The world is a beautiful place, and yet, one website design is still missing the mark.
Designers and designers alike struggle to find the perfect balance between aesthetics and usability.
For the past couple of years, it’s become clear that the world needs more design.
Design in a world that’s increasingly reliant on online content, this is one of the areas where designers can shine.
This is especially true for those in the digital media industry, who are still largely underrepresented in the field of design.
This article aims to showcase the best designs of 2018 that showcase the power of design, both for the design industry and beyond.
While the following are the most prominent designs from the past year, many of the design themes are not exclusive to design.
They include a little bit of everything, too, like the concept for a new theme, or a new style for a style.
Let’s dive in.
