Desktop Retro: The 21st Century Begins


We are almost exactly one month away from the 25th Anniversary of the opening of EPCOT Center. Dan Cunningham helps us celebrate with a desktop that takes us back in style and design to 1982. Dan also includes a much-requested widescreen version as well. Thanks again to Dan for all his efforts.

AHhhh yes... I have found my desktop wallpaper for the next long while...

Bravo once again!!! (Standing ovation from the geeks of the world!!)

What's especially sad is that those designs are as fresh, cohesive and interesting as ever. Good designs are timeless. And these are great designs.

Oh so sad how Epcot has slipped over the last ten years.

I just thought the other day that I hoped that an EPCOT desktop would pop up on your site.
And look, there it is!

Insta-desktop'd.
This is a classic, and far better than the one I had previously cooked up here: http://thesuigi.deviantart.com/art/EPCOT-25-Past-And-Future-59036308

Now that it actually is the 21st century, let's return to what Mr. Banks correctly calls fresh, cohesive, interesting and timeless great designs. Bring back the EPCOT Center name, the World Bold font and the globe logo.
