About J5

Some are probably wondering...J5 Studios? What's with the name? Let's just say that I was a victim of the dot com shakeup. My other site, VenomousSnakes.com lost funding after one of the snakes bit an investor. Kidding, really. No, actually this was the shorter name of J5 Productions, an all purpose media company that guys whose name starts with the letter J started (hint hint....there were five of us....hence J5).

I, Justin Ribeiro, am actually now running the domain, since that's just my part. The other four J's are still in the mix, and we are currently working on a new venture.

About This Design

Credit for the icons on these pages goes to the Gnome 1.4x graphic artists at http://www.gnome.org/ from which I borrowed these images. (I'm still running Gnome 1.4 on some boxes.)

Credit for a lot of the design elements really goes to much more talented people at zeldman.com, simplebits.com, and stopdesign.com. Many of the elements you see on these pages are poorly replicated from existing features on those sites because I found them functional.
