Web 2.0 design and style

July 11, 2006

There appears to be an emerging style associated with web 2.0 sites. The large text, drop shadow, curved edges approach while clean and definately easy to read is getting a bit stale in my opinion and seems to be a safe option being taken by many designers. Could this be due to designers spending more time with developers and taking usability a little too much to heart (sites can be usable and still inspiring in design)?

I’d like to see a bit more variety and invention in the designs appearing at the moment. I like designs to be edgy and different, while still usable and sticking to standards. All this is possible but seems to be getting overlooked at the moment.
