Common Web Design Trends for 2014

Last year, web designers had a very grand time with a lot of new thoughts and concepts setting sail. Even though some concepts have sunk, others took off and built up a stable and long-lasting effect.

The trends that created big names last year will be just household labels this year, while promising and rising trends go on to get polished and refined by designers all over the globe.

What are the trends this year? Let’s check them out.

  • FLAT DESIGN THRIVES

If you consider this was just another craze, then it’s completely different. Flat design is a minimalist design on steroids. It’s all about making and keeping everything clean, simple and modern. By using a flat design, you are making sense in your web design. It has less clutter, more use of white space and generally, a better user experience.

  • A RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN

This web design will develop into a standard one. Clients will be asking for it and developers will be learning to code out requirements, and then consequently press on for it. It’s all about demand. Since tabs and smart phones are increasingly selling, there is a huge potential for marketing. You will see that even the smallest businesses will be talking about it, as it is seen very responsive in action on other websites.

  • SHOWCASING BETTER IMAGES

Web designers have been pressing on for better images for the longest time, but they have always had issues on the side of their clients. This year, designers will bring in higher quality, unique and more creative images, because of different reasons including the affordability, faster loading speed and access to high quality images.

  • PARALLAX WEB DESIGN IN POPULARITY

The days of the 960 pixel website are long gone. It’s all about the effect and making it big. Parallax web design accomplishes successfully with its scrolling mischief, strong and creative typo, as well as powerful imagery.

  • INFOGRAPHICS

This web design still is the best way of presenting data to clients. They present a lot of details and information in just a small space. They are eye-catching. This is why many businesses still ask to have this kind of web design. Clients like infographics since each of them has its own character. They combine typography, shapes and bold color schemes in a way that maneuvers viewers.

  • TYPOGRAPHY

This year, typography gets serious and is arriving at mainstream level. The increase visibility of mobile apps has been exposing us to every kind of typography aspects. Georgia, Helvetica, Arial and Times New Roman are no longer good enough.
