The questions that we often ask is – “When was the last time that you redesigned your website”? And more importantly – “Why do we need to redesign our website if it is working fine”?
A website that has a unique design might not be as effective if it is not mobile responsive. Or a mobile responsive site might not attract visitors if it has a large loading time. To attract as many visitors as possible, a website should keep in touch with all the latest trends and habits of web designing. On an average, a website needs a facelift every 3 years.
2017 saw a large number of websites moving towards a mobile-friendly platform. This indicates that 2018 is going to have a total mobile utility. Let us take a look at the latest trends in web design that are being followed in 2018.
Vibrant and Vivid Gradients
Bright and vivid colors have always been the most eye-catching part of the internet. But as more as more developers are getting attracted towards bold colors – the websites will see a use of super excessive color usage. –The advances in monitor and screens technology are also one of the main reasons in support of this trend.
Depth and Shadows
As the trends have changed over the years in web design, the classical flat design has rendered out of taste. But again, with the technological advances, the shadows and depth play a significant part in web design. The 3-D effects and exaggerated drop shadows make a website stand out from the rest.
Mobile Friendly Web Design
As I mentioned at the start, the client move to mobile has left a lot of websites out-of-date. So it is important at this time that you design a website that is one hundred percent compatible with not one but multiple mobile devices. Even the technologies available for mobile-friendly design have advanced a lot and it is quite easy these days to design a website that is apt for mobile users.
Website load time is the most important thing. The user does not want to waste that time looking at a blank screen while your website loads. So it is important to optimize the content of the website to decrease the load time.
Incorporating these latest trends can boost your website user flow. They give a fresh vibe to your website which in turns lead to the growth of your business. Brand trust and confidence of the user are also boosted if the designs are updated regularly.
