The Web Design Trend v 2.17

The Web Designing industry is quite similar to the fashion industry. Sometimes you see the advent of a completely new and weird fashion and sometimes old becomes the new.
From the flat design to the bright design, web design has always seen a change in trend. With the beginning of a new year, it’s time to focus on new trends.
We’ve spent years adding elements to our websites. But all they seem to do is cluster the website with unwanted stuff. This is why this year the plan is to focus more on content. Now that could happen either by removing ad-on completely or by reducing the space they take up.

1) End of basicity

The world of art moved from the elaborate era of baroque art to the simpler era of cubism. Similarly, we moved to an era of flat design but 2017 might see an end of this era. In our journey to move towards basic and bold designs, we have lost our creativity. As websites move towards basicity, they converge to be based on a single design. And we surely do not want all the pages on the web to look the same. Or do we?

2) Bold, Bolder, Boldest

The New Year is all about being bold. Be it your design, images or text. It doesn’t leave an impact if it is not bold. As its name itself suggests, bold things speak louder and clearer to the audience.

3) Bright Colors

Along with this, there is ample of room for color. As we go into minimalism, brighter colors are now being appreciated. It is not just bright colors but gradients that are coming back. The journey of changing Instagram logos serves as the best evidence as to why we are getting sucked in again by brighter colors.

4) Responsive Layout

With the need of responsive layouts to work on multiple platforms, it is essential to work on grids. This has a major difference in the way developer’s code. To the general audience, it is just easier on the eye.

5) Vector Figures

It’s also the time to go vector. Vector graphics are appreciated as they present an abstract form. Such graphics are light and take hardly any time in processing. Vectors are easily scalable, which means they will fit themselves into whatever space they are provided. This surely reminds me of Newt Scamander’s beast Occamy in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

6) Heading Styles

The one thing that is surely going to get innovative are the heading styles. Gone are the days when heading styles used to be plain and simple. It is time to call for various experiments in the heading styles. Like what about going without a heading itself? It is time for experimenting and to see what fits the best.

7) Unique Layout

The main thing we are expecting from 2017 websites is unique layouts.
The previous year just had no spice. It was the same old layouts being used again and again. This could be a result of people using the same templates over and over again. What this New Year wishes to see as a trend is new website design. This year we call for the designers to pull up their socks and work harder on providing new layouts!
So overall its time to get creative and let your brain go into overdrive. Pull the strings of your brain and see how simple and yet complex you can make things.
