Brutalism Design is the bad influence we all need(imaginarycloud.com)

    I’ve seen many redesign projects over the last 5 years that have been big on minimalism and design trends, but completely fail to be any better than what replaced it. The worse culprits are the ones that offer almost the same UX, but with just bigger fonts and more whitespace. I know there are more than a few well-designed apps from the 90s that if they were release today would be accused of being brutalist, and work just as well.

    This article is great – yes not everything should be brutalist, but not everything should be Material Design either. The web can be anything, so let it be. This reaction was going to happen, I think most designers could have seen this coming – so I say embrace it and enjoy it.
