Is it just me, or nowadays design means content rather than graphics?

Hi guys, while looking over the web and over some ThemeForest themes, a thought has crossed my mind: the content matters more than graphics when it comes to web design.

Is this just a thought of mine or it is a trend?

Cheers!

Hi,

not really “when it comes to web design” but definitely when it comes to selling themes on themeforest. It’s about a combination of great design and fantastic images – beautiful people, crisp and balanced colors that match the scheme of the theme; fun or intelligent placeholder text won’t hurt either. I think this got more and more important over the years indeed.
It for sure is a pita for designers and developers likewise, unless they are also confident in content management – usually it’s more of a hassle nobody wants to do really as far as I experienced.

Cheers

Just like with everything else. If you want to sell something you need to present it as beautifully as You can. Statistical client does not know that the images are not attached to the purchased site and thought that buying such a product, which is in the picture. Simple, even primitive, marketing :)

Yes it is insane. furthermore Beauty beats coding quality and feature Nuts.

You can built a super functional theme with tons of features and in the end of the day the sales will be beaten by simple primitive spagetthi coded theme with “beautiful design”

Content is the The Queen, The King, The Prince and the Princess.
Content is everything and a good design is the one that forces its users to showcase their content in an elegant, useful and consistent way.
