V3 and V2.
V3 - Spring 2021 - I wanted a design that was bright and "natural" themed, and this what I ended up with. The top banner photo is a photo of Taiwan's mountains. And the content boxes are supposed be like paper. During the time of the V3 design was also when I started making pages with their own unique designs that didn't use the homepage theme.
V2 - Winter 2021 - This was the design I liked the most before I got bored of it. I really like the black with yellow highlights aesthetic a lot. This design introduced my "LH" logo to the world wide web. V2 is also when I collected and made my own 88x31 buttons.
V1 - Fall 2020 - Haha, dancing letters go brrr. The green colour in the title is #69DEAD 😉 This was a simple design I threw together quickly to hold the content I wished to share with the world. It didn't even have "subhead" elements which I added in V2. However, V1 and all subsequent designs were 100% mobile friendly thanks to the simplicity of my design and my knowledge of CSS @media queries. This page still uses my V1 design.
V0 - September 2020 - Although it was my first proper design, V1 was not how my website looked on day 1. I briefly had a design with a lot random anime GIFs and an "under construction" message. What it looked like was lost to time though. My old 404 page is the closest thing resembling my website in the very early days.
