jacobgrahn.com was the first website created by Jacob Grahn used from January 2005 until April 2006 when mrjiggmin.com was launched.

History

Jacobgrahn.com launched in January 2005 as a portfolio for showcasing Jiggmin's recent web and graphic designs created in Adobe Flash to possible employers. Video games were first added to the website's content in April and would eventually receive their own section a few months afterwards.

As the year progressed, Jiggmin began devoting more time to programming games and less to graphic design, with the section not receiving further updates past October. A "current project" area on the main page was added around then showcasing an in-progress game, though it was only used twice as Jiggmin moved to mrjiggmin.com in April 2006.

Despite the switch, jacobgrahn.com was not updated until June 2007 when the About Me page was overwritten with a message explaining Jiggmin's loss of interest in web design and a link to his new, gaming themed jiggmin.com. The website remained up as an archive until late 2011 when it was shut down unannounced. Jiggmin continued to renew the domain, however, until 2015[1] when it was closed entirely.[2]
