The web design industry is constantly evolving, and trends that were all the rage just a few years ago can quickly become ancient history. Web design trends are highly representative of the aspects of the modern user experience, as they cater to the way in which people are interacting with media and information on the internet. Hours and hours of research go into the development of new methods and ideas for designing websites and mobile applications. This research is typically based on site analytics and statistical data that’s being garnered with each click on a site, and live user interaction plays a huge part in determining what works and what doesn’t.
These trends are the result of more than just trying to make websites pretty – though that’s a major component, and a major bonus. Things like ‘flat’ design and responsive websites also contribute to making a website more functional. So, while you may not need to completely redesign your website every year, small updates to your interface can help you stay closer to some of these new design trends, and help keep your users happy.
