DIFFERENT ERA OF WEBSITE DESIGNS

The Internet has been a platform that all of us move towards to since the early 80s for news and information - starting as an interworking server to an intercontinental network. Since then, the web designs of the Internet (World Wide Web) have been continuously evolving.
The constant update allows consumers to have a better visual experience, as well as, comfortable user-flow while they are browsing through the site. It also lets owners place more images and content to create a beautiful, user-friendly website to retain consumers and reduce bounce rates.
Let us look at the different types of website designs and see their evolvement over the years!

In the 90s, when the World Wide Web is first introduced, the site is primarily formatted in HTML on a static page.
As a stand-alone page, all information was pumped into the page, with loads of words.

You know, when new things come about, everyone will be excited to do something with it and rules the game! Therefore, at that moment, many businesses or individuals will try out website designs, and build their webpage with substantial content and graphics in hope to attract people.

Website design has become neater, and the site is more pleasant to the eye, with better navigations and clearer images or content for the consumers to understand. Better website design will also mean that consumers will stay longer as they navigate through the website.
Slowly and surely, web designs have become elegant and beautiful, clean and sleek. Today, the Internet has evolved to detect the different type of scripts on top of HTML codings, and there are content-management systems to manage the website thoroughly. With that, designs can be more flexible for the viewers, and even more pleasant to the eyes. With the improvement of web designs, the bounce rate has lessened, as the content is more visible and relatable to the audiences.
On top of having these web designs on a desktop, designers and developers have the skills to create responsive web designs - where the website fits on different platforms such as mobile and iPad.
