The web design world, if you pay attention to many of the css and webdesign gallery sites, can seem a bit insular. Seemingly every few months, a new design accouterment pops up out of nowhere and is seemingly on every site. A past example of this is what I’ll call the ‘Crackerjack 2 for 1 Special Sticker’. Here are a couple examples I dug up:
Both of these sites are well designed sites and I’m not picking on them, I’m just using them as examples. For all I know, they were the first to use the element. But for a while, these ‘stickers’ were everywhere. As an element, the meaning of them is often lost on me, but that’s beside the point. And if you’ve been paying attention lately, the crackerjack sticker has been replaced by the peeling crackerjack sticker. It’s basically the same, but instead of a sort of star shape, it’s round and is actually peeling off the screen, implying that you better hurry up and take whatever offer is within its bounds or it just might fall off. Three sites I found that do this are:
Perhaps the next trend will be another sticker on top of the old sticker, which is also peeling and maybe a bit torn. Perhaps it offers something even free-er. I can’t wait.
So these are three sites I found, what are some others?
