Is neomorphism still a trend? If yes, It's definitely my least favorite, mainly because it has several accessibility issues: uxdesign.cc/lets-talk-neumorphism-...

I can't think about my favorite trend though

Neomorphism is one of those design trends that does look really cool, but I can't imagine having to actually use it in any practical application.

Yeah, trendy designs are often radically inaccessible, and neomorphism seems like one of the worst offenders of all time.

I am skeptical of anything that involves too much animation, especially with scrolling.

When done well, it is certainly delightful, but it seems to be reinvented the wrong way over and over again and I'd strive for more simplicity when possible.

Scroll animations are fantastic but only in very few and specific scenarios. For the rest of the standard apps or websites, I think it's better to stick with the basics in favor of achieving greater accessibility
