April 2016 – October 2017 (Design, Front-end) - August 2018 (Development)

Cssfox is my favorite creation and the most complex project I have ever worked on independently. I started to design the fifth version of the community site in April 2016 and finished it in October 2017 – it took a year and a half! Today is July 27, 2018, and the version is still at the development process.

We started developing this version at the end of 2017. Oleg stated that it is a completely new site, there just one thing that remains untouched: the DB; but even the table titles were corrected following the changes in the site structure. Hopefully, by the end of the summer we will be able to launch the new version of the community portal.

Special thanks to Drew and Oleg for their great and professional work and to my wife Limor for her endless support.

Community mark concept

The mark is a combination of the letter "C" – first letter of the Cssfox name and the word tail (tale).
