The web is changing and it looks like it's for the best, at least in terms of design. It's interesting to see this evolution since the web 2.0 era, the time we started ABDZ. The focus on content has always be the most important thing, but a couple of years ago the trend of big cover/splash images took over and most sites adopted. Now we start to see a bit more refinement and ways to use the grid or to break. In this post I would like to share some examples illustrating this tendency.
I'm a Brazilian product designer based in Oakland, California currently working for Google as a Staff Designer. I am also the founder of Abduzeedo, an award-winning digital publication about design and a personal project that has become the source of inspiration for millions of designers and enthusiasts.
Hristo Hristov is a designer based in Frankfurt, Germany. He has put together a quite inspiring set of comps on web design featuring a quite elegant editorial design style that seems to be perfect translated to the web.
