3 Website Design Trends for 2017 (and 2018)

Now that we’re in the middle of 2017, it’s easier to look back at the last 5 months to see what are the popular web design trends of this year. What’s more important, we can guess the trends that will be “in” even in 2018. To analyze these trends better, we’ve asked some of the best experts in website design Huntingdon can offer to share their vision with us. Here’s what we’ve found out!

1 – Let content shine; opt for clean layouts. Several years ago, websites were simply showing themselves off. Modern features, scrolling effects, animated designs were nice, in a way that they let everyone know how creative and arty their web designers were. But, when you visit website, are you really interested in its aesthetics or the content? Therefore, current trends focus on letting the content come through clearly and cleanly. The designs with well use of typography get bonus points. It is to expect that semantic design focused on user experience and information clarity become increasingly popular in 2018.

2 – Both designers and developers are important. If you had asked people about the importance of web designers and web developers a few years ago, they would have undoubtedly said that web developers were crucial. Nowadays, we know that design’s taken a more powerful role when it comes to shaping business. It became clear that designers and developers have to act together to make their project work. More collaboration calls for better communication. And, yes, this trend is here to stay, so find the way to communicate and appreciate each other more.

3 – Colorful and bright! Bright, bold, fun colors are the best answer if you want to infuse more uniqueness and personality into your design while following the rules of minimalism. With gradients, this colorfulness and brightness became even more fun and aesthetically pleasing. Minimalism has actually become more detailed and complicated. There’s a chance, we’ll be seeing web designs that resemble canvas art. Basically, this means that if you’re designer who’s fed up with minimalism, you’ll be able to meet all the modern design requirements, but with more diversity and expression than ever before.
