It feels natural that every type of website deserves an inspiration gallery. Modern designers are working on hundreds of different projects each year and so many of them are dedicated to niche subjects. Zoos and aquariums serve a very similar purpose as an attraction to see a wide variety of nature.

Interestingly enough these two distinct facilities follow very distinct design styles. For this gallery I’ve put together 35 inspirational examples of zoos and aquariums.

I hope this gallery can offer a glimpse of the best each category has to offer – both for personal and commercial design work.

February 27, 2015 in Designer Showcase

If you’ve been living under a rock in Bikini Bottom for the past fifteen years then allow me to explain website media. You see, the Internet used to be a place dedicated to text and conversations. Eventually text & images blurred together. But at the turn of the 21st century Internet speeds were still very slow, thus streaming media wasn’t a reliable option.
