20 Years Since My First Web Project

1998 marked a significant year in the life of ADC Online or ADC Marketing, which was our trading name prior to becoming a limited company.

In 1998 we built our first website (or at least I did) Luke was 1 at the time.

It was for an industrial packaging company that produced the blue plastic drums that are still used for transporting chemicals, both liquid and powder.

The company has changed hands since then and now produces Green Water Butts for the gardening market.

I have an image of the front page (below). As was always the case then, the website was made to look like the company’s paper brochure, on the insistence of all concerned. How things have changed.

It was made using basic HTML and the images were kept to a minimum as it would have been viewed over a dial-up modem connection.
