We love talking about web trends, because it’s kind of predicting the future. The web design and development industry is usually very «liable»to the trends, which appear in IT world and change the flow. It’s important to stay up-to-date, flexible and ready for the changes (which always come!); and obviously, to follow the new tendencies and developments.

Minimalism

Minimalism definitely gives more professional look to a website. Very often less is more:this is a new approach, which is appreciated and followed by web designers.

Infinite Scrolling

Infinite scrolling (like one used in Google Images search) is really liked by the users. Scrolling more and more will bring you to the needed image instead of clicking numerous pages.

Focus on Responsiveness

Smartphones and tablets changed a lot in web-world. Technologies make us find new ways to surf the Internet: responsive feature makes you feel comfortable while browsing the web on different gadgets, desktops, and laptops.

Mobile Web Designing

If you are not eager to go for the responsive (adaptive) web designing (which is weird, I am sorry!), then at least make the design mobile-friendly. The website layout should be displayed equally well with iPhone, Windows 8 phones, or Galaxy line.

Design Transparency

CSS 3 features would be a great way out, if you do not like complex editing procedures in Photoshop. You can easily edit the design elements in terms of varying opacity.

Less Flash

It would be no news for you, that Flash is no more considered as SEO friendly. Recently, Flash has been replaced by HTML 5 and JavaScript. Moreover, Flash designs don’t work fine with mobile devices.

Large Background Images

Large photography in website background is definitely a trend in the web design industry. Why not use it for your website?

Social Media Appeal

Have you seen a website without social media buttons recently? Nope, I have not either! Use Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+ and many other buttons to help your website visitors easily link and share the content they like! Social media is one of the most influential web marketing tools! Don’t underestimate it : )
