Today you could hardly ever be successful online, if your website is not unique, trendy, and interesting. Year after year, new trends appear, designers find new elements to use in order to turn common things into astonishing art pieces. Now we are talking about geometry use in contemporary website design field.
Grids and columns are what websites are built on, aren’t these the elements of geometry? Yes, geometric forms lie at the core of these layouts: here we mean rectangles and squares mainly.

That is sad that our world is full of violence and suffering. What is even sadder, the ones who are materially well-off settle down in their small comfortable world and often lack motivation to reach out and support others.
