ITT: we post the mid- & late 2000s aesthetics.Anything between 2003 and 2012 is welcome here.THIS IS NOT A Y2K THREADDO NOT POST Y2K HEREWhile yes, those two aesthetics may overlap, y2k already has its own thread, so post blatant y2k stuff (i.e. anything from between 1996 to 2002) there instead.>>393698
>>410055dont post that website its made by discord crossdressing pedos trying to construct their own misguided vision of the past
>>410067Oh, so that explains the retarded nonsensical names they use, good to know
Every 2006-2011 digital art in nutsgell
This fucking website (i forgot the name)
>>410028where did the time go bros...
>>410137That looks like something made in 2014-2017
does anyone have the pic from the last thread of a wii remote on a wooden background, can't find it in the archives for some reasonit was atrocious
>>410158This is the only picture of a wiimote I found
>>410158>>410303But I think you meant this iPhone pic
How do I recreate that blue wavy pattern on the right?
The entirety of Mirror's Edge screams mid-late 2000s aesthetics
Mid to late 2000s design was pretty bad all around. Web 2.0 stripped the character out of brands and introduced a kind of creepy sterility that still lingers in modern design trends to an extent. I mean just look at 4chan today, it's basically the same shit design it was in 2008 during peak Web 2.0
>>410513While I can see where you're coming from, I'd say the focus on skeuomorphism at that time at least still gives some degree of personality compared to the practically simplified 2d design that became commonplace after 2013-2014.Then again that's probably nostalgia talking.
>>410544Yeah, I think part of the thing is it has no nostalgic value for me (I'm in my mid-30s). I can appreciate some of the trends of the time to an extent, but by and large they don't do it for me. I'm much more receptive to the kinds of trends that were popular in the mid 90s to early 2000s, as well, frankly, as some of the current design trends, many of which draw from that time period. It's all cyclical and it's kind of fascinating to see firsthand now that I'm, you know, old.
>>410025Green and white is very much a 2000s color scheme. I had an iPod in those colors. Now would be "dark mode" black + blue + white since everyone's harping after Discord and Twitter
>>410450they really captured a feeling in that game, I remember playing the demo a bunch and then buying the game a few years later. It makes you wish you could live in a world like that.
>>412620Holy shit it's the drip car
in mid-late 2000s photo and video fags discovered that ~30% desaturation + ~20% higher contrast makes everything more "serious" and "artistic" and applied it on everything, so pornography became more bland and boring to look at
>>410055Are aesthetics something like subcultures for zoomers? Because it somehow feels that way, except aesthetics are pure consumerism.
>>410055i dont like that website :s too many kids subverting cool aethetics!
>>410067> trying to construct their own misguided vision of the pastEveryone does this.
>>412859>aesthetics are pure consumerism.Thank you for catching up with the rest of the class.
>>412005Reminds me of this
>>412914Is there a name or term for this style? It reminds me of late 2000s DeviantArt. Every time I try to look for more graphic design or art in that style all I can find is late 2000s Vocaloid fanart.>>412797>pornographyFreudian slip there?
>>412909yes but doing it by yourself is different from forcing your vision on others as "objective truth"
>>412915Superflat seems to be the closest I can think of
Urban vinyl and papercrafts like these were all the rage at this time
FreshTV's old logo and their design sensibilities were peak mid-2000s.
Sadly, most of these Room Tech Beingz never came out
>>412922God damn, I miss these things
Remember when YouTube gave you the ability to fully customize your channel rather than just letting you change your banner and your profile pic?
>>412915not sure but I was wondering that too. feels adjacent to tokidoki and the like.. neo-kawaii aesthetics that were popular at the time. Tokidoki, Oopsie-Daisy, Pixelgirlpresents etc
>>413024 I associate it with San Francisco & people who probably worked in graphic design, collected dunnies and aggressively customized their Macintosh icons/desktop
>>413008That channel is still up btwhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=er9bIf2CTkwSome serious kino in there
>>412620What is drip, if not swag preserving?
>>413189Dude, that's mastercard's new logo. Plus this looks very 2010s. Are you sure this is late 2000s?
>>413196Reverse image search tells me it's from some bank in the UAE from late 2016.
>>410025Kaleidoscope schemes were great
Back with more Frutiger Aero.
And more of this superflat/street punk primitivism stuff. Sorry in advance for /a/.
If FF10 and KH1 is quintessential early-2000s Square, then pic is quintessential mid-2000s Square.
>>413309God, I miss these things
>>413572that ui reminds me of the Unity DE from old Ubuntu
>>413195>knock off comic sans
Man. The summer of 2009 til like. . . The fall of 2013 were the best years of my life. I have no doubt that I will have years or times I enjoy as fondly, but something about junior year in highschool and senior year were really solid for me. Whenever I go back to my grandparents house where I grew up, I sometimes sit in my old room and just wait. 2010 is alive in the walls back home, I can feel it. I want to think myself back to that time, bros.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Z3TbMBfDM0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFDV3y76nQEA lot of Vocaloid music videos give me this vibe
>>413662Reminds me of "Luna" by Moonspell.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhUPFMGn9H8
>>412005There are so many graphic design trends and movements that lack a name. Wonka Pomo and Y2K Futurism are relatively newer terms, but stuff like pic related has none or I don't see itSkater core?Rock graphic?Tee-gaze?Mid Aughts Rocks?
