Is Brutalist Web Design The Next Hot Trend?


#1

From the Washington Post:

The hottest trend in Web design is making intentionally ugly, difficult sites

Really interesting article on the Washington Post last month about the emerging trend of tastefully off-trend sites.

My question to you, web design community, is what you think of these so called “brutalist websites”:

  • Are they a symptom of too much minimalism?

  • Are they a creative form of rebellion against the mobile web?

  • Do you like them, hate them, and why?

  • And, have any of you designed themes that fit this brutalist style? (If so, please do share some images!)

Funny :slight_smile:
I don’t think so - some “artists” may try coming up with these things, but my opinion is that common sense should win over ideas like these…

My eyes get seriously ill when I’m looking at these kind of websites. Feels like someone wanted to be original and go against todays trends, but instead it looks like well…sh*t. I don’t really see a point in making websites difficult and ugly and hope that this atrocity won’t last long :joy:

I’d be interested to hear what @SoloPine and others think of this.

I’m sorry, but it should be called Amateurism Web Design, not Brutalist Web Design :frowning:

Not everything that’s trendy it’s also hot.
