Changes in the digital world are so fast and rapid that the developers and designers can’t afford to lag behind. All they need to do is to make internet a prettier place for the common man which is also bigger, better and more functional.
After a thorough search, below are the trends that are set to become more prominent and visible in 2017.
Animation, one step ahead:-
Animation is no more an extra feature now and has become a potent one. It saw a kick in the last year and it seems to grow bigger this year. Animation should be considered before the first concept rather than after it.
Animation is a bit more than just an attention grabber in fact it can be effectively used as a directive tool for the users that compels them what to do next. It is a revolution in the field that not only makes the user experience enjoyable but extremely easy as well.
Bright color schemes:-
Web designing companies in Dubai know the importance of bright and attractive colors. Use of bright colors started in the last couple of years and 2017 will take it to a new level. Before, it was only a minimal, clean and careful usage of colors and most websites were white.
Spotify were quickly in action followed by Instagram who used the brightness of colors to their advantage. Bright colors are great for distinguishing and are very stimulating for the users and that too on a less busy website.
Scroll and keep going:-
Successful sites follow the notion of scrolling and going on. Apps like Facebook, Twitter and ASOS when used on mobile and tablets are all designed on the same function to be scrolled through. We don’t feel any hesitation in going down and down.
Scrolling on mobiles doesn’t bother us one bit because of its thumb friendliness and second nature now. Scroll through websites have many benefits like simple navigation, storytelling potential and they turn well on the mobile devices and tablets, etc.
If you are not taking advantage of videos in your websites then you are surely at a loss. Some negatives are also associated with the videos like slow loading of web page. Views on integrating videos in the design are mixed like against and also in favor of it.
Some are of the view that videos increase the bounce rate and decrease the conversion rate while others are against this view and wait 5-8 seconds extra in context of loading the website to view its content.
Material design, no flat design from now on:-
Google launched a new style language named as material design. Material design creates those designs that look realistic to the people by using shadow effects and the concept of depth and movement.
Web designing companies in Dubai has set their eyes on material design as up till now it’s only being used in the apps by Google, so this trend is expected to be seen in a lot more in the 2017 and the years to come.
