Web designs also help portray the corporate model and responsibility that the brand shows. This is a refreshing approach and trend that is emerging and surprisingly it is paying off too!

Abstract elements help portray in an appropriate way when images or photographs cannot be used. Many times, start-ups use abstract art elements to create strong visuals and portray their creativity. Mobile apps too use abstract art. It’s an easy way to create strong visual interest without actual photography. Abstract art uses elements such as geometric shapes with animation. Simple shapes and movement can be quite stunning when done well. This aesthetic works well with any type of website.
