Some Pointers to Make Your Website More Interesting
It is observed by some that the web design of the early years was kind of boring and monotonous, reasonably so because anything new is always subject to improvement. With the new contemporary web design trends coming out and conceptualize today, old website designs can be given a facelift to make it more exciting and attractive for viewers.
We observe more use and a little over the top of white space that search engine platforms find something undetectable, but people are watching where this trend will be going.
Minimalism is in and people are taking this design as not only for Amish people and barefoot runners but also among major websites too. However, take note that practice is necessary for minimalism to be perfected. And so, the application of the principles of basic design is still to be followed under the rule of threes as it major aspect, as in, by dividing the page up into thirds and positioning the content on these axes. For a minimalist website, a triangular placement is also suggested where different objects are in an offset triangular trajectories producing an image that is pleasing.
Another application to site design may not be new but its content of compartmentalizing is becoming a trend. A new flavour is added to the compartmentalizing content through this flat design approach and judged to be compelling, and it is described as bringing the content towards the edges of the page thereby making one image meet another, thus a seamless image is created.
The next trend is coloring of both sides of the line, a contradictory to our past lessons, and this is combined with overlapping images and text lines producing a knock out design.
The next trend that web designers are experimenting is the use of grids and other patterns to fill the white space without sacrificing the flow of the content.
The next trend feels like a title from a movie termed as going vertical, where in doing the content, there is much re-arranging and re-shaping of it in a fun process. The concept is to balance the vertical text to that of the horizontal text in order to create a sort of movement, and if done correctly, a viewer’s eyes will be led down the page to the highlighted content.
The so-called two-tone approach or trend is being applied today by web designers in their technique where a pastel color is chosen to be paired with a solid color. There are some sites now that use this technique on every page and element of the site that could be sometimes over the top, but it is the trend so why not.
Illustrations are in to balance out the minimalist concept, and this is looked as an exciting trend that both illustrators and designers love to know.
