Current Web Style

I'm not sure how many - if any - people read this, but it's been a while. I won't even make a promise to post more often, as I would inevitably make that statement into a lie. Regardless, this is fairly interesting.

Ben Hunt of the UK firm Scratchmedia has a post about Current Web Style, and I think it's largely accurate as a description of a trend. Now, this isn't a monolithic movement, but take a look, and I think it reflects a lot of what you see online nowadays. What I think is most interesting is how this diverges from what traditional print designers do online. Web is its own medium, and as such will have different groups develop, no one would argue with that. But the myopy on the part of both web and print designers strikes me as hardly a good thing for either party.
