    Half of these aren't even trends in 2017? "Boring Typography"? "Image Carousels"? "Aggressive Pop-ups"? "Obnoxious clutter"? ...Yeah, those are all things that have been around for ages that you should still just avoid.

      I was hellbent on using boring typography this year, guess I have to use that new interesting typography instead.

    I find it pretty funny that the company's own site uses:

    1. Video Backgrounds
    2. Hides their menu options behind a hamburger
    3. Uses Futura as a font
    4. Has an almost 16mb page load on the home page for not very much content
