Home > Other bits and bobs > 27 squares (animation, 1999-2001)

These are things from the first couple of years of FFF, which I look back at with vague fondness, but also not without slight embarrassment.
They are a bunch of animated GIFs that used to grace the "splash" page that FFF had, all using 27 squares arranged into 3x3 squares and garnished with various forms of blinking, wobbling, flashing, growing, contracting, changing colour, etc.
Some of the animations are crude, some of the ideas are kinda lame, but at the time I know I enjoyed making them and, on the whole, enjoyed the results.

(Apologies in advance if you wanna look at them all: there's a buttload of hitting the 'back' button to do.)
