TThe web design trends is ever-changing. Every day new and awesome projects are being published. Many of the trends from 2014 will continue to grow as well, and the biggest hit from 2014 in my opinion is flat design.
While many of the 2014 web design trends will be around for 2015 (and probably longer), I think it’s time to take a look at some web design trends that are likely to emerge in 2015.
Just a few years ago, scrolling was considered a no-no amongst most web designers. Now, most new site designs are longer in length. This gives designers more freedom to engage the user in creative content while at the same time making it easy for mobile users to use the site.
You will find this trend on a lot of websites created today, especially on their home pages. As mobile devices become more popular, we will see more and more one-page designs as well. To make the scrolling experience visually attentive, designers will often add some slick animations to the site as well, which brings us to the next point on the list.
Animations and story-telling
Creating amazing content for your website is crucial. Being able to present it in engaging and creative ways with animations and graphics will be just as important in 2015. A major web design trend in 2015 will be the story-telling aspect of a website. Combined with interactive design elements animations will bring a wow-factor to many websites in the years to come. And the technology for creating amazing interactive designs and functions is just beginning to see its potential.
The idea that a design is complete when all non-essential elements have been removed. And it’s not a stupid idea at all. Simplifying a design by removing non-essential design elements can be a good thing if done right. Some designers take this a step further, by eliminating design elements like background colors and images all together.
Very large typography
Gone are the days when websites presented its content in Times New Roman. Typography is more important than ever in 2015. The increasing use of creative typography in 2014 will continue. For 2015, however, I see large headings and fonts getting even larger. Visual statements using huge typography is not likely to be missed, so it is a great way to enhance the visual hierarchy of the website.
This is just a few of the trends I think we will see in 2015. It is going to be a good year for web design. If you want to know more about what I can do for your business, feel free to contact me or take a look at some of my web design packages.
