A lot of people these days are exploring/creating brutalist designs and it definitely brought a breath of fresh air in today's design currents. The brutalist trend touches many areas of the design world from architecture to pieces of furniture, materials, and color palettes, this style seems to have earned a permanent spot on the design trend list.



What is brutalism exactly?

You probably heard the term floating around in some design-centric conversations. It is defined as a style of architecture or art characterized by a deliberate plainness, crudity, or violence of imagery. The term was first applied to functionalist buildings of the 1950s and 1960s that made much use of steel and concrete in starkly massive blocks.



Cool, cool. So, how does it apply to graphic design?

Brutalism in graphic design is a great way to create visual tension in your designs. It's so raw and unpolished that it stands out well enough to grab the person's attention. It's a great option when designing artists websites portfolios or posters.

I've been doing a lot of research lately and have been noticing/following people that are full on delving into the matter. A lot of them are creating posters (most of them daily) to showcase brutalist designs in combination of graphics and typefaces.

Here are a few of the accounts I follow to get inspired when it comes to this design trend.

"Guidelines for Brutalist Web Design
Raw content true to its construction

• Content is readable on all reasonable screens and devices.
• Only hyperlinks and buttons respond to clicks.
• Hyperlinks are underlined and buttons look like buttons.
• The back button works as expected.
• View content by scrolling.
• Decoration when needed and no unrelated content.
• Performance is a feature.

What is Brutalist Web Design?

The term brutalism is often associated with Brutalist Architecture, however it can apply to other forms of construction, such as web design. This website explains how.

The term brutalism is derived from the French béton brut, meaning “raw concrete”. Although most brutalist buildings are made from concrete, we're more interested in the term raw. Concrete brutalist buildings often reflect back the forms used to make them, and their overall design tends to adhere to the concept of truth to materials.

A website's materials aren't HTML tags, CSS, or JavaScript code. Rather, they are its content and the context in which it's consumed. A website is for a visitor, using a browser, running on a computer to read, watch, listen, or perhaps to interact. A website that embraces Brutalist Web Design is raw in its focus on content, and prioritization of the website visitor.

Brutalist Web Design is honest about what a website is and what it isn't. A website is not a magazine, though it might have magazine-like articles. A website is not an application, although you might use it to purchase products or interact with other people. A website is not a database, although it might be driven by one.

A website is about giving visitors content to enjoy and ways to interact with you.

The design guidelines outlined above—and detailed below—all are in the service of making websites more of what they are and less of what they aren't. These aren't restrictive rules to produce boring, minimalist websites. Rather these are a set of priorities that put the visitor to your site—the entire reason your website exists—front and center in all things."
