The design trend associated with Web 2.0 is actually multiple trends rolled into one.
- Round corners
- Glossy/Shiny graphics
- Big, prominent graphics
- Larger, non-serif typography
I’ve often said, a designer who can pull off a simplistic design is just as talented as the one that can create a super-complex one. That is because a simple design is more than just leaving elements out. It is about balancing design, carefully choosing colors and typography, and expertly integration navigation and content to create an effective and smooth design.
