In 1996 my professor at Syracuse University in the computer graphics program encouraged us to pay attention to SIGGRAPH.  It stand for Special Interest Group on GRAPHics and Interactive Techniques.  

She connected me to the team at SIGGRAPH, and I designed their website. Which included a set of icons that informed the Taxonomy of the website. At the time I had just had an internship at where I had done extensive research on the GIF89a format.   At the time I was using a combinaation of Adobe Aftereffects 3.1 for 2d Animation, a 3d package called Infini-D and a program that was designed to reduce color palletes called DeBabelizer.
