However, synchronously with this change in web design paradigm, another idea gathered a lot of attention from design professionals. Existent for quite some time (after all, the whole concept is not truly original) but first brought into the spotlight by Google’s information hub, Google Now, the idea of cards which stand for chunks of information which are easily digestible and just sufficiently informative spread like wildfire in the world of web and mobile app design.   It would not be fair to call Google Now a new idea, either.

In the early days of the web, design was completely different. Function took place over style because of the limited resources we all had at the time.
