Whether you are a web programmer, or you are just trying to keep up to date with your blog or website, there are some great trends that you will want to consider in web design for 2011.
Today, more and more people are choosing simplicity in web design. This includes everything from a simple color scheme to a simple navigation. Bright, flashing colors and a ton of navigation options are a thing of the past. The current thought is that the more simple a site is, the more attention it will attract. This is in direct opposition to previously.
There is a large trend in internet ready phones. In fact, the demand for these phones is growing, and because of this, your website should be accessible on the go. Having a website that is smart phone compatible is extremely important for keeping up business and traffic.
Font is important. Using fonts as a design element is something that has been in practice for a long time. This year, however, more designers are taking this further. Using typography as a large part of the design is a growing trend. Different types of fonts, laid out in fun ways is a great way to bring a different look to your website.
In direct contrast to the past, large headers are currently in. In the past, it was believed in web design that the smaller the header, the better. This gives you more seeable space on the page. Today, though, very large headers, sometimes ones that are interactive, is a very popular design choice.
