Web designing is a constantly improving process. It is not restricted to certain codes and themes. It has to be improved in order to meet the changing trends. There is no alternative to improvement to keep you grounded in business for long. Clients are becoming more and more quality-conscious and concern about visibility inspires them to follow new patterns and styles to hog the limelight. Depth in work is something that talks a lot about quality and dedication. The urge to try new methods to deliver the best results keeps the designers engaged in the job of modernizing the process of web design. Some modern techniques likely to make a mark in 2012 are:
Though Flash is the favorite tool for making flashy images:
HTML 5 is gaining respect among the sculptors to develop a decent web design. Function is given preference over the look and depth in terms of catering to viewer’s expectations takes the front seat. HTML 5 is able to provide operability on all the famous platforms like IE 8, Chrome, Safari, Opera and many others. HTML 5 connects data with video/ clips/images more efficiently and designs are delivered faster than before. Animations are becoming a cakewalk with the help of CSS 3. chirp.twitter is the best example that explains this point really well. Web, mobile and tablet are the famous targets of designers to keep up with the pace.
We are more likely to find “see the page on mobile” spread everywhere over the net. Shrinking of web page sizes and fitting into various resolutions is the most sought after trend of 2012. Use of graphic design to represent numerical data will do the trick for developing less space consuming web designs. Allowing the user to access the page even on move will be the real achievement of the designers and they will reshuffle all the designing techniques to arrive the best possible solution.
Simple Color Codes:
Consumers do not want to get distracted with flashy designs. Material is more important to them than the presentation. It is being believed that quality is translated more prominently in functional aspect than in the look. Nobody wants a flashy design to display the content. Hence, use of simple color schemes in word contouring and images will be the call of every designer to get the nod from the client.
Parallax and 3-D Effect:
Use of images and items to display words will be the core of the designs meant to display logo and important text. Figures are able to tell a story is going to be the belief this year and so word contours will be replaced by cartoons, figures and items to depict the hidden meaning. Parallax effect is inclusion of moving images in different layers on the web page to produce an overall 3-D effect. Use of CSS 3 and HTML 5 is advocated to achieve this effect.
Typography and Big Images:
Size does matter when it comes to creating an impact on the minds of the target audience. Use of huge images and flashy colors in the background will be implemented to draw the desired picture. Words matching with the images like Majestic displayed by a lion and huge displayed by an unusually tall tower will be some of the concepts of web designing to provide an artistic look to the web page. Unusual word pattern, distortion of letters and using of shades around the words will be the favorite templates to make an impressive website. This is where Flash will continue to be in the tool box of graphic designers.
Creating interest in the minds of consumers makes the perfect guideline for the developers. There is no short cut to client’s smile and great presentation skills are mandatory to get the consent of the client. Value for the money is the real profit earned by the investor and providing value generating platforms to the sellers justifies the job of Web designers. Web is one of the most-used and trusted platforms and failure to create an impact there can turn into failure of the whole campaign. Hence, keeping up with the current trends is necessary to get the repeat orders or to win confidence of the clients.Tags: creative, Design, Mobile, web
