90s web design alive today


Recommended Posts

Until recently, the Space Jam website was essentially untouched since 1996 and was a classic example of old-fashioned web design that still existed.

 

Today while doing some research for work, I came across this gem: http://vashonisland.net/ (The 404 page is pretty special).

 

I like these quaint websites that didn't migrate to Squarespace or whatever. They're not handsome -- or even functional -- but they have personality that millions of copycats sites don't. 

 

What examples do you have?

That's a real company?

 

"Voted #69th best sunglass brand page, by your mom. Think you’ve got something worthy enough for us to throw up on our social media? Go ahead… try us."

 

The default email address in the text box to submit yours is "yourmom@hotmale.com"

 

Then there's this - a lot to unpack here:

So there's an easter egg where if you hit the Space Jam logo on the new website, it took you to the website from 1996

Some more stuff from Pit Viper:

 

They have the Pit-Viper Entertainment Network 15, or the PEN15 for short.

They offer prescription glasses, where they state that "Yes, unlike the odds of you having a girlfriend. Rx Vipers are really real."

They run Sh**tyHats.com, which also has a wonderfully 90s website, where they've got hats saying "I like butts tough," "Who sharted?" and "Here for the gang bang"

 

I really like these guys.
