2012 was clearly an interesting year design-wise. The responsive boom in web design gave birth to brilliant redesigns; clever layouts emerged with a focus on clear typography and impactful, contrasty colors. Large background images with a mood-setting character and sharp edges on unusual shapes were combined with interesting, yet intuitive interaction. Elegance meets down-to-earthness, that would be the motto I’d pick for a wonderful and exciting year of web design.
