5 Trends in Web Design to Look Forward to in 2015

Posted In Webmaster - By Techtiplib on Friday, November 28th, 2014 With No Comments »

As anyone who has ever designed a website, worked in programming, or has a simple knowledge in graphic design will tell you, web design is a dynamic process, and as such, it is constantly changing. This is what’s great about web design, but at the same time, this is what makes it more challenging. If you don’t keep up with the times (and trends), you may very well be left behind.

If you are running a business, whether you are located in London, Newcastle, or Cheltenham, you have to have a superior website that showcases the best of what your business has to offer. Your website, after all, is your virtual address, and potential clients and customers today are even more selective and demanding about what they want to see on your site.

Web Design Trends

That being said, here are a few trends to watch out for – and look forward to – in 2015:

1. The responsive website 

Responsive design has been making waves for the past few years, and with good reason. With responsive web design, your website can stand out and get noticed. In fact, responsive web design has now become a standard for great websites. If you are looking to revamp your existing site or are having an entirely new site built for the first time, responsive web design is the way to go. 

2. Bigger, bolder, better typography 

A few years ago, having a beautiful typeface and impressive fonts for a website was considered quite expensive. The same is not true today, thanks to different type kits that allow fantastic typefaces and fonts to be the norm, and to be more budget-friendly. Even those who are on a budget can now benefit from better, bigger, and bolder typography that instantly grabs the attention of any visitor.

3. More beautiful images for website backgrounds and videos 

In the same vein, images are better than ever nowadays as well. Try to look through a few popular consumer websites, and you will see the focus on bigger and bolder images for backgrounds and videos. Great background images go well with great content, and deliver a more powerful, impactful message to visitors to your site.

4. Scrolling through a website vs. clicking

Mobile web use has increased rapidly in recent years, and web design has gone along with the change. Scrolling through a website is much easier now, and it is quickly taking the place of ‘clicking’ through a website. The great aspect about being able to scroll through a website on one’s mobile phone or tablet is that it is easier, it decreases load times, it is inherently intuitive, and makes for a more interactive experience.

5. A more personalized experience for visitors

Cookies have always been used to display content that is more relevant to repeat website visitors. But today, the strategy of cookie use has experienced a change and is more elegant than ever. You can use cookies to remember what repeat website visitors have read and commented on in previous visits, making their experience in your site more personalized, helpful, informative, and interactive as well.

Web design Cheltenham specialists like Montpellier Creative know all too well the importance of great web design. So whether you are looking to spread the word about your business in your local area in Cheltenham or are seeking a more global audience, it pays to know what to look forward to – and what to ask for – when it comes to web design.
