10 Web Design Trends You Cannot Wait to See in 2017

What is web design? The first thing that must come to your mind is how the websites got prospered into becoming what we see today and how they will look like in the future.

One basic reason behind the evolution of websites design can be the customer’s requirements and other can be credit into the account of competition.

What a user see or feels about a website can surely be calculated by analyzing the bounce rate and the average time a user spends on a web page, the lesser the bounce the better is the business.

Here I am going to tell you the most innovative trends that you are going to look at in the coming year in regarding the various aspects of a website:-

Innovation in the terms of menus and navigation

What is the perfect design for a layout to perform best in the market?

The perfect layout cannot be conjured up by your regular novices working overnight a day or night, It needs to be up to the level which can only be marked by the better user interface and ease of access.

For this we constantly need to make some tweaks and turns at every level of abstraction e.g. Once we place our menus in the form of some tiles or at top in the form of some quick links we realize later that it needs to look good in order to function as we wanted and to achieve this, It simply is not enough.

So what’s good with knowing that when we can’t decide what is best for us?

The simplest answer to this can be found by evaluating the website by the specks of a user. I’m sure that’ll help.

To scroll or not to scroll

Usually, people likes to go with more scrolling with less clicking in order to achieve best user interaction with the website but this trend is changing these days because people don’t want to feel hectic towards browsing a website and there is quite a big possibility that the content they are looking for is residing at the bottom.

You simply don’t want the user to get bored with long hours of browsing a website just to find their relevant content and you simply can’t put buttons everywhere because it will ultimately lead you to more user bounce off.

So what do you need to do?

You simply need to analyze user needs and sort your buttons in accordance with the popularity from high to low with equal weight to the scrolling so that your website is neither too long nor too short.

Modularity in designing a website

The website design is just a chain reaction with one thing leading to the other just like a human body is evolved from a fetus to a baby to a mature man/woman, The website also doesn’t get made all at once and by defining tasks with their functionalities at every step it becomes easy for a designer to help make the process easier.

The key to a good website design can be found in a great man’s words named Brad frost.

Flatten the design

Flat design is a style of interface design emphasizing the minimum use of stylistic elements that give the illusion of three dimensions (such as the use of drop shadows, gradients or textures) and is focused on a minimalist use of simple elements, typography, and flat colors.

e.g. Google changed its logo over the years and you might have noticed it all through these years but you didn’t know why not till now…

The study reveals that newest design has more portability and looks better on the variety of devices, this happened just because of managing the space and sloping at the various letter and I’m sure that it will be made better in the future.

Golden age for material design

We challenge ourselves to create a visual language for our users that synthesizes the classic principles of good design with the innovation and possibility of technology and science, this is material design.

This spec is a living document that will be updated as we continue to develop the tenets and specifics of material design.

The material design follows three basic principles and these are…

- The material metaphor is the study of the tradeoff between design and space.

- Material design should be bold with good graphics and intentional.

- The motion through the pages is key to a good material design.

Forms and inputs just got wider

Much as I disagreed with Facebook’s idea of allowing the login option to appear at the corner of the page, this trend came right by.

More and more sites have already planned or planning to go with this approach because this seems to get a better response from the users with better access and visibility too.

Ditch the stock elements because you run the show

Since the adoption of stock elements on the websites such as stock photography or icon sets the world is changing around us and the web design kept up with the newest trends in the market e.g. many websites are ditching the use of predefined stock elements over something which looks more realistic or relevant such as images of their own offices.

As we can see that there are companies trying to make their mark in the global market we simply can’t afford to risk our place by saving the effort of finding something much more interesting.

Clever, Rich but Full of Emotions

As much as the websites are thriving to make themselves appear on top of your search box they just can’t stake out the fact that the user is looking for a companion that will make his/her experience more interactive.

To achieve this many website are adding more and more graphical human emotions with an equal amount of subtleness, that way it doesn’t overshadow the content.

e.g. The heart emoticon in Facebook to let the person know if you love the picture or content.

What’s good with just a nice face lacking in essential features

The website looks astonishing but what if your content just doesn’t fit in requirements of the user?

In that case, your website becomes just a glowing puddle of mud.

So make sure your website have good quality content also with some great features.

Embedding design languages into the browser itself

Some web designers are constantly trying to come out of that shell of adobe illustrator and are trying to be in the game.

To do this there are many well known simple front end languages such as HTML, CSS etc. are there to your rescue.

This trend is a new kid in town which helps the designer to develop a relationship with the web browser and for it to obey his commands.

This was our quick analysis for the upcoming year make sure to share with us about what you feel.

Coober Pedy

The name Coober Pedy originates from an Australian aboriginal term for “boy’s watering hole.” That is interesting because there is so little water in this desert town that it is about the most expensive commodity to obtain. Coober Pedy is the largest opal mining complex in the world. It is located in the territory of South Australia. Along the national road A87, the town sits about halfway between Adelaide on the southern coast and Alice Springs, which is way up in the Northern Territory.

Mining of opal gems began in 1915 and it continues today. This has been going on for so long that the area in and around Coober Pedy is a labyrinth of tunnels, more than a quarter million of them in the 1999 count! Since so many of the tunnels are vacant, many town residents simply move in to occupy them in order to get a cheaper dwelling and to escape the searing desert heat. The tunnel homes, which the locals call dugouts, forego the need to continually run the air conditioner. There are many above ground dwellings too, but over time, the newer dugouts sport three bedroom fairly modern living that is almost indistinguishable from an outside home. The caverns are walled in, and a home front is placed at the entrance, where the door and windows are located.

The population is about 1700 today, and not all of them are miners. There is a small, but growing tourist industry. The town has a hotel, and many folks stop by for an overnight between other more appealing Australian destinations. Local jewelers sell the polished opals singly and mounted in jewelry. There are a couple of museums, an art gallery, and two churches. These and other establishments are situated underground! This appeals to tourists. Visitors can tour the “breakaways,” elevated areas that afford a breathtaking view and photography opportunities. Some underground scenes from “Mad Max, Beyond the Thunderdome” were filmed in the dugouts. Some scenes of “The Red Planet” were filmed in the surrounding desert. Most likely someone there will sell you an “I dig the dugouts in Coober Pedy” tee-shirt.

The organized townspeople passed an ordinance to block large mining operations. Any individual or family can move to town to mine opal, but your mine can be no larger than 165 square feet in size. I find that to be interesting, and it fits with the town heritage. From the early 1900′s to today, adventure seekers, loners, and folks who want no beaten path to trod upon have come from all over the world to sink their shovel here. Many planted their DNA too. The present generation of several longstanding families call the place home and likely will continue to do that with succeeding generations. Today, 45 nationalities are represented, mostly from Eastern Europe. There is also a thriving community of aboriginal people who mine opal while they try to both fit into the modern Australian world and maintain their tribal traditions. It is easier for them to do that in Cooper Pedy, a place that slowed down and mostly let the rest of the world go by.

Web search to find some fascinating photos and stories. Read about the mystery of some early 1900′s miners who dug their mine and found a fortune in opal. They back-filled the shaft where the wealth was located, left the area, and never returned! No one knows who they were or what happened to them. In 1968, a homeowner expanded his dugout into the fill dirt, which was easy to shift, and discovered the lost fortune in opal on the other side of it!
