For some time now, people have been trying to break out from the minimalist design. Pandemic may help to end the trend at last.
Prior to the pandemic, people have started to open up to a more vibrant and colorful web designs which may continue in coming years also. Joyful approach may be taken with the design that is decorative at the same time. Popularity of fake 3D effects and ink traps has been increasing now-a-days.
