Remember the nineties? The days when nobody used CSS, Mosaic was still a thing and HTML3.2 tags were written in ALL CAPS because they were IMPORTANT goddammit.

It was a golden age when anything seemed possible and there was no Facebook to monetize our dreams.

My name is Charlie Harvey and I miss the websites of the nineties. Websites that were made by real people not fancy pants designers or people who knew what they were doing. You could fit everything on one lovingly crafted HTML page with all your favourite GIFS. We were exploring the cyberspace together!

  • Do you miss the nineties too?
  • Have you got a nineties site design you would like featured HERE?

Send me E-Mail and let's bring the nineties web back to life!

I will HYPERLINK all the best designs from this website!
