Current Web Design Trend

February 10th, 2006

I admire well designed sites, especially those that followed the current trend. When I see such sites, I can't explain clearly what is so nice about the design of the site. I don't know exactly what made the site looks good. The color of the background? The font used in the site? They just makes me feel good.

But after I read this web design article, I couldn't agree more that the following elements (stated in the article) are the real things that made the great design great.

  • Simple layout
  • 3D effects, used sparingly
  • Soft, neutral background colours
  • Strong colour, used sparingly
  • Cute icons, used sparingly
  • Plenty of whitespace
  • Nice big text

From there, I learnt exactly which direction I should go when I'm going to do my next web design. Hope you learn it too, especially if you are those programmers who are trying to do web design (I'm one of them).

If my article helped you solved your problem, consider buy me a beer!
