Website design trends change every year and each time, something far more radical presents itself. Though, most of what we’ve seen in 2017 is likely to remain, there’re few modifications worth keeping an eye on. One must consider all possibilities that internet presents about web design.

It’s like taking human imagination on a roller coaster ride to achieve uniqueness and a competitive edge. Surely you’re all excited about technologies shaping design for upcoming year; let’s look at the much anticipated website trends to come in 2018.

1. The bigger the better

The single, most important and existing web design principle is “make it big” and this motto is adopted across top web development agencies worldwide. Still, many people argue and hardly accept homepage bearing few words atop an image or video. Even the navigation at times appears hidden, as a small icon or simply removed.

“Cinematic” and “Book Cover” are everyone’s desired flavours of web design trends because of aesthetics and pragmatic. As soon as the site lands, it’ll make an impression among users that’s quite easier to code. They work excellent for both desktop computer and mobile devices being responsive.

2. Multimedia is the rage

Designers and programmers worldwide are caught in a conflict to engage users with interactive multimedia but for most, the term nearly lost its significance. Flash was considered an ultimate platform to give a website an “aesthetic appeal” however today, TypeScript or HTML 5.1 is preferred allowing you to create any visual effect over the website.

3. The Parallax effect

Parallax went through tremendous shifts but all have one thing in common; pointer movement or page scrolling are used to give animation effects to a website. Most of the websites you see today are affected in more than one way. With animations and effects, don’t overdo it or else users are likely to repel.

4. The animated storybook approach

Animation sequence triggers when browser reaches a certain scroll point. A few elements are incorporated into the page or simply use fade-in effect. Some websites combined Java Script and lightweight SVG, presenting a visual metaphor that describes working of a product or service. Both concept and animation is amazing while page itself accumulate more or less 1.5 MB space. It makes a page interactive!

5. Flat design

Flat design has the honour of being “king” for multiple times and is still doing great. In smaller elements like menus, icons and illustrations; it’s simply wonderful. These aspects look good, are easily scalable and thanks to emerging technology to tweak icons, you can come up with excellent font styles.

What’s worth noting is flat design being not so “flat”! Designers integrate delicate textures, gradients and creative images to give a “wow” effect. The best part isn’t flatness of the ink but creative visual descriptions. Rather than imitating objects, flat design communicate ideas of a notepad via catchy, synthetic and fun visual that works well in various sizes.

6. The video advertisements

Either you find it frustrating or amusing, background video advertisements are growing trend in web designing. They appear either at the side, top or bottom of the page playing interactive, promotional content.
