As an Atlanta web design team who’s seen it all, we know one thing is for certain when it comes to the digital world – constant change. Maybe your website is up-to-date now, but will it be when 2017 hits? While no one can predict the future with absolute accuracy, we have a few trends in web design we think you’ll see next year and beyond.
Clear, concise message. The home page is generally the page that gets landed on most by those in search of your product or service, and it should deliver the most important message, capturing the visitor’s attention immediately. Consumers want to know within seconds what you can do to help them!
Responsive design. While this is far from a new trend, it will continue to be vital for businesses who want potential customers to be able to access their website using any device, regardless of screen size. Further, we may even see design that’s age-responsive with content, navigation, and more adapting based on the user’s proficiency, competency, and age!
Uniqueness. Forget cheesy stock photos and hire a photographer if you need to. Authentic photographs of your business, employees, interaction, etc. combined with animations and fun illustrations will make it easier to relate to customers – and they’ll love your originality.
Content management systems (CMS) will continue to reign supreme. As systems such as WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla become more customized and advanced, it’s easier for you to add or edit content and make other updates whenever you need to. Once your website is designed to your satisfaction, you don’t have to wait for someone who’s more “technical” than you are to make any necessary changes!
Videos are currently used by about 87% of companies who market products/services online, and this will only continue to grow. While some prefer to read content, others prefer videos for learning. No doubt one reason for the increasing popularity of videos is increased Internet speed and the availability to a wider range of users.
Your website is the “hub” of all your online activity; it’s where consumers learn about your company, your history, the products you sell, your integrity, and much more. In order to compete, you have to stay on top of the latest design trends! At EBB Web Design, our Atlanta website design professionals help you do just that.Google+
