You need to know about Neubrutalism Style

I recently came to know about Neubrutalism. Well bear with me for a minute. I'll let you know the thing I'm talking about.

What is Neubrutalism ?

For short, Neubrutalism is an architectural style that emerged in the 1950s, characterized by its use of raw, unadorned concrete construction. Buildings in this style often have a blocky, geometric appearance, with a focus on functionality and simplicity.

How did it come to web design?

A few popular websites, like Gumroad and Figma, popularized it in some way. And lots of websites are using it.

Why I Got Excited to Tell You About this?

Because I've done it with my website too! And I transformed it from a normal design to a neubrutalism style in just 4-5 hours.

This is what I did.

Here are a few things that I did to make it look neubrutalism style.

  • Used Headings in CAPITAL LETTER
  • Bold fonts
  • High Contrast Colors
  • High Contrast Shadows
  • Sharp Edges (In some elements)

And the result that came out was BEAUTIFUL. Although I'll make some changes in a few days and make it more BRUTAL. And I'm planning to add some animations too.

Nice explanation! I'm going to be honest though, I like the smooth styles of webpages like Github better at the moment. They just feel sleeker and less crowded.
