Dredging the internet archives 1996-2001 – Websites then and now


Posted by monkeon on March 20, 2010

Halifax had quite a few animations which were probably actually pretty impressive (not to mention slow to download) in 1996…

They liked this one so much that they used it twice.  Two pound coins didn’t exist then, of course – otherwise they could just have spun one of them.

They also made this spinning globe. If it had been animated with java, then I could have made a joke about it rotating around the Sun Microsystems. But it wasn’t, it’s just a gif.

The problem with complicated design elements is when you want to add a new one.  Do you commission the designer to make a new one at great time and money.  Do you do that?  Or do you just think “fuck it”...

Whatever this is supposed to be, I don’t like it.
