Once upon a time, in a land of sputtering dial-up connections, websites took ages to load. Folks yearned for the 100% mark. But as soon as that figure arrived, the beloved (or bemoaned) preloader disappeared, never to be seen or heard from again. Until now.

Pretty Loaded is an archive of preloaders that preload other preloaders…which in turn reveal yet more preloaders. Copy that? It’s a tribute to a vanishing art form amid a constantly changing digital landscape.

This infinite loader is being put together with help from friends across the interactive community. We’ll continue to add to it over time, so keep on coming back.

Pretty Loaded is created and curated by Big Spaceship. Kindly direct your observations and inquiries right this way: info |at symbol| prettyloaded |dot| com.
