I’ve just recently wrote an article on UI/UX trends of the passing year, and — interesting enough — they’re intersecting. I believe some of these trends will die before the end of the next year, but some of them will linger on for couple of years more.
I’m glad you liked it.
As for the agency templates — well, they are for pretty much any business that provide some kind of service — be it a marketing agency, creative agency, etc. They are clean and well-structured, so anyone would find info on such sites very quickly.
Yeah, for some weird reason, while writing this, I was very focused on mobile notifications (maybe because my phone was in front of me on the table the whole time :D), but yeah — some of these tips could actually be applied to web-stuff as well.
