Go big or go home – Full screen design

With the improvement of internet connections, images can load a lot quicker and websites can take advantage of high quality HD images. Full screen design usually contains a large graphic that fills the computer screen. This design is powerful, elegant, chic, and is sure to grab the attention of visitors and spark their interest to browse the site.

Keep calm and scroll on – Parallax scrolling

Web designers are always looking for ways to create a creative and simplified experience for viewers. Parallax scrolling is a visual effect in which the background of the website moves slower than the forefront of the website. In this trend, the content is easily accessible since it is a single page and the visitor only has to scroll for more information, no clicking or searching. This makes the browsing experience much easier when looking for information on your website and turns visitors into customers.

Are you mobile? – Responsive design

According to huffingtonpost.com / smartinsights.com, more than 20 percent of Google searches are now being performed on some sort of mobile device. 25 percent of Internet users only access the internet via a mobile device in the United States. Smart phones and tablets aren’t the only thing you’ll need a responsive web design for, 2015 is diving head first into new technology such as smart watches and smart fashion bracelets. Is your website responsive and mobile-ready?

A responsive design is a design that provides a great web browsing experience on any device. Instead of adjusting the browser to fit your screen or creating separate websites for mobile and desktop, it automatically adjusts to the visitor’s device.  This saves tons of money if you are thinking to redesign your website because you will only have to create one and it also helps in google rankings.

I hope these design suggestions help when you are thinking of redesigning your website and makes it easier for you to stay on top of trends for coming years.
