That’s good to know and I would love to see it. Get the right scented candles going early and your 99% there.
Your client make have loved it, but what did his 176 tigers think of it?
These labels though are often very loose in some ways and there is an overlap of design ideas, styles, trends, or whatever the label is. A boldly coloured large text Bootstrap site with some negative margins content could easily be described as traditional, brutalist, overlapped, broken grid. The bottom line is that if your client buys into it then, it’s exactly the right design. Not many clients could even communicate the style they want and if they do, then that’s what they must be give.
The image I posted at the top is a rare example of 2 design styles side by side and if you examine each Bootstrap band and then examine the broken grid or overlapped version, as you break the design down, you can see how an alternative approach might look. Most RW users would not know where to start on achieving this effect anyway. It is way overdone in the image and also is not done by someone who fully understands how to achieve the full effect or lacks the skill to make it work.
When an overlapping or broken grid layout is done well, it can have the benefit of fitting more content into the same height as a Bootstrap layout. The typical 3 column with a gutter and padding in each column, image at top and text underneath, is very wasteful of space and when it collapses to 1 long column, it gets even more wasteful of space. By overlapping images a bit, running headers across a page into an image, etc, you can end with a peasant to look at efficient layout. The benefits are increased as the layout needs to collapse because the 3 collapsing to 1 restriction are removed. So that is a genuine advantage such a layout I would say.
