One Page Love turns 10 🎂

One Page Love turns 10

Yoh! What a milestone, One Page Love turns 10 years old today!

I never imagined One Page Love would be my full time job when I started it back in 2008.

I’m busy putting together something rad for next week (watch it here) but thought I’d share a few snippets of the early days.

How did the name come about?

Here is the email brainstorming names a month before launch with my good friend Andrew (we had a digital agency at the time called Hit Delete). The name was based off CSS Mania and a niche Moveable Type website collection:

And finally here the 2008 design of One Page Love – note the 31 March “official launch” notification at the top even though the site was launched. This was an excuse for actually launching with stuff broken ha!

What a ride it’s been and it’s difficult to put into words how grateful I am for the strong community over the years. Drop me a mail or tweet if you were around for the old versions of the site:)

Much love,
Rob
