Trends of web design. Part 3

Custom designs

Recently, there has been a strong trend towards more individual and creative designs. Instead of using conventional approaches, designers experiment with how the information is structured, how it is presented to the user.

In these “non-boxed” designs, creativity is often more important and memorable than attention to detail. However, ease of use, typography and visual design are rarely forgotten and also carefully work through these points. Creative designs are often used for portfolios, websites of advertising agencies and promotional sites (commercial events of large companies), as well as very popular in blogs.

Accounts are beginning to accumulate, the payment term for an apartment is getting closer and in such conditions a dubious customer who wants you to design a logo and site design for $ 100- $ 150 does not look like such a bad option. We all know how hard it is to adhere to our principles, and to look for a good job that allows careers and skills to grow, and not get bogged down in a routine, but in difficult moments it’s not really possible to think about it.
