Three Continuing Web Development Trends in 2016
Material design will continue to reign as the supreme leader in the wide world of web design throughout the year 2016! No kidding... material design dominated in 2015 and yes, it will continue to do so this year as well. It''s just the current nature of the beast due to people being virtually tethered to their smartphones and tablets, rather than sitting at their desktops for 12 hours per day. It also didn''t hurt that Google adopted this idea so readily. Alas, the Golden State Warriors-like domination of material design is not exactly revolutionary insider information. Let''s instead take a look at three web development for 2016 that aren''t quite as universally agreed upon already.
- Illustrations Instead of Photographs – They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well then, how many words is an illustration worth? Some modern web designers may argue that it''s actually worth more than a picture. An emerging trend reveals that illustrations instead of photographs, offer a more personal touch and are capable of engaging the user on a deeper level than a photograph. Therefore, illustrations are beginning to replace photographs with some success.
- Bolder is Better – The use of bolder colors and fonts is becoming increasingly accepted and even preferred by a lot of designers. What better way to enhance your brand image than through the use of vivid color and unique typography style? It appears that especially millennials prefer colors and Helvetica to beige and Times New Roman.
- Here Comes CSS3 – I know it seems like people have been waiting fort this to happen for a little while now, but CSS3 should be ready to make an actual impact soon. Visually, not a lot should change because of this, but the code that generates the layouts we all know and love should become much easier to use and more reliable.
