Fresh Breath of Polygonal Style in Website Design
Amid extensive use of flat style graphics, visual storytelling solutions, rich content media approaches and a great deal of websites based on dynamic layouts, polygonal style — which was enormously popular several years ago — has recently found renewed life as an emerging design trend.
So what has actually changed? In terms of actual direction and implementation, almost nothing. It is still the same brilliant artwork with convex or concave plane areas that are constructed with the help of various plane geometric shapes entwined with ingenious color palettes. As for its use in website design, it has certainly undergone some changes. For example, a couple years ago polygonal style was mainly static and served as complementary ornamental instrument that used for backgrounds, standalone decorations and logotypes, whereas now it is being spiced up by various dynamic effects. It definitely occupies a favorable place in design and contributing to the whole aesthetic and as a way to draw user attention.
Moreover, it has also become more sophisticated and complex: Magnificent poly-style scenes and breathtaking landscapes with a geometric vibe came to the forefront. The web has become more advanced, and so does the polygonal style, and it really makes me glad since our toolkit of styles and themes doesn’t grow scanty, but on the contrary, stays diverse despite of current trends.
Though the flat style increasingly dominates a great deal of website interfaces, there are still website designs that include three-dimensional decorative elements made from basic geometric shapes that allow them to instantly stand out.
How do you feel about the polygonal style? Does it look appropriate in the era of flat style? Why or why not? Share your thoughts in the comments.
