Lately flat design is in fashion. So is the huge feature image for every post, a trend which results in a page full of images and very little text.
I’m happy that there are fads and fashions in web design. It creates job security for a lot of web design firms.
I don’t mind the flat designs. They don’t interfere with getting to the content you want. But the trend toward pages full of nothing but images with few words and required clicks to get to the content bugs me. I guess I’m just a word person. Images are nice, but I want the content.
I know there’s a lot of research that proves that images attract the attention and gather the eyeballs. But do they really mean more people are actually reading the content? There’s no image with this post. Did you read it?
