Back to the 90's – Vintage Cell Phone Designs

Cell phones are one of the best inventions of all times and they have really changed the way we communicate pushing this process beyond the limits. Tracing instant evolution of this hi-tech product we can state that it evolves extremely fast changing its technical performance along with the design. And sometimes it is hard to say what is more important for the clients – design or performance attributes.

Modern cell phone is not that square piece of plastic with antenna and small screen, odd keyboard and acid-green micro-light. Still that sweet nostalgia makes us remember our first cell and how much we’ve loved that now-obsolete design. 1990’s were the epoch when phones have received bigger screens, abandoned aerials and antennas, became smaller and smarter. Also we can state the fact that in 90’s marketers understood that original design can boost your market share even without any extra technical advantages.

Today we can easily say that the 90’s cell phones are vintage because they represent a stratum of design history that have established modern vision of mobile devices. We gathered a collection of interesting designs that were popular back then and we are sure that some of these are familiar to you. It is really interesting to observe how cell phones evolved fusing technical improvement with design innovations. One more great thing about cells is that these gadgets have mixed and developed some dissimilar spheres like GSM networks, design singularities and software abilities.

We’ve picked models that have interesting design or were important milestones (on our opinion) but of course it doesn’t mean that our list can’t be updated with your suggestions – we are glad to hear what your favourite ones were in the comments section.

Is camera enough to make a memorable shot? Even when your camera is superb and you are a professional photographer, pictures turn out to be dull and inexpressive. Sometimes they only grab certain scenes as they are, but lack certain impressive elements. HDR photography is never dull, it features everything in the stunning way and evokes the viewers’ emotions. HDR technology transforms the bleak sceneries into the expressive by means of adjusting the shadows and playing with the dark and light parts of the image. HDR photos display reality in some fantastic ways and make it more appealing and eye-catching.

Reflective Photos of The World Around Us

The world around us is a huge mirror that reflects itself. Some objects reflect the others and at the same time are reflected somewhere too. Mirrors, glasses, lakes and smooth surfaces reflect everything around them and create stunning visualizations of the trivial things. Actually, the reflected images are the same as the initial objects – they feature the same size, but face some other way. At the same time, when the surface is not flat, the reflected objects gain the unusual shapes and it is even hard to tell what image is reflected. Sometimes it is really captivating to observe the reflective photos that display the original curves and shapes.
Creative reflective photos from this collection capture the wonderful scenes of the world around us in all its diversity. Let’s browse them and enjoy their beauty!
