As Patrick says, “Sometimes there is a trend, and sometimes there is a trend. Is the use of wood the new glossy style? It just might be the case. I have noticed for some time now the shift from a technical aesthetic (things like shiny sites, badges, saturated colors etc) to a more organic style (think brown and muted colors, and wood of course).
As I researched my database of sites for this article I couldn’t believe how many sites I found that used wood. There were so many I just got tired of looking to be honest. But this wasn’t until I had 40 samples to provide here. Which by my standards certainly establishes this as a solid trend.
Sure the style has been around for a long time, in fact it was one of the first articles on Design Meltdown. However, there is a massive surge of design using this style and it easily warrants a fresh collection here on Design Meltdown.”
…and I’m number 3!
