aaaeflrrrx.eu was built with the ingenuity and patience of DisplayHooray.
The typeface used throughout is Maria Pro, created by Phil Baber, whose 2010 design for the Index book reappears here in the work pages.
Credit also goes to Qubik for my original website (2010–2014), which lives on in the icon based home page.
