In the comments on the blog article about the best free photo stocks you can find several questions regarding copyright for photos and images.

Trends and trends in web site design 2017

It was originally planned to place a translation of an English-language article on web design trends in 2017, but after studying various sources, we decided to slightly change the concept of this note. The thing is that over the past month on the Internet has been published a lot of thematic materials about current trends in web design, and opinions, as they say, have diverged.

Let’s start with the most popular trends, which are noted by many experts, and gradually move on to more “unique” ideas. By the way, if you have additions and thoughts on the topic, feel free to share them in the comments. Plus, we recommend reading about the trends of logos in 2017 – also a useful post.
