I live in a city with quite a lot of Brutalist architecture and I passionately hate it.1 So is it, like, hypocritical or whatever that I actually really kinda like the Brutalist trend in webdesign? Or is that just a sign that I’m old and nostalgic for the heyday of Geocities aesthetic?
Probably the latter, let’s be real.
For the record, my Tumblr layout is Brutalist-inspired (monospaced fonts!). But, like. More pastel. Pastel Brutalist. Pastelist!
- It’s ugly! It’s alienating! Why does anyone think this sort of thing is acceptable? [↩]
