Vitaflo v6 is an open information web design project developed by Brent Gustafson. Its main focus is to aid in the experimentation of web design by the design community at large. Its also been created under the premise that, while most experimental design sites succeed in terms of bringing new graphic experiences to the user, many fail when it comes to offering solid content on how the graphic process is achieved. While vitaflo does not aim to solve this problem outright, its goal is to aid in the notion that open information can be a Good Thing(tm) even in the otherwise closed realm of experimental web design.
Vitaflo v1 was originally created in March of 1997 as a personal experiment site and has since gone through 5 revisions to get to where it is today, version 6, launched on 17 December 1999. It is run primarily by myself (html, perl, graphics, etc) along with a few others who, from time to time, contribute to cover designs, projects, etc. The navigation font, Silkscreen, is care of Jason Kottke, and system administration is done by the great Jesse O'Neill-Oine. Vitaflo is part of Redcouch.org, which is hosted on Scully, a 350mhz AMD K6-2 with 128Mb of RAM, running Apache/1.3.6 (Unix) ApacheJServ/1.0 on Linux. Bandwidth is supplied graciously by Imaginet LLC.
