Research the history of web & interactive screen-based design. Start with the dawn of modern computers. Relate the different periods of the progression of web design to the time-periods we use to define traditional art and design history. such as Ancient, Middle age, Enlightenment (Pre-Modern) , Modern, Post Modern. Note that I am not look for an analogous translation, there is no equivalent to the “classical” period of antiquity in the arc of web design history. Rather I want you to asses the different phases, periods and movements in the progression of web design and create a theoretical framework informed by traditional time periods. Conclude your essay with what you believe to be the current status of modern web design. Is it in a period of modernism, post-modernism, or (post-postmodernism / alter-modernism)?
