    All of the clean and modern-looking websites leave exactly the same feel. One way to get noticed is to be a bit different, or at least not to follow the trend blindlessly.

    Yes, a big image/illustration taking a lot of space on the screen for no reason might be annoying if other factors are not taken into account (for example, how long it stays on the screen, how often the user sees it and so on) but it also can benefit the overall impression of the product even if not relevant.

    Breaking the rules lead to better results sometimes.

    As someone who’s bank has recently suffered a pretty, but pretty useless redesign, I agree with this article.

    Absolutely. There's this feeling you get where people want their websites to look like other websites, because if it's too simple or clean, it won't look real. Only real sites have animations and big banners and smiling faces and tons of copy and noise.

    This should apply to details large and small, but especially small, because that shit adds up quick.
