Brutalist web design

Brutalist Web Design is honest about what a website is and what it isn't. A website is not a magazine, though it might have magazine-like articles. A website is not an application, although you might use it to purchase products or interact with other people. A website is not a database, although it might be driven by one.

A website is about giving visitors content to enjoy and ways to interact with you.

I appreciate how the ideas behind Brutalist Web Design converge upon clarity. This is a challenge we deal with regularly with the apps PTG manages. There's nothing simple about showing the details of every single class offered for a given term. A design doesn't have to be simple, but it should be clear.
