The Latest in Web Design? Retro Websites Inspired by the ’90s

To navigate the website for Arcade Fire’s coming album, “Everything Now,” users need to click through a cluttered cascade of Windows 98-style pop-ups.

Balenciaga’s new website looks as stripped down as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, with plain black boxes and no-frills Arial font.

And the D.I.Y.-looking home page for Solange resembles the desktop of a candy-colored iMac, complete with QuickTime windows and rows of blue folders.

Web designs have come a long way in 20 years, but some are taking a step back to evoke a sort of hipster nostalgia for the early days of the internet.

“They’re tipping their hat to the 1990s,” said David Lee, the chief creative officer of Squarespace, a web platform company based in New York that has created millions of websites for clients. Mr. Lee said that he has seen a recent uptick in what he calls an “anti-design brutalism,” with clients opting for more bare-bones, retro-looking sites.

5 Signs You Need A New Website Design

Your website should be the best reflection of your brand, especially considering it’s most likely the first place a new potential customer will see/learn about your business. If you have an outdated website design that either looks like it’s from the ’90s or isn’t responsive, it’s time to upgrade! When someone lands on your website, they will decide within a few seconds whether to stay or leave. Often, this decision is based on how your website looks, feels, and navigates. Do you have music or a video auto-playing on your home page? Is the home page filled with blocks of text and lacks few engaging images? Are there pop-ups on your site? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should consider revamping your business website design!

SHOULD YOU UPDATE YOUR WEBSITE DESIGN? 

If you’re wondering whether to hire a web design company to update your site, consider these tell-tale signs that you should re-design now!

1. IT’S NOT MOBILE-FRIENDLY

Take our your phone and type in your website URL into a search engine. How does your website look? How does it navigate? Is it easy to view? Take some time to browse around and consider these questions. If you find it’s difficult, time-consuming, or slow to move around your current website on a mobile phone or tablet, it’s time for a change! The majority of people visiting your site will visit through a mobile device, and those numbers are only growing as time goes on. If people can’t easily navigate your website on a mobile device, they will immediately leave and get their information from your competitor. Don’t let this simple conversion stop you from getting new leads and customers!

Branding Company in Delhi – VIDAAN

What is branding ?

According to wikipedia :

A branding agency is a firm that specializes in creating and launching brands, as well as re branding. The role of a branding agency is to create, plan and manage branding strategies for clients, but can also involve support in terms of advertising and other forms of promotion.

In order to develop a more profound understanding of the function of these organizations it is initially important to capture the idea of branding. In short, branding is the process of developing a company’s brand, including a name, identity system and messaging platform. These aspects will develop what is referred to as a brand message, which will then be applied to marketing campaigns to spread that message. A brand represents a promise to your customers, what they can expect from your products/services, and essentially what differentiates your offering from competitors.

It is a vital element across all industries, as it allows organizations to gain competitive advantage, define a coherent brand communication strategy, and to increase and reach the target market.

All organizational sectors, whether it is a business, non-profit organization, or even a government agency, use branding agencies. Most often, organizations look to hire branding agencies in order to produce brand strategy and brand identity.
