ITT: We post mid-to-late 2000s graphic design styles, visual trends, and aesthetics.Anything between 2005 and 2012 (or anything that is reminiscent of that era) is welcome here. THIS IS NOT A Y2K THREAD. DO NOT POST Y2K HERE.Previous: >>426510
Starting off this thread strong>>433522I forgot how horny early 2000s ads could be
>>433524jason statham owns
>>433524Is that an anime girl.
I honestly love the aesthetic of those fake highly photoshopped movie posters.
>>433579Reminds me of that game "Remember Me"
>>433556Seems so at first glance. But no, that’s Natalya Rudakova.>>434099THIS is what web design is about. Giving a site some character by creating graphics that take some actual effort.

Remember when games where trying to go for that Sin City vibe back in the late 2000s?
There was also this other game that no one gave a shit about that had a similar artstylehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ltc31w_HetM
are the kids actually interested in this?it feels a bit forced tb h. show me some modern takes on this aesthetic.
>>434851this would look so much better if all the cars were varying colours of red because as is they all blend into the background

>>434871I think he means mid-00s as a whole, not just fruity aero
>>434871i've got a bit of a bias against nostalgia-driven art/design movement, but this is pretty disappointing even by those standards.there's nothing new in these at all. no subversion of what was (and still is in parts of south and se asia) the predominant corporate aesthetic of its day.this is just boring.
>>434895Whoever this guy is is categorically false and elitist (like all of a period of time I'd bad design). Honestly, keep up the old stuff regardless.
>>434895>nothing new in a specific style that ended.What are you even looking for? I think your bias is more than just a bit
>>434908>categorically falseabout?>elitisti'll give you that>like all of a period of time I'd bad designnever said that>>434916>What are you even looking for?some sort of justification for making more of this stuff beyond just: "old good". post-internet work is very well preserved, there's very little practical reason to just make more of it unless you contribute something of your own, even it's a flimsy thesis.
>>434871gay ass design aestheticfuck yourself
>>434935What makes it so gay?
>>434917>tfw you realize 2013 is one month away
Alright I'll post the obvious

>>435402>that rap music is embarrassingThat just makes it better

I spent a lot of time on this site from 2010-2011 when i first got into Photoshop
Remember when Grindhouse was becoming popular back in the late 2000s?
>>434895I don't know what you are expecting. The images shown would be used in a space that is the equivalent of a logia. They do their job while creating an environment that draws little attention to itself while being appealing and offering some sense of character albeit soft.
>>434935You sound very effeminate or bitchy maybe? You don't sacre me. Work on it
i fucking hate all of this so much, it all feels cheap and artificial. It gives me the same feeling like when you pick up something that you expect to be made of metal but it's actually plastic.
>>435989wasn't a lot of the stuff in the 80s and 90s cheap and plastic too?
>>435991sure, but all or most of the media produced then was still fairly bound by traditional means of production and consumption and design still felt like it had weight.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzrRIi9FMIUThis commercial aired in 2003, but I think it still counts.
Acer Aspire 5xxxit has Webcam!Poverty laptops shaped like toilet seat running Vista are what mid to late 2000s are about
>>436432you must really take it in
>>436434form follows function and less is more am i right
Fuck you Badspot
>>436432Reminds me of the BenQ nScreen i91 (which is IMO the most mid-2000s looking AIO PC ever made)
rave poster from 2004\
>>434895For anyone with any sense of the history of design aesthetics and how it coalesces over time into what can be called recognizable stylistic categories, this entire discussion is pretty bizarre...The idea that a roughly 1/2 decade of commercial design exists as some distinct and unique aesthetic that must be separated from what was happening five years before it is ludicrous. So is the idea that any visual reference to it a handful of years past some arbitrary cutoff point is nostalgia or retro...perhaps some people see it that way or are motivated by that when following those stylistic cues, but as you point out this style hasn't even gone away yet.The whole thing points to the fact that like clothing and music, graphic design has become more and more fashion-ized as the means of creating and distributing it have become more accessible. As the practical considerations of old methods and networks becomes more relaxed, novelty for its own sake can become a primary goal. Notions of design/art that stands the test of time and/or timelessness as an aesthetic ideal are not just ignored, shallow trends that come and go are idealized and any organic history/connections outside that niche that overlaps is rejected as meaningless. To acknowledge that recent history/connection is to declare that something isn't "fresh"...yet as you point out, truly fresh ideas are rare; aping the trend accurately is the mark of excellence.It's not going to kill good design or anything, any more than retarded "high" fashion like picrel is going to make sensible clothing go away just because hipsters act as if keeping track is Serious and Important.Aping trends and fashion cycles isn't new, but the speed of the turnover has definitely accelerated in the digital age in almost all creative fields. It may sound like exaggeration but soon these "aesthetics" will be measured in months, not years, and the admonition will be->THIS IS NOT A JAN-FEB THREAD. DO NOT POST JAN-FEB HERE.
Soldier of Fortune (2000) magazine advertisement. definitely saw a lot of this lcd display type.
>>434871These all suck ass.
>>436273Hah i remember this one
>>436609It doesn't sound like an exaggeration because fashion (and consumerism in general) becomes more and more absurd every day

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkfoBdAs-GEThe Wall of the World project starts on 19 April, 2007. And from then on every inhabitant of the world can contribute to the Wall of World.The Wall of the World is a magnificent 47 hectare park with 272 granite walls, each 3.5m high and 0.5 m thick. Both sides of each wall will show the details of 65 million people or 1% of the world’s total population - name, family name, town and birth data. Thus the Wall of the World will be created by 65 million people. People who highly value the unity of humankind, friendship and peace.The Wall of World will be the largest ever man made testimony of the existence of humankind. The Wall of the World will be the greatest evidence of the unity of humankind.Anyone who visits www.walloftheworld.org can take part in the construction of the wall. Everyone can add his or her name to the history of the world. Anyone’s name can be immortalised to leave evidence of his or her existence. So can you.

