Version 4 (2003-2005)
In the fourth version, everything branched out into no less than 4 parts. This would later get the fanciful name of “GPN – GurkoZ Productions Network.” Everything was built in a custom content management system designed exclusively for this purpose. With the help of dynamic tools that also simplifies the process of updating text and image considerably. Applications such as archive and guestbook are now built from scratch with all the functions required.
I was at the time extremely tired at all the stiff and white sites that were considered the most correct and modern. All the talk about “less is more” and how bright and easy everything should be. In order to get some breathing space and an outlet for my locked up creativity, I tried to create something a bit more graphically demanding. I turned to the gaming world, trying to find something a bit more futuristic with screens and small details. It was based on an image of a hard drive and on top of this the different sections where created. I think today that I really achieved something spectacular and I just hope that people realize what an incredible amount of time that was spent on this.
After completion of the project I realized that this is still not accepted, people did not quite understand what I wanted to achieve. From this the idea of “GSENS – Graphical Sensation” would later be born to respond to more traditional customers with modest and ordinary requests.
Graphic sensations lives on to this day and can be found at the following address. http://www.gsens.se
The whole thing with multiple sites would ultimately still prove to be too much work to maintain. My basic idea was to vary my work and create new sites whenever I stumble upon something interesting. However to update all of this and keep it alive, was a bigger task than I had anticipated.
On the 9 August 2005, I shut down the project to focus on version 5.
