Under Construction

The process of progress

What if something was designed one day, one change at a time? What if every day, it got just a tiny bit better? With time, revealed more of itself?


This project explores the ideas of continuous improvement, impermanance, and gradual transitions.

It’s inspired by Web 1.0 Under Construction GIFs, Wikipedia, Thing a Week, Song a Day, Atomic Habits, HRT, the IndieWeb movement, and CSS Zen Garden.

Process

  1. Start with the minimal markup and styles needed.
  2. Make one small change to the styles every day.
  3. Change markup, structure, and rules whenever.

Progress

Each change will be documented here with a dated commit and screenshot.
