The Latest in Web Design

Our daughter is in web and media design in college (her major).  She's learned a lot about designing websites and told me about Google's Material Design concept.  Google has a whole website area devoted to how a website should be laid out.

It's a lot to take in, so I asked my daughter to give me the overview.  She pointed to various websites to show me what she's talking about.  It uses big blocks of bold color with a sans serif font.  Here are some pages with examples:

Now I'm just waiting for my daughter to come home on Friday for Spring Break to tear it all apart and tell me to start over.  LOL!

If you're thinking of changing up your website, this would be a cool idea.

Have a great week!