I'm just going to post some "Halo Killers"
does anyone have any links to share that have lots of stock photos from say mid 2000s? They just differ in look drastically from contemporary stock ones. Or not necessarily stock photos, just a big collection of photos that can be used for gd.

>>437478I miss that smiling text bubble icon like you believe
>>438657I miss watching reuploaded flipnotes on youtube like you wouldn't believe
>>438941That flipnote takes me back so hard.
just found this
>>438485>>437677>>438486Love this sorta shit
>>439362fucking sick yo, I also miss that people wanted to replicate this sort of movement in user interfaces like the windows aero flip 3d or the linux desktop cube (or did UI effects come first and then industrial designers tried to replicate those motion effects in physical products? idk lol)
>>439365yeah what you're thinking of is called skeuomorphism, i think they did this a lot in those days because they were trying to get people unfamiliar with tech to learn how to use it, so they just transferred the design language of familiar things onto their digital counterparts
>>434934tell me more
>>436609>>THIS IS NOT A JAN-FEB THREAD. DO NOT POST JAN-FEB HERE.I really enjoyed reading your post, do you have a blog or something (no homo). and I agree completely. shit moves fast now, trends come and go faster than you can blink. I have a prediction (based on nothing lol, just a hunch) that design will keep going simpler and simpler until we reach the most boring form of globo-homo design you can ever imagine. even more boring than it is now.
>>436432>acer laptops with cyrillic lettersI remember when we get our crappy Acer laptop back in Christmas of 2004. I was 10 years old, and I remember my parents buying random electronics for the entirety of the mid 2000s because the economy was booming (my country had just joined the European Union, so everyone started getting a raise, lots of EU money projects going to different companies, doctors getting more cash, basically fuckloads of free money everywhere). This was before the housing market collapse, the crisis that fucked everyone up. anyways eventually we got a new laptop in 2010, that almost carried me through my graphic design BA degree (eventually had to replace that one in 2016, but good lord did it serve me well!). there was a very sad moment when my parent told me they were throwing out our 2004 oldie acer, I had fond memories of playing freeware games on it from 2004 to 2010, there were even some old files there that my dad got to copy to a harddrive. but SO MUCH was lost, many of my flash animations, many of my old Ms Paint drawings. really bummed me out, since a large portion of my childhood and teens were spent on it.
>>440108The artist kinda fucked up her left leg, there.
What's with current generations being so fixated on reviving and fetishizing stuff from 10-20 years ago
>>440147It's existed since the crux of modern society -- this is just the current wave, exacerbated by social media. See also:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gay_Nineties

Anyone remembers when this ship was popular?

>>434858It's pretty ugly but it's interesting, I'd like to figure out how to replicate it.

>>440647If I had to pick one anime artist to represent the 2000s, it would be this guy. His work was everywhere, and I quite enjoyed it.
>>440840>>4407412000s cars all look like gay shitdildos
>>440870Still better than today's big grill wannabe-luxury shitboxes.
It feels weird looking back on 2005 and how platformers started to decline and the 7th gen "edgy" reboot style became the norm. Everybody likes to say that everything changed in 2007 or 9/11 but it was actually 2005. Something about the old soul of the Y2K/low poly/Jet set radio era just died that year and it was now the Frutiger Aero/realism/Gears era (which was still fun).
>>440974Is there a particular name for this sorta gothy-superflat look? I fucking adore it.
>>441045>Prototype 2 screenshotThe funny thing is that I honestly dislike how green and "colorful" Prototype 2 is. I honestly prefer the more muted colors of Prototype 1 as I feel like it fits the edgier tone better for me.Though, I have to say that they did a great job with Prototype 2's cutscenes with the monochrome feature with hints of color to make the image pop.
>>441048"Superflat Pop" is the term that's popularly used to describe it, but given how it was created by CARI, it's probably not going to be invited here.
>>441045okay but why did you post the same thing FOUR FUCKING TIMES?>>441047>>441054>>441046
Radical Entertainment's website from back in 2006https://web.archive.org/web/20061019160358/http://www.radical.ca:80/index.cfm
>>433511Why do some people ITT seem mad about other people liking the aesthetic? A couple years back the trend was reviving 80s and 90s aesthetic, this will continue till the end of time.
>>441297It's not that, what's enraging is that faggots are now trying to warp the past to fit their specific visions and force it on people with different visions of the same time period.
I miss the grindhouse revival from the late-2000s and early-2010s
>I WAZ IN CHAINZ
>I CAN TAKE THAT BEATING (by my dad)
idk if this style ever had a name but i like it
>>441063What the fuck is wrong with these retards and their hostility to CARI anyway? It's just a fucking database for ease of reference.
>>434125that tiny text used to have a chokehold on the design world. I forgot it existed,
gonna start posting good stuff now lol
>>442273I've seen this site posted a few times in these threads. Do we know its actual purpose?
>>442309creatives used to assemble on forums and discuss art/design, share work, talk about life, etc. this was a site where that happened.
>>442269wow dude, you got access to cari, you sure are posting good stuff that no one else can lookup
>>442347Not OP but I was really into webdesign work in 1998-2010 you can find a lot of them on web design museum https://www.webdesignmuseum.org/gallery/page/2/category/Design%20&%20Art
>>442217>Why do people hate pseuds who don't know shit about design and yet try to sell a warped version of history that fits their own visions of the past and their personal political agendas?Gee, I wonder.>>442365FUCKING. THANK YOU.Finally an old design website that's not yet another CARIfag circle.
