Tired of every website looking the same? So are we.


Web design and development has come a long way in the past 15 years. We're no longer just clicking on text hyperlinks and animated GIF buttons. The web has evolved into a rich visual landscape with almost cinematic qualities. Usability standards have evolved from earlier ideas on Don't Make Me Think and have matured with gorgeous user experience (UX) design and beautiful interfaces.

No doubt, things have come a long way. With that in mind, take a look around the web. If web design has evolved so much why does everything look so similar. Following usability standards are important for a successful web design. Simple things like ensuring the logo is a link to your home page or that the footer allows users to find contact information quickly and easily. But how much of a good thing is too much?

Modern Web Design

Does every website have to look the same?

The above image, courtesy of Louder Than 10, shows 12 current homepages of websites you probably know. Why do they all look so similar? Standing out in your marketplace doesn't mean looking just like all the other kids. It's like tail-fin designs from mid-century automakers. This too was a global phenomenon that took over an entire industry.