>>413774There definitely needs to be a name. PromoPunk is all I can think of besides any of those
>>413774this naming shit makes my skin crawl, ngl. needless revisionism + trying to manufacture next ebin internet recycled commodified art trend.
>>413777I like it because it makes it easy to google search and visualize an idea than go on a tangent like->I want to make something that looks like mid 2000s graphics that were presented on websites, promotional posters, and commercials in what I can only assume was the western media of the time. It's like spindly and curvy inorganic shapes, paint splatter, graffiti inspired emblems, and rough textures overlayedI've always loved early 2000s futuristic stuff, but the fact that people gave it a name makes it easier to grab material of it for reference
I absolutely hated the shitty graffiti crap things, that was the worst. Anything hiphop influenced during that period of time was fucking disgusting. Rest is ok
>>413794I don't know, I really like some of those "pattern brush" things or whatever you call them like with pic related
>>413777based and checked
>>413025That is such a cute example of Apple's skeumorphism.
I grew up during construction of those south american mega malls, this kinda mid-2000s sterile yet colourful style defined my early years lolalso the GLOSSINESS of surfaces man, damn tripping hazard
>>413874More like this
>>413981>2014look at the sources and filenames of the shit you post, you fucking retard
>>413984Graphic design and visual styles can be reminiscent of a certain era (in this case, the mid-to-late 2000s) while not being of that era. It's not that deep, anon.
>>413984Not him, but here's a picture from 2007, is that better for your standards, sore fuck.
>>413984Asian countries are still stuck in the early 2000s aesthetic wise.
Concept art for the American Dream mall (formerly known as Meadowlands Mills or Meadowlands Xanadu)
>>413312hey anon do you have any pics of bedroom designs with this fruity aero or whatever you call it aesthetic? I want some inspiration to decorate my room
Peak mid-2000s design.
>>414141Boxy designs were huge during this era
>>414142>be original and be yourself by consuming our productVery 2000s indeed, kek
>>414323really digging the shelves and the rug on this one, as well as the ceiling lamp
>>414539Never forget what they took from us.
>>413998I miss mallsoft...

>>413237>>413238Remember when Apple forced them to remove all Aqua-like themes?Good times
>>413312ericsson bathroom lmao>>412618>>414539>>414858no need to post the same thing thrice my dude(s?)
>>413305fuckkkk i miss this so much. always liked how it looked so peaceful
>>410544That's peak UI design
You now remember zOMG.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtkNWQHOHE4
>>413779The 'style' is just adobe illustrator. It's digital ink.
I was in high school and college when this was gaining popularity, when I was studying design. And now I cannot get this fucking style out of my head. I'm stuck in 2008 deviantart mode forever. Help reset my brain.
What would you guys say is the big difference between the mid-late 2000s and the y2k era stylistically?
>>410450Never been really into the 00's aesthetics, but the atmosphere of this game is something.
>>410029i loved when GPUs had flashy cases. Do any modern ones have this?
>>415919ummm hmmm, those bee sum mighty fine bucks for the breaking
>>414142I remember this ad campaign. Scion were pushed to be the 'new' fast and furious ricer-mobile like old civics were at the time. Instead it was bought by college age girls and old jews
>>415923very high quality shitpost>>414858love the attention to detail
>>413008Yes. It’s a damn shame they got rid of it. Fucking ridiculous.
>>410025Peak 00's game
>>417388Blackberry has some phones with physical keyboards on them, there's also the Unihertz Titan, and if you're a freetard there's also the Pinephone (although the keyboard for this one is an add-on)
>>415386This thing looks fantastic. Did it ever make production?
This era of album covers
>>417447very ~2006 era psyop/speculation around how oligopolic control over internet traffic delivery could have taken it's coursehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JP_3WnJ42kw
>neon colors>round edges>no end points>designs look like they "move" restlessly>shiny>plasticDid not like it back then, do not like it now.It left a bad taste especially in electronics and home appliances, where the design raised the price of a product by 30-60 % yet brought no extra functionality OR if it did, the feature did not work very well or had high requirements, e.g. extra non-standardized software/adapters/products, an internet connection for accounts etc.Having lived through it, I understand why further standardization, WIFI and simple user interfaces became popular fast.
>>412629Not really. I get what you are saying but it's a dystopian hellhole with prefab structures. Sort of like the internet and phones and apps today all with the same standardized corporate soulless design. Our physical world is more 1995-2008 internet but the world of Mirror's Edge is 2020 internet.
>>413572holy shit, that's for a ringtone?
>>417436Takes me the fuck back.
>>410304How and why did these kinds of patterns become a thing? Just the rise of vector graphics?
