Although, we have observed many latest trends disappear and re-appear in the past few years, we can make some predictions about modern web design trends that will eventually capture the design industry in future.
Here’s what we predict for the future:
1. Evolution of Flat Design
Long gone are the days when businesses wanted logos and icons popping up or down their websites to attract user attention. As more and more hand held devices are being adapted, designers are keen on constructing design elements that appear smoothly on flat screens. Thus, flat designs are currently the most sought-after element in web designing but the design industry rarely stays stagnant. With each passing year, users will begin to expect more out of the flat design. Steady progression in flat designing means layered designs to be more prevalent in future. However, the flat design in its most basic form is here to stay for a while.
2. Responsive will take over Mobile
The year 2015 is predicted to witness mobile internet usage overtaking the conventional laptops and desktops. So far, this challenge is being countered by a specific mobile website. However, a mobile site along with a regular web front means catering to two separate online campaigns. The future Google updates do not seem to have any room for two separate websites. Time is money and the future is all about how to save your time to create meaningful designs which are not only impressive but also make sure your purpose of creating an online presence is fulfilled.
3. More Scrolling and Less Clicking
When we mention the importance of scrolling, we cannot undermine the popularity of parallax scrolling. A good web design is the one which is remembered and talked about. One of the freshest trends to emerge in the web design industry is parallax scrolling. Many successful brands have already switched to parallax scrolling owing to the ‘wow’ factor it adds to their web front. Perfect for incorporating storytelling into your website, it is used to show objects or backgrounds moving in different speeds so as to create an impressive visual effect on the users. Many successful brands like KitKat and eyewear retailer Oakley have made spellbinding web designs with the help of parallax scrolling making it a favorite modern web design element.
4. Incorporation of HTML5 Videos
5. Less is and will be More
The future cannot be foreseen. However, the current trends and developments can make us predict the outcomes. The rate at which web development and designing is expanding, keeps us anticipating more inventive and exceptional design ideas coming into existence in future.
