Website design philosophies:

Apple: "...and a really big picture there, and a really big picture there, and a really big picture there, and..."

Microsoft: "border-radius:0 !important;"

Google: "EVERYTHING MOVES!!! And most websites get material design. Most."

Amazon: "We're slowly moving away from 2009"

Wix: "How can we further increase load times?"

Literally any download site: "Click here! No, click here! Nononono!! Click here!!..."

Facebook: "We can't change anything because our main age demographic is around 55"

University websites: "That information isn't hard enough to find yet. Decrease the search accuracy and increase broken links."

    I wonder of this is the real conversation happening behind the scenes. It would stress the heck out of the engineers

    @Huuugo one of the reasons why it will never be a solution i would propose for clients with little budget. Webflow sounds way better.

    @jschmold I used to date a girl, until I found out she made all her "sites" using wix..

    Granted she titled herself as a designer, but still...

    Wix in short: drag & drop looking fine on the facade but.. Just don't look behind it.
    Unless you are some kind of masochist, loving eye bleeding that is.

    I'd add that Facebook also mute feature development as a lot of the time it costs them a lot in data and traffic so they probably have to look at everything with cost benefit shades.

    The only reason I came to this thread 3 years later is to professor my utter contempt and undying white-hot hatred all-things that are the absolute dumpster fire that is material design.

    God damn do I hate it. If hell exists, may the creators of material design burn in it forever. Or be subjected to material design for eternity, whichever turns out to be worse.

    Good post! As I know it is quite difficult to implement modern website design because there are so many different trends, requirements and problems. I think better will be to use professional help. I know that specialists from Golems GABB company can create cool adaptive design for your site https://gole.ms/services/...

    Hahaha! This really conveys the whole philosophy of design in companies! In fact, as strange as it may seem, most people perceive brands the way we designers do. I have quite a few years of experience in design and still learn something new every day, it's very interesting. This is primarily an advantage of working in IT, I think, but it is with design that it is quite clear. As part of my development, I read a lot of articles on the Internet, and I find it very interesting. The last one was an article about Top 10 web design companies: https://jpost.com/special-content/... which I really liked. I think it will be very useful for my overall development.

    I believe that most of the target audience perceives visualization in a slightly different perspective than designers. Therefore, it is necessary to understand both the philosophy and the perception of the audience and use appropriate images. Therefore, pay attention to a professional resource of stock images, donald trump images https://depositphotos.com/photos/... It is possible to choose a convenient package for downloading photos.
