Web Design Museum
Now, you can scroll down memory lane with ‘Web Design Museum’—an online museum that “exhibits screenshots of unique-design websites that were created between 1996 and 2005”, without making you listen to the unforgettable dial-up tone—which was the sacrifice you had to make to get access to the internet back then. That sound is probably still ringing in your ears to this day.
Besides the gaudy blue hyperlinks and pretty basic typefaces, how was the internet of yesterday different from today’s? For starters, websites were created in a content-first, design-second approach. Now, a visitor would likely click away if your website were too messy.
See for yourself how web design trends have changed over the years in the screenshots below. Check out ‘Web Design Museum’ for over 800 more.
