BOOK: Web Design. The Evolution of the Digital World 1990-Today

  • Rob Ford

The biggest thing I ever worked on is here! The book on the history of web design: "Web Design. The Evolution of the Digital World 1990-Today" Pre-order your copy: 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." Author: Rob Ford, Editor: Julius Wiedemann Hardcover, 7.7 x 10 in., 640 pages #TheHistoryOfWebDesign Back story: in Feb 2008 Nokia invited me to their HQ in Finland to do a talk on web design. With my anxieties around such things, I agreed to write an article for them to share with their team. It was called "The Web Pioneers" and gave an insight into the early years of web design. Ever since then, I have been adding to it and wrote what would have been a 1400 page book, without the editing skills of Julius Wiedemann and his team at Taschen. In summary, don't fear your mental health... work with it and you never know where it might take you. :) Pre-order your copy: Published by TASCHEN
