    I'm wondering what your favorite Web 2.0 style leaflet is because the funny thing is that I have seen so much posters in the web that are beautiful/have the Web 2.0 style but have NEVER seen a leaflet design like that before.

    What about you guys?

    Maybe I'm a little old and have lost touch with what the kids are into these days... I'm going to jump on in here and display my ignorance by asking "What is Web 2.0 style?"

    It's kind of the clean, cool interface that designers use nowadays in my opinion.

    The most famous Web 2.0 sites that started the revolution.
    http://twitter.com
    http://digg.com
    http://reddit.com
    http://vimeo.com
    http://youtube.com (You could say it is one.)
    http://google.com
    http://gmail.com

    Funny thing is that I can't think of any more but I know that there's tons of them out ther.

    The designs I'll put later on since it's 12:27AM right now and I'm still trying to print something with my DELL printer. 10 double-sided copies of failure. :\

    I'll also update the list of sites later on.

    I thought all those glossy styled icons etc were web 2.0 style :confused:

    note I see style and features differently

    Early web 2.0 referred to the everything glossy looking. Current Web 2.0 is now minimalist, generally user friendly, and makes use of instant technologies like Ajax to perform page updates in real time or validate a form more like a desktop app.

    Actually, the real definition of web 2.0 has nothing to do with design - rather, simple design is a product of web 2.0 which really refers to community and user generated content functionality.

    Glossy reflections and stupid things like that (which by the way is outdated) is just people who saw simple websites (because simplicity increases functionality) and tried to make them more graphic intensive without making them graphically heavy.

    One thing you'll notice about the list Rekhyt wrote is that all of them are community based websites where users generate the content in an easy-to-use way.

    Making a static page with big reflections and shiny graphics is NOT web 2.0. Unfortunately the real definition is continuing to change and will eventually mean nothing if people keep misusing it. There are many many design trends out there, don't make "web 2.0" just another one of them.
