The core principles of web design, such as usability and consistency, remain constant. Some trends, however, should not be overlooked. Here’s a look at some of them.
The World is Flat
Minimalist, flat design (as opposed to highly stylistic Web 2.0 design) has become dominant in recent years and isn’t likely to go away any time soon. This characteristic is especially common among smaller design elements such as menus, icons, and illustrations.
Alive with SVG
The XML-based Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format enables sharp and easily scalable web design elements as well as animation that help sites come alive.
With new devices such as smart TVs and even watches making an entrance, the ability to provide a seamless browsing experience regardless of the user’s platform or screen size becomes more significant than ever.
