When you visit a website, what makes you stay? Besides the real reason why you visited the site, what are the factors that affect your decision whether to stay or click the close button on the upper right side of your window? It could be the colors of the website or the font types and font sizes used. It could also be how fast or slow the page of the website loads. Basically, this is what makes web designs crucial. Even a single out of place color in a page can irritate a visitor into leaving.
With how the web design trend is moving, the use of images is now the key to your website’s success. But besides this, what were the ones that have always been followed by most web designers today?
The Basic Web Design Trend: Modern Grid Technique
Web designers have some techniques use which were considered as trends but are actually more on the basics if you want to have a successful website design.
The first trend is the use of grid. While this is considered as one of the most fundamental methods in web designing, its wide use today made it appear like a trend for most in the industry. The same people who created Helvetica, which is one of the simplest yet widely used font in history, also made the modern grid technique which is popular today. This technique is used by most beginners which reduces the time it usually takes for a website to be produced in terms of its layout and ease of use.
The Futuristic Approach of Responsive Design
More people have smartphones than they have laptops and computers, this fact makes the responsive web design very effective in the market today.
In the past, once you view a website on your phone, there will be some issues with the size of the website and its layout, since it was designed for desktop or laptop screens. Some sections would not be seen through phones since the screen is way smaller. With the responsive design though, the display becomes more flexible in whatever device is used to view it.
