All projects start somewhere. This one started with a contract.

The contract is a document that details the original plan for the website’s design, content, and creation schedule; it also lists the digital tools used to create this website.1

Although some aspects of the site are different from the original plan, the contract is a great way to explore how The Floatplane Project came to be.


Curious about how the final version of the website compares to the vision of the contract? Visit the creator’s defense of contract blog post.
