2012 Web Design Trends
We are almost close to 2012 and it’s time to say good bye to 2011. We all are waiting to take New Year resolutions. The only thing that is constant is change. Trends come and go; the future of website design is unpredictable. In fact New trends are arriving and the traditional formats are being replaced.
Let us assume these patterns for all webpages:
Web pages consisted of some solid stripes, fixed writing style etc. Fonts were not much bright in presentations. Also, there was absence of proper color schema. Almost every one followed some standard formats and no variations could be seen. This typography is changing. Dynamic patterns are slowly moving into pages. Line heights are rearranged. Another point is with regard to shading, which has deepened. Designers are aware of their true potential to choose the right one.
Websites were once the place of messy meeting by pages and cluttered content. Also Facts were sandwiched between pages, causing a lot of confusion. These produced only chaos instead of satisfaction. 2012 will surely rectify these issues as website developers are trying to make a social face to their websites. Recently, Google has started penalizing for ads above the fold, which seems to be a good trend. Minimal graphics and flash effects were taken away. All these provide a good online customer service and increased easiness.
Graphics and Photographs are losing their luster. The unfair and unoriginal backgrounds that lose all personality of websites are trending to change. Website designers are tending to rely more on illustrations. Brushstrokes and rough lines make each page unique. It gives more artistic and real hand drawn effects to the website. Also, it can represent a creator’s natural talent.
In the virtual world connected by networks, people seek to trade facts and figures with ease. Social network add-ons are becoming one among the most popular trends available. These allow users to instantly post information to their social network accounts. This helps the pages to stay simple without any disorganization. We can set our expectations to the top in 2012, and hope it will offer reliability with quality.