Volkswagen, the future is now and I'm still waiting for my nano spyder you stupid faggots
>>415748more eco awareness, there's a sense of wanting to communicate connectivity and peace. i feel like it's a bit more urban and gen-x hip bc gen x'ers started becoming authority figures at design studios. its extremely chill, it wants to drink beer and listen to the strokes with you

>>416138Omg what the fuck, peak 00s

>>414658Mallsoft isn't dead.
there was definitely a really common design trope in the mid to late 2000s of color or paint being added to a colorless space. maybe that was subconsciously related to the cultural effects of 9/11 and obama being elected or something. idk i was born in 2002 so politics had no effect on my memories of that frame of time.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgZ2y_beF9Ihttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aG5CsCN3Tog
>>419158>>419159>>419162Damn, I really miss mid 200s console ad aestethic
>>419165hell yeah man, people always kinda shit on those weird PS3 ads with the white room and the creepy baby but i always liked them even though it probably wasn't a great idea from a marketing perspective. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQKr2mFrJws
>>419167The ps2 directed by David Lynch are even betterhttps://youtu.be/msMehuZo3x8
>>419168apparently that one was supposed to be in color but sony changed it to black and white without david lynch's approval which is really unfortunate, id love to see the original version if it still exists out there somewhere.
>>419164>maybe that was subconsciously related to the cultural effects of 9/11 and obama being elected or somethingHow is that related lol?It's probably a consequence of fluid simulations becoming better, faster and easier to do, kind of an evolution of metaballs and blob objects becoming somewhat popular in the latter half of the 90s
>>419174liquid animation becoming easier to pull off definitely has something to do with it, but perhaps visuals of a bland monochrome environment getting painted over with color is pretty analogous to the feelings lots of people (particularly artists, who skew more liberal) had years after 9/11, coming out of the bush jr. administration and into the obama era, the campaign of which was ran on the words hope and change. not that they're directly related, but i feel like it could reflect the general feelings and culture amongst people who typically work in graphic design during that time.
>>419180I can see it, though.a lot of these types of advertisements also appeared in 2007 and 2008 before Bush resigning. This could also just be another way for graphic designers to "rebel" against the establishment
>>410025i used to just call the time period of 2005-2012ish as the bling, bidazzled 80's inspired neon colored street graffiti social media look. everything back then had a graffiti look for some reason. i think this is because Hip-Hop/rap and R&B took over the rock and nu metal aesthetic and everybody wanted to look "urban" aka a black person. >t.99 zoom zoom
>>413775>>413774Design Student Orgasm + Underground
>>414142>>414179>>415926The idea was to make relatively cheap and customizable cars to appeal to younger drivers, learning from the failure of the PT Cruiser. Still didn't take, shit was still too expensive. I heard that people swear by their xBs though. It still kind of blows my mind that I attended the first and last of my local car shows to feature Scions.
>>419164>there was definitely a really common design trope in the mid to late 2000s of color or paint being added to a colorless space.100% Apple, unfortunately. Mid 2000s-2011ish is when you actually saw a massive reduction of "color" in media. 90s had a ton of diversity, and at some point people felt like they were good and suddenly you had a bunch of shows and movies with just white people again. Obama didn't even snap people out of it, it was Trayvon and BLM. 9/11 actually accelerated this to a degree, because "We're all Americans!" means that everyone can be represented by marketable white folk.t. 31 and sad.
Should we make a new thread now that the image limit has been reached?
>>415924Personally i miss when blu-ray covers were crazy flashy with all kinds of raised textured graphics and shit
any other britbongs notice superdrug hasn't updated any of their branding or store design or anything since like 2009? it's like visiting a time capsule
>>419504Yeah, I think so
>>415017>peak UInot really, terrible datedits not bad, just heavily influenced by its age
>>419535>terrible datedStill looks good up to this day, so Idk what are you talking about. W7 UI was way worse and really a product of its time. And I say this as windows user.
>>419537it looks good, but datedits not exactly timeless design, but is was never bad design. thats why it remains good today.it is still plagued by trends and influences of its time, instead of staying truly timeless.
>>419538I never said it was timeless. Unfortunately, UI design is plagued by following the trends popular in any time period that it would never be timeless.
>>413987>me at the bottom left booth
>>413627this but music around 2013-2014early vaporwave, seapunk and chillwave just evoke such a powerful feeling of nostalgia for me
>>418471i miss it bros
does anybody know that fucking music video with this aesthetic and the train and the stickmen and the orange, black, white colors and the isometric shit? thats literally all i could remember about it but damn i need to find it.
>>420260This kinda fits your description. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vahiZbwzk8k
Safdie brothers movies really capture this too
>>413774what about stuff that isn't a movement/trend, but more of an archetype that you see manifest here and there across artists and eras and mediums? unnamed vibes that you think only *you* love
>>421140There are a few visual trends/styles of that nature that I like, but I don't know how to describe them or what term I could use. What are yours?
>>420285I will never forgive them for stealing flash from us
>>419493God I fucking hate you people.
