When it comes to web design, there are a lot of trends that are constantly changing from year to year. These web design trends are set up by the newer generations of designer that are creating their names. They are putting in a lot of time and effort into creating these trends that will hopefully change the entire design community. We recently spoke with brisbane web design company M2media and here are some of the most popular web design trends of 2017 that we have seen so far.
Mobile-First Approach to web design
As you can guess by the name of this trend, a lot of web designers are approaching new projects by making first a mobile version. There is a lot of reasons why this is happening, one of them I because it is easier to create a web design for devices that have smaller screens. When people create first designs for mobiles, then they can use that design as a reference to work their way up to bigger devices like tablets and desktops. The second good reason why more designers are using this trend is that mobile phones are becoming more and more popular all over the world and each year, they have to offer even more and better performance.
Nowadays, some mobile phones have achieved a lot of great things and thanks to the advanced technology, people can now use them to browse the web just as easily as a desktop. For example, in the UK mobile devices are names primary devices that people use to browse the web. Therefore, more companies that want to create a website, want to start by creating a mobile version because they know that it will be done much faster.
“Designing for Mobile is such a major component of any new website project today. We prefer to start with a mobile first design and then expand it out to fit larger screens” says Matt Ascough from Brisbane Web Design company M2media.
Visual mediums are what web designers use to attract people to their designs and there is no better way to achieve that than creating big and bold typography. This type of typography is the solution to all problems nowadays. In the upcoming years, we can expect to see much more over-sized titles that have some unique style. Having big and boring typography will not be enough, designers will have to come up with their personal styles of letters.
