We also use circular elements on our site and several patients have said they like it. However it was more an unconscious decision to use this element. I think that you can’t go wrong with circles as they are timeless and stand for harmony. Having seen some outstanding sites on this page that use this element, I’m thinking about upgrading the design to make it more interactive. This list was a huge inspiration, so thank you
Thank you for the kind feedback. I’m glad you found inspiration from this list to go ahead and update your own design at some point.
