Q: Why do you have a Brutalist Website?
A: As mentioned on your site, to make a non-“Brutalist” website, you have to design and put together a lot of visual ingredients which may not actually help convey the information to the viewer. In this case it was easier and more interesting to not add those things. In some cases, adding those things does help the communication of the information. So another reason is, “It suits what I’m trying to say and my audience”. Finally, it’s fun to create things that try to contrast with omnipresent styles. The brutalist aesthetic isn’t exempt from becoming homogenized, but since it’s actively trying to disrupt I hope it would be a little harder for that to happen. Unfortunately the commodification of brutalism in web design is inevitable.

The brutalist answer to that is probably to make new works which are even more brutal, which seems to me like a great approach.
Q: Who designed the website?
A: Me! For my homepage, I wanted to add the bare minimum of ingredients but still have it be somehow aesthetically startling, so I found and settled on the 3d rotation effect through experimentation.
Q: Who coded the website?
A: Me o/
Q: With what kind of editor?
A: vim and Firefox’s Inspector panel
