Site design styles

Art Style, Image Style, Caramel Design

Work in this style is very painstaking, requiring from the designer not only high artistic taste but also perseverance, since in terms of work time, this is one of the most long-term styles of execution.

Retro, Grunge, Futuristic Style

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

Grunge style is often, - asymmetry of blocks, originality of their placement. The background is very saturated with all sorts of textures, elements that support the style, a variety of special brushes are used, with which the designer literally paints the background of the design. In the background, information blocks are created later.

Futuristic style. As an option, something from the field of fiction, you can scientific. Robots, metal, rivets, tentacles, cables, pumps connecting the individual design blocks into something single bio-mechanical. Vobschem complex thing, as for the 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 either a photograph, with the desired angle of shooting, or an object modeled in a three-dimensional graphics program.

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 underlined stylization. In such a way that the object is drawn / rendered, it is possible to abandon the detailing of unnecessary elements and emphasize the important ones. Or just to maintain the recognition of the subject, freeing it from excessive detail and photographic similarity with the original. Vector graphics allows you to scale the created image without any loss of quality, which in turn allows you to use it not only in the web but also, if necessary, in printed products, outdoor advertising.

Despite the fact that Web 2.0 is more technical and ideological than an aesthetic concept, the term “ Web 2.0 style design ” has also appeared. So, the design in the style of Web 2.0 should be, first of all, simple, clear and extremely clear. Using any frills is unacceptable, Flash is generally unacceptable. Only elegant laconicism, slender asceticism of forms and lines. These sites have the following similarities:
- Elegance and simplicity;
- Rounded shapes;
- Shadows;
- Gentle gradient;
- Sans serif font;
- Pastel colors;
- Footer;
- Font size: larger than normal size;
- "Lacquered" interface elements;
- Visual HTML (XML style).

Collage Style, Geometric Style, Business Style

The term “collage” in its modern interpretation is also used to signify the reception of the creation of a whole image from a number of individual fragments of other images, usually with the help of computer programs such as Adobe Photoshop and other graphic editors. At the heart of creating a digital collage - work with layers. In the process of creating a collage can be applied to various types of overlay, blending and transparency. 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 almost erased (material from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

Geometric style is created on the spatial ratio of geometric shapes, the designer creates a certain pattern of placement, on the basis of which the entire design composition is built. These can be either explicit geometric shapes: a circle, a square, or more rarely a triangle, or simply placing structural blocks in strictly rectangular cells, which can also be attributed to this style.

Business clean (clean, light) style - I gave such a messy name to mock-ups in which a white background prevails, a clear, expressive positioning of functional blocks. This style is most often found in business sites. The characteristic features of this style are the use of photographs of business subjects, these are people (specific professions of people can be used, depending on the direction of the business), as well as an abstract, inexpressive background on which they are located.

Minimalistic style

This style is also called the Academic style . Pure, pure, not containing excess. Strict. Laconic. Focus on the logo. There is no decorative graphics that is not content.
