Pinterest was really the inspiration for others to create pinboard-style website design, then it was taken further to grid-based design, not necessarily a uniform grid. It is the case that images grab our attention more than content ever can, and also more than headline text does.
Website design actually fell behind print design in this regard, and it has taken a while to realize that image-heavy designs can better engage viewers. Grid-based website design is forecast to continue trending throughout 2014. Some of the reasons for this besides the power of images are the relative ease of creating responsive sites from grid-based designs, and that this style really lends itself to flat design, two trends that are also forecast to continue throughout 2014. Here we have collected a selection of grid-based website designs that are very well presented and very effective.
