From: July 3 until September 3.

Netdiver static + Editorials sections

Have I got news for you!


I am really pleased to announce the release of two new vintage sections on Netdiver. I compiled all editorials I wrote into a directory (including some interviews I did through the years).

Although written a good while ago – surprised at how relevant these are still today.

Editorials by Carole Guevin

Editorials. Design topics or issues that have impacted me or our creative industry..

Over 50 articles.


Sometime ago – someone inquired about the old news archives – the ones that were static – lol. Yep from 98-08 Netdiver was hand-coded.

It took longer than I thought the re-aggregate the content into our site design – but all done now.. and online. A legacy to the early web.

I am in the midst of revisiting links (years 04-08 to do) so – never mind broken links – the content is enough. Follow our web history from the very beginning..
