Birmingham Olympic Soccer Website
Whenever I speak with a potential client, I mention my web bona fides by letting them know that I have been designing websites since the mid-1990s. For those of you keeping score, this is when the commercial internet took off, and companies had the technology, and incentive, to create their own websites. From time to time, I get the feeling that they don’t believe me.
2021 was the 25th Anniversary of the Atlanta Olympic Games and Olympic soccer in Birmingham. I had the privilege of designing a website for the Birmingham games. What is special about it to me is that Atlanta was the first Olympic website created, and Birmingham was the second.
I came across a picture in the Birmingham Olympic Soccer newsletter of the website. I wanted to celebrate this website and post it on my portfolio page. It wasn’t the first one I created, but it was the most important websites I made by that time.
