I really like the way Wikipedia defines web design: “Web design is a broad term used to encompass the way that content is delivered to an end-user through the World Wide Web…”. And we have to say that web design is really all about the way you deliver content, so taking good care of shaping your website is something that’s very important. Websites are pretty much based on grids and columns, where geometrical forms are the main elements. Here we will show you some examples of how circles, squares, rectangles and triangles are used to better create beautiful and inspiring websites.
