ASCII art nod for PhotoSecrets


By Andrew Hudson Published: April 30, 2012 Updated: November 26, 2013

The ASCII art of PhotoSecrets has been honored at Github.

In the article “ASCII Art Signatures In The Wild or: How I Downloaded The Internet And Learned How Much One Million Is,” Github contributor Victor Widell kindly included PhotoSecrets at #25 on his list of the “more interesting examples” of ASCII art from the Alexa one million top domains list. The “art” in question is a hidden PhotoSecrets logo embedded in each page of this website.

“As a web developer/designer (amongst other things), I take pride in my craftsmanship and like to sign my work with an ASCII art signature in an HTML comment. .. I had this idea: Wouldn’t it be awesome to scan through a chunk of the Internet and see who else is doing the same thing, and how their signatures look? .. I’ve picked out a few of the more interesting examples.”

“ASCII art is a graphic design technique that uses computers for presentation and consists of pictures pieced together from the 95 printable (from a total of 128) characters defined by the ASCII Standard from 1963..”
