25 Examples of the “Mountains” Trend in Web Design

Read the full post

I’ve showcased the trend of landscape images in web design before, but has anyone noticed how popular mountainscape images seem to be? Unless the site is based on the topic of rock climbing or a brochure for an area of natural beauty the use of a mountain photograph seems quite unusual, but it’s actually quite common. Today’s web design trend showcase features 25 web designs that all include impressive imagery of mountain scenes.

    Most of the uses of mountain photography on these sites are very appropriate (ie. outdoor clothing company, national park, etc.). However, there are a few sites where it seems like a bit of a disconnect. Why are you showing mountains when a.) it has nothing to do with your brand and b.) you are advertising yourself as a digital agency? It seems like a bit more thought needs to go into certain image selections.
