Get to Know the Latest Trends in Web Design!

July 12th, 2013

modern web designWeb development is advancing by leaps and bounds. If you don’t want your site to be scrapped, you have to keep up with the trends. Come and take a look at the ruling web design trends of 2013, and use them to customize your website!

A Header Spanning the Page

Modern templates have a significant header stretched across the page. Excellent for strengthening your corporate brand name, a header also highlights your logo and simultaneously builds the atmosphere of subsequent pages. Therefore, your customers immediately see what you offer.

Everyone should pay maximum attention to the header of their website. The best scenario is finding a good graphic designer who will create a special header specifically for your website. You’ll see that it does wonders.

A Dynamic Presentation

A movable element can easily grab customer attention. Therefore, many of our users add a slideshow to the website or use our Serious template with the slideshow header.

A Bright Background

Recently, major trends focus towards websites that are tuned up with a light background. Our template Simplia for example, has cheerful colors which inspire people to feel positive emotions.

A World of Images

Surely you know that pictures attract much more attention than text. New trends in web design show websites largely made up of images. Notifications, that you added a new blog article, are already a thing of the past. Today you insert a picture right on the homepage, with perhaps a headline, and when someone clicks on the image, they’re redirected to the entire article. Just connect a picture with the link.

    Most of the sites you’ve picked have got strong and consistent
    typography. They happen to have a lot of big photographs too, but they
    are all very clean designs.

  • Erik

    This is a nice read. Although these are some good tips but I believe you can add more design trends to this list. For example one latest trend is Single Page website. I am working with “best app developers” and most of them emphasis on a design which is simple and attractive from user point of you. Also there should be easy navigation so the user can easily navigate himself to the desire page. Still an awesome post.

  • Hello Erik,
    thanks for your feedback – this article is a bit old, right now we have new editor for business and personal pages with modern looks and more simple designs – I would recommend to check it out ;-)
