This site was undertaken on October 5, 2004. I have loved Aqua Teen Hunger Force since the beginning, and when I looked around on the internet, I noticed there was no good site. Even the Adult Swim website, which does have interesting things on there, does not have any good media. I wanted to create a great website to spread the love of the show to people who may not have even heard of it.
This is the first design I came up with. I was just playing around with some things and needed a visual to figure out which direction I was going to take the site. Obviously it's not exactly the greatest thing in the world, and I needed something much better before I showed it to anybody.
The second design was the one I finally settled on and went live with on October 21st of 2004. It served the site very well and was retired on December 27th, 2005. It received complaints about being too difficult to read and poor font choices, so I ultimately had to further simplify the design.
The third design was a heavily revised version of design two. It featured a cleaner content column with an added third column for recent updates or television air dates.
The fourth (and current) design was a small revision of design 3. I expanded the center column and made the text easier to read. It has been the featured design since December 24th, 2007.
