9 Amazing uses of Perspective

Alt Text


With the dominant trend of flat design for websites these days its easy to forget some amazing use of 3D perspective in websites. The use of depth and perspective makes for some interesting ways to structure a website. I’ve always loved the interesting things 3D depth and perspective could make. With all the different kinds like point perspective and isometric designs, it is easy to always find something new and exciting. While flat design and minimalism are nice, the amount of work and art put into creating cool 3D creations is amazing and something that I will always appreciate.
