Getting Down To Basics with Websites

Some Pointers to Make Your Website More Interesting

Some considered the early development of websites in the internet as monotonous and boring which is actually a normal outcome for something just newly developed. But today, as further developments are constantly out, there are now web design trends that will make our websites better than they were originally designed.

There is now an out of control of white space that SEO finds bare, but it remains to be seen.

Major websites are taking on the minimalist vibe today that proves minimalism is not just for barefoot runners and Amish people but also on the internet. But be aware that you cannot just easily project a minimalist image because this image needs practice before application. Meaning, you still have to follow the principles of basic design like its major aspect of rule of threes like dividing the page up into thirds and content are placed on these axes. Serving well for a minimalist website is the triangular placement, wherein you will offset different objects in a triangular trajectories giving a pleasant outcome.

Another application to site design may not be new but its content of compartmentalizing is becoming a trend. This flat design idea has enhanced the compartmentalizing content approach, and whereby the contents are brought to the edges of the page, thus creating a seamless image when image meet the other one, and is observed to be a compelling design.

Coloring inside the lines only was the guideline in the past, but nowadays, site designs re coloring both sides of the line, with overlapping images and text lines, creating a great design.

The next trend that web designers are experimenting is the use of grids and other patterns to fill the white space without sacrificing the flow of the content.

Looking at another trend is by going vertical in re-arranging and re-shaping in doing the content. The concept is to balance the vertical text to that of the horizontal text in order to create a sort of movement, and if done correctly, a viewer’s eyes will be led down the page to the highlighted content.

Another trend today done by web designers is using a two-tone color, like choosing a pastel color and pairing it with a solid one. There are some sites now that use this technique on every page and element of the site that could be sometimes over the top, but it is the trend so why not.

Illustrations are in to balance out the minimalist concept, and this is looked as an exciting trend that both illustrators and designers love to know.
