In an homage to the early web, Bullets and Bars gathers structural elements from the homepage era. When the web was dominated by user-generated content and form, the bullets, bars, dividers, buttons and arrows did not merely structure, but also styled. As the bricks of a good homepage, these web elements contributed to the themes and ideas of every site. Unlike the thin gray lines and muted tones of the contemporary web which users populate with their content, the web elements highlighted by Bullets and Bars are equally about form and content. Bullets and Bars is randomly composed of more than 4,500 elements and changes every time it is reloaded.
