In January of 2012, I decided that it was time for me to create an online portfolio for my graphic design work. And so, Vlat.co Enterprises was born. At this stage I did not have any sort of self-branding and this was a step in the right direction at the time. The idea behind the colors and logo was a rustic steampunk-esque theme. The website itself was built on a simplified Wordpress theme. There were tons of things that weren't user-friendly by a long shot, but I was proud of my work at the time. It was a start.
