This is a new feature for my blog, I’ll try to make sure it really is a ‘weekly’ one… This week’s wrap-up includes a few notable posts about recent web design trends – and what’s no longer trendy! Enjoy.

  1. Stephanie Hamilton writes about 10 Beautiful Website Color Palettes That Increase Engagement at The Daily Egg. Nice palette choices; I just finished a design with a palette very similar to The Big Top.

  2. Paul Feakins writes about the flat color trend he’s observed recently in Web Design Trends: Flat Color.
  3. Chris Brown writes about The What, Why and How of Textures in Web Design for Web Design Tuts+.
  4. Joshua Johnson writes about 5 Former Design Trends That Aren’t Cool Anymore (So Stop Using Them) at Design Shack.
