A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words: Image-Heavy Website Design
Using images to tell a story is nothing new, the expression ‘Use a picture. It’s worth a thousand words.’ appeared in a 1911 newspaper article. So we have known for a long time that pictures can get the point across easily and comprehensibly, and this has been used and abused in the surge of infographics that have been created in recent years.
It is no different in the world of web design. For industries such as photography, fashion, designers (of all things), and many more, the best way to express yourself in as little space as possible is usually by creating an image-heavy site. In today’s article we have gathered a selection of such sites, and have tried to show how designers and developers approach this style of design in different ways.
