UX design becomes a more and more favourable way to develop elements the user interacts with. Graphic design is in a transitionary period. Likewise, with website design, everything in the visual arts world is getting increasingly dazzling. We see striking hues, exploratory creations, photomontages, serif fonts, metallics, and 3D designs. This is a significant departure from the flat, plain look of past trends.
Minimalism ruled for almost 10 years. Presently designers are moving into decadence and excess. Forget about usefulness. Ignore Helvetica and white space. Maximalism is an immediate response against minimalism. This style is portrayed by the resilience to defy the norms; clashing colours, hand-drawn designs, and complete silliness.
