Website Design Styles

Art style, Image style, Caramel design

The work in this style is very laborious, requiring from the designer not only high artistic taste but also assiduity, since by the time of work, this is one of the longest performing styles.

Retro, Grunge, Futuristic style

For the "retro style " is characterized by such features as the use in the design of antiquities, images (or manually drawing) of manuscripts, rolls, old scrolls, wooden frames.

The style of Grunge is often, - the asymmetry of the blocks, the unordinary nature of their placement. The background is very rich with all sorts of textures, elements that support the style, various special brushes are used, with which the designer literally draws the background of the design. Against the background, information blocks are being created.

Futuristic style. As an option, something from the field of science fiction, you can scientific. Robots, metal, rivets, tentacles-ropes, pumps connecting individual design blocks into a single bio-mechanical one. Vobschem is a complicated thing, as for a verbal description. Looking for good examples)).

3D style, Vector style, Web 2.0 style

The main element of the 3D style is a three-dimensional object. This can be as a photograph, with the desired angle of shooting, and an object modeled in the program of three-dimensional graphics.

In vector style, the basis is a vector illustration, or a separate vector element. The property of vector graphics, in contrast to raster, or the same photo, is an underlined stylization. In this way, the drawn / drawn object has the ability to refrain from detailing unnecessary elements and emphasize important ones. Or just keep the recognizability of the subject, saving him from excessive detail and photographic similarity with the original. Vector graphics allow you to scale the created image without any quality loss, which in turn allows you to use it not only in the web, but also in print and outdoor advertising, if necessary.

Despite the fact that Web 2.0 is more of a technical and ideological rather than an aesthetic concept, the term " Web 2.0 style design " also appeared. So, the design in the style of Web 2.0 should be, first of all, simple, clear and extremely clear. Using any bells and whistles is not allowed, Flash is generally unacceptable. Only graceful laconicism, a harmonious asceticism of forms and lines. These sites have the following similarities:
- Elegance and simplicity;
- Rounded forms;
- Shadows;
- A gentle gradient;
- Font without serifs (Sans Serif);
- Pastel colors;
- Footer;
- Font size: more than usual size;
- "Lacquered" interface elements;
- Visual HTML (XML style).

Style collages, Geometric style, Business style

The term "collage" in its modern interpretation is also used to designate the creation of an entire image from a series of separate fragments of other images, usually using computer programs such as Adobe Photoshop and other graphic editors. At the heart of creating a digital collage is working with layers. In the process of creating a collage, different types of blending, blending and transparency can be applied. Despite the fact that in most cases the term "photomontage" would be more appropriate, the boundaries of these two concepts when manipulating images using computer programs are practically erased (material from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

Geometric style is created on the spatial relationship of geometric figures, the designer creates a certain pattern of placement, on the basis of which the entire design composition is built. It can be either explicit geometric figures: a circle, a square, less often a triangle, or a simple placement of structural blocks in strictly rectangular cells, which can also be attributed to this style.

Business clean (clean, light) style - such a confusing name I gave to mock-ups in which white background predominates, clear, expressive positioning of functional blocks. This style is most often found in business websites. Characteristic features of this style are the use of business-themed photographs, these are people (the specific occupations of people can be used, depending on the direction of business), as well as the abstract, inexpressive background on which they are located.

Minimalist style

This style is also called Academic style . Clean, unalloyed, not containing excess. Strict. Laconic. Focus on the logo. There is no adornment graphics that are not content.
