2013 Design Trends for Dark Themed Websites

Ad

Last week we posted about one of the design styles we believe will be trendy in 2013. In this post we would like to feature another trend that has already been established and is evolving alongside with the technology that makes it possible. The trend, editorial/magazine style with big images, and more specifically, dark color schemes.

It's mind boggling to think that a few years ago most of the sites featured after the jump wouldn't be made using web standards (HTML/CSS/JS) but Flash. Evidence proves that constraints are uber important for the evolution of not only the technology but the designers and engineers behind the scenes.
