The Latest And New Web Design Trends Of 2014

By Sher Adam

Lots of web designers are experimenting with new type settings and fonts. One designer said that in 2014 we will be seeing fonts with personality. Apple changed its design from a 3D, shadowed design to a very straight forward "flat design." And what Apple does, everyone else seems to follow, and so there are lots of sites coming out with the same "flat design" concept.

Web Design Layouts: Web designers have switched to using grid design in websites, an aspect believed to increase a website's usability. This design was first noted in Pinterest, and many websites seem to have adopted the same. This grid web design format helps make it easy for one to read everything within a website, and contains more visual aspects as compared to content which comes second.

Responsive websites have taken over a lot of space too, and not the newer trend will be to carry that model over to the mobile arena. Since almost 60 per cent of people searching online do so now with their mobile devices, it only makes sense to apply that statistic to searches and take advantage of it. The software is different for desktops and mobile devices, so there will be a concerted push in that direction for 2014.

The mobile devices will now be asking for emails, integrating with social media, sites will be faster loading and fast scrolling will help make the mobile sites more enjoyable and functional. There will be many more video presentations in 2014, with the thought of "Why read it when you can watch it?' With a mobile device, it will be easier to watch a video than read the fine print.

Responsiveness is the name of the game, and now it is moving to mobile. Roughly 60 percent of all searchers are doing their searching on mobile devices, so now the mobile apps are gearing up for the biggest mobile promotion yet. More email capture, scrolling sites, and videos instead reading, will be what people will be looking for in 2014.
