The field of pixel art was conceived from classic gaming which has grown into modern pixel art. While the demand for pixel art has decreased, there are still thousands of talented pixel artists around the world who keep the art form alive.

It’s surprising to see pixel art extend into web design. But when done well they seem like a match made in 1980’s heaven.

Although there aren’t many pixel-based websites around, I’ve collected a handful of the quirkiest examples for this post. If you’re interested to use pixel art for UI design work this gallery can offer some ideas on where to get started.
