Web Design Trends Every Designer Should Know

New web design ideas and trends are being developed rapidly to offer visitors a better experience. This article lists some of the latest, most popular web design trends.

Personal, corporate, social and business websites are now more visitor friendly by incorporating new features. The innovation of faster computers, smartphones, portable devices, highly supported web browsers, e-commerce options, social life on the web, and faster internet connections have facilitated this evolutionary process. Now surfing the web and living on the web is much simpler and more beautiful. This article examines new trends in the web design industry.

All Device Support:

As the difference in the number of visitors using desktop computers, laptops, smartphones, notebooks and tablets is decreasing day by day, websites that support all devices without losing any significant structural or stylistic features are being widely developed now.

Large Image or Page Background:

Websites that need excellent presentation, style, and scrolling effects now use very large image backgrounds. Formerly limited to websites related to decoration and beauty products, this feature is now widely followed for almost any type of website.

Bold Color and Contrast:

Black & white or rather blue & meanwhile the internet era has ended. We are now looking at a website that is much more colorful and uses an artistic combination of bold and contrasting colors against a white background or image. Interestingly, the use of icons such as buttons and gradient icons is also replaced by clear and simple icons that are easily visible on any device.

Minimal Web Design:

Now designers avoid getting flooded with pages, especially home pages, with tons of gadgets, text boxes and images. Only core products / services / themes are highlighted. In addition, innovative ideas, animations, and images are being used more and more to replace highly descriptive text content.

Fixed Header Bar and Vertical Navigation:

The navigation bar still saves visitors time, especially when using devices that are relatively difficult to scroll. Additionally, fixed bars can create a site-wide graphic effect which can be of great help to brand building.

Parallax Scrolling:

The CSS3 feature helps designers to create parallax scrolling effects where the background scrolls slower than the foreground. This creates a great animation effect.

Infinite Scrolling:

Continuously loading content onto the page as the visitor scrolls down will save the visitor time and help him stay on the site for a longer period of time. In addition, when the page loads continuously, visitors can enjoy better reading and socializing effects.

Typography and Large Text:

Now designers are expanding their imaginations to create beautiful web typography with excellent font combinations. Designers no longer rely solely on classic fonts and display styles. Also, it is now common to use very large text that almost fills the computer screen.
