Since the Internet began in the 90’s, the evolution of website design and page layouts has been significant.
These days, the evolution of website design has led to requiring a responsive, minimal design with quality content. As mobile usage continues to increase, every website must also be optimized for mobile devices.
CNN Money recently compiled a slide show of snapshots to paint a picture of what popular websites used to look like and how much they have changed in the past 20 years. The brands featured in the slide show include Microsoft, AOL, Google, McDonalds and Pizza Hut, just to name a few. Some of these extremely text heavy websites are hardly recognizable. Menus, sidebar links, and top products were all highlighted with text links. In 2015, website design is dominated by images and videos. Social media has shaped our society and driven change in website design.
