Trending Web Design Techniques

The web is a rapidly revolving space. Technologies and development techniques could change everyday. Greater tools are showing up to improve the designing of people. That is why web development & design patterns and techniques is starting to trend within a short period of time.

Here are the latest web design trends:

  • BOOTSTRAP. A free and open-source front-end web framework for designing websites and web applications. It contains HTML– and CSS-based design templates for typography, forms, buttons, navigation and other interface components, as well as optional JavaScript extensions. Unlike many web frameworks, it concerns itself with front-end development only.


  • PARALLAX SCROLLING. Also known as “Asymmetrical scrolling”, is a technique in computer graphics and web design, where background images move by the camera slower than foreground images, creating an illusion of depth in a 2D scene and adding to the immersion.


  • BIG AND BOLD TYPE. As the design world comes to the consensus that our focus should be on content, more and more websites feature lines of resonant, inspiring copy set in type that’s just as big and bold as the statement itself.


  • CREATIVE LAYOUTING. Designers worldwide have realized that people visit websites for their content — whether it’s raging tweetstorms, thoughtful long-reads, or the latest “user-generated” meme — and that design’s ultimate role is to present content in an intuitive, efficient, and “delightful” way.


  • COMPLEX LAYOUTS IN GRAPHIC DESIGN. If we want to know the evolution of web design, we should refer to the evolution of graphic design. The only thing you need to know is understanding how these new web layout methods should work in the world of responsive design.


  • CONSTRAINT-BASED DESIGN TOOLS. Responsive design has completely transformed how we browse and build for the web. With obvious exceptions like Webflow, most of the popular design tools require you to simply rebuild the same screen over and over for different device sizes and resolutions.


  • MORE AND BRIGHTER COLOR.  Designers sought ways to infuse more personality into their design work that still worked within those stripped-down aesthetics.


  • UNIQUE LAYOUTS. Overdramatic as the web-design-is-dead argument may be, you can’t blame any creative for seeking innovative ways to present content to readers. And one of the most enticing methods for breaking out of the box-centric layouts many blame responsive design for is the broken grid. This approach seeks a way out of the meticulously aligned and “boxy” layouts we’ve been seeing a lot of lately with a variety of what might seem like visually jarring techniques.


  • MODERN RETRO. Whether it is pixel art, vintage typography or 80s and 90s inspired imagery; retro with a modern twist is in right now.


  • FLEXBOX. his relatively “new” CSS layout module offers both incredible responsive-friendliness in its functionality, but also makes a lot of sense to visual designers used to manipulating objects on the canvas with the align and distribute tools offered in the likes of Sketch and Illustrator.
