Web Design Trends in 2016

As the design trends are quick that lasting for a very short time with the evolution of the web design industry. It is not guaranteed that if something popular this year may be same for next year. Actually with the increase of devices on which we view websites constantly increases, web designers constantly follow this to fulfill the dynamic requirement in web design. So let’s have a look at the predicted Web Design Trends in 2016.


1. Material Design

Launched by Google, Material Design uses shadow effects and the concepts of movement and depth in order to create designs that appear more realistic to the user. The goal of Material Design is to create clean, modernistic design that focus on UX. The Flat Design is still a growing and popular design trend, but with its minimalistic look, Material Design has a lot that makes use of depth and shadow, which allows for more depth than pure flat design. As we have seen most of Material Design projects limited to app design, but recently Google announced Material Design Lite, that is more suited to websites.


2. Responsive Design Still Expanding

The responsive design that was merely concerned to work on desktops, tablets, and Smartphone’s sometimes ago. With smart watches, TVs, and home appliances, responsive designs need to be work on these devices. As the each device has its unique challenge, the tablets and Smartphone’s have very familiar interaction systems. But on a smart watch, the navigation system is totally different. Actually watches won’t be able to use Smartphone website designs, and a website optimized for desktops won’t necessarily work when viewed on a smart TV. So again this is big challenge for designer this year to expand response design to come up with improved responsive design to be viewed on all devices.


3. Large Images

This again will be the major trend in 2016 to use large images as backgrounds. Actually large images have taken the internet by storm. The images will take center-stage in interesting new ways. The beautiful techniques will emerge for responsive re-sizing, extracting major colors for backgrounds, and optimizing images for minimum server load.


4. Scrolling


This is again the most impressive trend because websites having parallax scrolling effects can perform better. Using scrolling instead of clicking as a navigation technique is great on several levels. It requires less page loading, but more importantly, it makes it easy to make smooth transitions from point to point with no shocking refreshes.


5. Flat Design

The flat design trend will also be in full swing in 2016. As many of argues about the issues with flat design in the area of user interfaces but really its amazing technique for web design. Flat design also offers itself to minimalist principles, which in turn results in websites that are lean, clutter-free, fast, and content focused.

Really we’re much excited to see what new trends, styles, and stories 2016 will bring for us, and what web design trends will fade out within the next year and beyond!
