As a follow to my recent blog design trends post, I just found a tongue-in-cheek tutorial which shows you how to make a Web 2.0 layout.

Under the humour are these trends – which ends up being a very similar list to mine:

  • Keep the design simple
  • White background
  • Arial
  • Horizontal navigation with coloured background
  • Links invert on mouseover with a coloured background
  • Large font size for headers
  • Subtle yellow highlights for selected text
  • Gradients
  • Tag clouds
