Have you noticed how many websites and themes successfully use variations of circles? That would be nice to learn why it happens so, wouldn’t it?
A circle isn’t just a geometrical figure; it has a lot of meanings. First of all, a circle is the symbol of the sun and the earth and the universe. Also, it symbolizes perfection, wholeness and peace.
There are different reasons why web designers use circles. To name just a few of them:
Circles are good when it comes to grabbing visitors’ attention and providing emphasis
Circles look fresh and unusual
Circles work great in a single color and two color designs
And now we encourage you to see websites and web templates which are decorated with circles.
