If I had to choose one online entertainment platform, I would tell you without a doubt that I live with YouTube, because, in my opinion, It's so varied across the network, because it brings together a huge amount of content that never stops growing daily. Of course, it has other options, but in its field, it gives the best results.
In the meantime, on YouTube you can find music clips and videos, movies to rent with your Google account, entertainment videos, Youtubers, documents and your content made by YouTube Variety, of course, does not go down to the Google platform.
However, YouTube has never been this way, but it has always been, in its function and in its composition. Now, 15 years have passed since its inception with the first video uploaded to the platform, too we will review how web design has changed for the rest of its history, let's go with it!
This is how YouTube's design has evolved since its inception
2005: the simplicity and complete absence of image objects
The first YouTube YouTube design was very simple, with the platform logo at the center, a search box just below
The design is simple and very intuitive, timely, and that makes the show perfectly. Aesthetics was not her priority, And it makes sense. Although, as we will see, something has changed a lot over time.
2007: a preview of their approach
Two years after its launch, the YouTube website started installing previews of his videos on the cover, where we had four videos included above and the list below.
In addition, we started to notice the presence of side banners as well an old eyelash system access different parts of the platform.
2009: declaration of intent
Here the preview is overridden, and it is inserted into the second designated row where there are a few others. As for the top menu item, YouTube logo has been reduced, it leaves room for selecting languages and other function keys.
Little by little we see how the YouTube logo leaves space for other higher ups, and how YouTube creates more space for previews and material things.
2010: Old building
Of course now YouTube formation is starting to sound a lot, because now we have four first the grid of videos organized in the most general way of how we used to.
On the surface, in addition, YouTube's logo is next to the search box, something the company has decided to keep in its design ever since.
2012 Redesign and sidebar
In 2012 YouTube decided to launch the sidebar that we still find today on the web, too with which we can enter useful parts,
You also accept the list format, as you can imagine, Not longer than one year. The grid is here to stay.
2013: YouTube's first live blogging
This year, YouTube has changed its status, giving the first of its latest YouTube strokes, making the screen more profitable as well as introducing many things we can easily access, but also managing the amount of screen previews.
Again, we got it greater independence, a preview next to you, and finally a grid below.
2015: minimalism arrives
In 2015 the company decided to give it a completely similar look to the interface, and that's about it Slightly changed the colors of the platform, and also introduces a selection of tabs that you can see at the top.
The style, no doubt, It's more minimalist but still, there are still some details to get to where we are now.
2016: The latest tweaks are one of the best online trends
We're probably in the current design, and if you look at it, this version doesn't change things. Most notable is the removal of the large preview that supports the grid
2017: YouTube as we know it today
A year later we have the current YouTube, which has a barrier with similar icons a large grid in the center, and a logo change, which separates the red box next to the name, something minimalist and serious, which, personally, I like a lot.
It is true that in the past months the company introduced some changes, but these are more effective than construction, ever since This doesn't get any major updates.
