Web Designs - What's The Trend Now?

Let’s face it, by now you would agree that there is no running away from the vast World Wide Web. All of our businesses are now via the big interweb, when that happens, it is safe to say that your web design plays a super important role in attracting your client’s attention.

With that being said, here are 4 design trends that we see trending in the year 2017.

1.) Bright Gradients

Sometimes, the simpler things help increase the aesthetic values to the most duller visuals. With just a simple two colour gradient overlay on a dull picture could turn it from ‘meh’ to ‘wow’!

2.) Simple Texts

Minimalistic and simple, while stunning visuals do garner the awe from the public, it’s hard to separate information from clutter. Websites like Danish agency B14 takes away the pictures and the traditional menu bars at the top of the site and pictures to bombard their visitors with straightforward information about their company’s purpose and samples of their works. It’s a statement in broad daylight, ‘We’re straightforward, no BS.’

Clever.
