With huge advancements in technology every year, the new concepts in design and development are bound to evolve each year. And 2013 is going to be no different. So here are few trends that should be in focus this year:
1. Responsive web design: Already in vogue since 2012, responsive web design is all set to be a front runner. Let it be of any stream, but a website will necessarily need to have great user experience on mobile and tables in order to connect with the masses.
3. Minimalism: Heavy websites with loads of un-necessary information and functionality are bound to make way to simpler, lighter and faster websites. The main emphasis is going to be on simplicity, minimalism, clear layouts, app-style interfaces, design focusing on typography, usability(user experience) of the website, less decoration, less skeuomorphic interfaces, flat style, flat colors
4. Inclination towards Video: With surging internet speeds and storage media capacity, more video trends will show up in 2013.
5. Large photo background: Graphic lover is really going to enjoy this trend of using large photo for website backgrounds. It captures the user’s attention and creates a long lasting impression as these are pleasing to eyes. And blending of large photograph with CSS3 transparency and some big, bold typography creates as cool look.
