In 1996 when we launched the first website for The Village Bank, then known as Auburndale Co-operative Bank, most people were accessing the “World Wide Web” using dial-up modems with their distinctive connection sound and slow speeds.
At the office, we were using an agency America Online (AOL) account to send and receive emails on a computer that likely had a screen resolution of 800×600. Like many others, we used Yahoo! to search the 100,000 websites (for comparison, there were an estimated 1.7 billion websites in 2020). Clients like Auburndale Co-operative Bank and others would soon be using their new websites to introduce new ways for customers to access their accounts including “PC Banking.”
Over the past 25 years, we have worked with The Village Bank to create websites that adapt to consumer expectations, new technologies, and a multitude of screen sizes. Launching the new website, the ninth since 1996, our focus was on functionality, responsiveness, and accessibility. Click here for more details about the newest website.
With the help of The Way Back Machine, we took a look back at how The Village Bank, and our Agency’s designs, have evolved.
