Design Trends For 2008

The folks over at WebDesignerWall have published their design trends for 2008. Thankfully, the Web 2.0 design craze appears to be over, with glossy backgrounds and flashy gradients missing from these designs. However, here are the elements that were most pronounced this year:

  • Vintage/Retro Styles
  • Handwritten Notes and Paper Clips
  • Grungy
  • Splatter Ink
  • Watercolor
  • Big Fonts
  • Script Fonts
  • Wood Patterns
  • Zig Zag Patterns

So for those of you in need of inspiration, give this list a good look through as I’m sure there will be at least a few new ideas that will pop into your head.

Other than the designs showcased in that post, have you come across some really cool website designs lately? Perhaps a WordPress theme or two which you found to be impressive? Be sure to link to it and let us know in the comments.

  1. How about a trend where designers actually create B2B sites that are nice clean and that don’t get in the way of the sales message. What a concept website that sell and convert visitors into customers!
