Design with a sense of era; Pelicans by decade

Some of the inspiration for the BBC Web redesign came from the Pelican Project at things magazine, which lays out Pelican covers by decade giving a wonderful feel for the design ethos of each era.

The post of the redesign is well worth reading; not only does it mark a very mature approach to Web design, it treats it as a classic design problem rather than a brand-new digital world where the rules of design don't apply; they apply in spades. It's lovely to see it referencing classic British design, from Pelican to Eric Gill. No surprise that the design language comes from someone who understands typography, digital design and a bit of the old Letraset and Spraymount: Neville Brody.
