20 Websites with Unorthodox Geometry Elements for Your Inspiration

(Guest writer: Edward Warner)

Although, the argument that most internet users today are always “on-the-go” and are more concerned with getting things done in the fastest and easiest way possible is quite plausible, “creatives” would hardly agree with the idea of forgoing uniqueness and aesthetics for predictability.

For this reason, contemporary designers are taking a 45 degree turn when it comes to flat design, and improvising with unique angles and shapes. Instead of treating every image, slideshow, thumbnail, slider, carousel, or module as a “box” or a rectangle, designers have tweaked the predictable form of design into eccentric, yet unique-looking shapes.

Who says responsive design always has to be about white spaces and bare-minimum square and rectangles? We all want our audience to think of our website as worthy of a second look. Check out these uniquely angled and shaped design concepts created by designers who were able to “think outside the box”.
