Top 5 Global Webdesign Trends of 2018admin
It’s a brand new year and developers are gearing up for a new year with an improvement over 2017. The year 2017 saw many advancements, including the mobile usage taking the lead over desktop browsing. This means desktop browsing must also evolve to stay relevant otherwise it may be relegated. We have compiled top website design trends that are likely to lead the pack in 2018
- Mobile First
Mobile browsing has now officially surpassed desktop. Almost everyone these days shops and orders on their smartphone. Mobile design has matured. The roll-out burger has become established, minimizing the menu for the small screen. You might have to ditch large, beautiful photos your client sends you in the mobile version, but icons are much more economical in terms of space and have become so common that the user has no trouble understanding them. And UX issues have become easier to identify and fix with micro-interactions getting you immediate feedback on your user’s actions.
- Color Schemes
Designers are going to be more “generous” with the usage of colours in 2018. In the time past, most designers were stuck with web-safe colors, more designers are becoming courageous in their approach to color—including super saturation and vibrant shades combined with headers that are no longer just horizontal but reimagined with slashes and hard angles. This is however encouraged by technological advances in monitors and devices with screens that are more suitable for reproducing richer colors.
- Defined Illustrations
llustrations are great, versatile media for creating images that are playful, friendly and add an element of fun to a site. Experienced artists can make illustrations that are full of personality and tailored to a brand’s tone—what all brands strive for in markets that get more crowded each year.
- Bigger, Bolder Typography
Typography has always been a powerful visual tool, able to create personality, evoke emotion and set tone on a website all while conveying important information. And now, because device resolutions are getting sharper and easier to read, 2018 should witness huge increase in the use of custom fonts. Excluding Internet Explorer, many browsers can support hand-made typefaces that are enabled by CSS for web browsers. The trend of large letters, contrasting sans serif and serif headings help create dynamic parallels, improve UX and best of all, keep the visitor reading your website.
- Integrated Animations
As browser technology advances, more websites are moving from static images and finding new ways, like animations, to engage users in their communication approach. smaller animations are helpful for engaging the visitor throughout their entire experience on the page. We expect to see more of illustrative animation in 2018.
