Analytic site Kissmetrics have compiled an impressive timeline of web design evolution. From the early 1990’s to the present day, this is a fascinating look at just how far web design has come in a relatively short time.
The whole journey is broken down into section detailing Prominent Design, Memorable Design Elements, Significant Advancements and How The Web Looked. It’s a fascinatingly detailed journey with a hint of cheeky insight. Personal favourite from The Mid-1990’s Memorable Design Elements section: “Good design principles often took a backseat to whatever looked the most advanced”.
