The History of Web Design


New Member
Hello everyone,

I'm a Graphic Design student from Leicester in the UK and I need to pick the brains of any Oracles of Web Design (or just any generally knowledgeable peeps) that may frequent these boards. I'm writing my critical study about the changes in web design since web pages were first created in the mid 90's.

In essence I want to know:

1. What has changed both in terms of graphics and in terms of functionality?
2. Why those changes occurred?
3. Where is web design headed in the future?

I would greatly appreciated anyone's point of view about this subject even if it's just a couple of bullet points. If anyone knows of any decent books or links to articles on this subject that would be brilliant too.

Thank you in advance to anyone who takes the time to reply to this thread
