It is observed by some that the web design of the early years was kind of boring and monotonous, reasonably so because anything new is always subject to improvement. But today, as further developments are constantly out, there are now web design trends that will make our websites better than they were originally designed.
It is observed that white space is somewhat overused now and search engine channels find it a little off, but everybody is on a wait and see attitude.
There is now a minimalist vibe nowadays that shows minimalism is not anymore for barefoot runners and Amish people but also for major websites. However, take note that practice is necessary for minimalism to be perfected. And so, the application of the principles of basic design is still to be followed under the rule of threes as it major aspect, as in, by dividing the page up into thirds and positioning the content on these axes. There is also the triangular placement for a minimalist website, wherein various objects are positioned in a triangular trajectories thereby creating a pleasing image.
Another application to site design may not be new but its content of compartmentalizing is becoming a trend. This flat design idea has enhanced the compartmentalizing content approach, and whereby the contents are brought to the edges of the page, thus creating a seamless image when image meet the other one, and is observed to be a compelling design.
The next trend is coloring of both sides of the line, a contradictory to our past lessons, and this is combined with overlapping images and text lines producing a knock out design.
Web designers nowadays are not only sticking to the white space but are also incorporating grids and other patterns and still maintaining the flow.
The next trend feels like a title from a movie termed as going vertical, where in doing the content, there is much re-arranging and re-shaping of it in a fun process. The idea is to focus on balancing the vertical and horizontal text thereby creating a movement, and thus your eye will go down the page to the appropriate content.
The next trend that web designers are applying is the two-tone approach, where they combined a pastel color with a solid color. There are some sites now that use this technique on every page and element of the site that could be sometimes over the top, but it is the trend so why not.
Illustrations are in to balance out the minimalist concept, and this is looked as an exciting trend that both illustrators and designers love to know.
