It’s time to design your own website or logo and you are thinking “Well, I’ll go with something that I will personally like. I don’t want a website that I don’t find attractive.” Well, this kind of approach is not entirely good. It would be for the best to avoid fully involving your personal feelings and tastes in this matter.

Elements and principles of design in general need to follow certain well-established trends, but this does not mean you are not allowed to be creative and unique. It only means that you’ll need to build with the blocks that are already provided to you.
