Of course, you will remember them; they were that horrible, poorly designed navigation icons you seen everywhere on the internet. That was the days when graphic design and web design were so far apart that every site you turned to looked ugly, and they were made worse by those little blinking, vividly colored images that were trying to point you in the right direction. Of course, I used them as well, who didn’t?
I wouldn’t call this a showcase, maybe a line-up. Have a look at these gifs from a now, thankfully, bygone era.
