Web Design Museum exhibits over 1,600 unique designs from the years 1991 to 2006. Discover forgotten trends in web design.
The main goal of the Web Design Museum project is to map out past trends in web design that were dominant on the Internet between 1991 and 2006. We would like to preserve the creative legacy of web designers from the turn of the millennium for future generations, since Internet users in 2030 would hardly guess how unique the websites in 2003 were in terms of their design.
Screenshots of websites come either from the private archive of Petr Kovář or they have been obtained through the Internet Archive, Arquivo.pt, Archive-It, Library of Congress, Stanford Web Archive Portal, Perma.cc and other services. Since launching the museum in May 2017, we have received several dozen screenshots from visitors of unique websites from the turn of the millennium, which are also included in the collection.
We are still looking for web design trends that dominated in the past (e.g. interactive flash websites, grunge design, pixel design, techno). If you have interesting websites on your PC, dating back to the period between 1991 and 2006, we kindly ask you to send us their screenshots in full resolution to firstname.lastname@example.org.
