AGATHEHD.COM
Developed between September 2000 and january 2001 – agatheHD.com was the first portfolio website designed and built by FL@33's very own Agathe Jacquillat. It presented projects using icons and appearances from Mac OS 9's interface and Photoshop's version at the time.
___ This concept helped to create an instant contrast between emotionally more neutral, technological associations and Agathe's mostly analogue, often handmade experiments, illustrations and projects.
___ The 'HD' was associated with the word 'Hard Drive' at the time – rather than the 'High Definition' we think of today. Entering the website almost felt like intruding a private environment – like accidentally hacking Agathe's personal computer. The audience was invited to explore Agathe's projects and to find the concept to be designed with the ambition to surprise the viewer with a huge amount of amusing and interesting details.
___ The website was ideally explored using a Mac with the OS 9 of the time – although the 'hacking aspect' must have been even stronger when visiting the site on a Windows machine. Nowadays the website provokes a touch of nostalgia for all those who experienced previous operating systems. But just have a look – an archive version is still online: agatheHD.com (Please note that the website does include a few Flash elements – including the classic Macintosh boot sequence and sound – that might not run on today's iPads etc.)
