Web design trends with great examples

Smashing Magazine has two great articles: Web Design Trends for 2009 and More Web Design Trends for 2009.

A bunch of trends are described and shown: rich UIs, PNG transparency, big typography, one-page layouts, huge illustrations and vibrant graphics (a fave: Versions for Mac), more white space than ever, etc. etc. etc. They’ve identified 31 distinct trends/design elements, most ranging from pretty cool to very very.

While things like all-Flash sites can be considered passé, here’s a new one that I love: the 2010 Prius site. Great sound design, and it helps that it’s finally a good-looking car.

Your picks?
