Hey Hunters! I'm Rob, the founder of FWA (an online award I established in 2000, showcasing cutting edge web design). In summary, I wrote a book on the history/evolution of web design and it's finally available for pre-order. It's been a total labour of love and I hope it will be of educational value for future generations, whilst also capturing the first 3 decades of the web for those who were part of that journey. "Web Design. The Evolution of the Digital World 1990-Today" Published by TASCHEN "Since its debut in 1990, the internet has seen over a billion web pages—but it wasn’t always sleek interfaces. In this visual tour through history, trace the very earliest examples of what we today take for granted, from the first website to use surround sound to the first ‘upload-your-face’ function and YouTube-like page. Complete with year-by-year factsheets, Google insights, and commentary from the creators themselves." It gathers more than 200 websites, and each comes with quotes and insights from the creators themselves—an invaluable peek into the minds of pioneers who paved the pixelized way for many to follow, including Jonathan Gay (Flash), Gabo Mendoza (Gabocorp), Yugo Nakamura (Yugop), Peter Van Den Wyngaert (NRG.BE), Joshua Davis (Praystation), and Eric Jordan (2Advanced). This comprehensive visual history has 21 chapters that detail, for every year since 1998, the best websites and examples of hardware used at the time, and explore how user experience, usability, and technological milestones have influenced the development of the internet we use today. The year-by-year factsheets and smart Google insights orient the reader through major developments across such categories as world news headlines, highest grossing films, new soft and hardware, greatest website traffic, and many more.
