4 Web Design Trends You Can Expect to See in 2015

Trends come and go. But, one thing remains the same: everyone follows them. When it comes to web design, trends are no different. Web design is constantly changing and evolving. With this, each year brings different patterns that all websites need to follow in order to be seen as relevant. Web design trends for 2015 are likely to go on into 2016 too. But, if you want to ensure that your website is considered to be relevant, it’s time to get on board and take a look at the key themes of web design this year.

Trend 1: Scrolling Sites

Have you ever noticed that websites now have longer scrolling sites? As the pursuit for the perfect site is underway, it seems that the need for longer scrolling pages is becoming more prevalent. With responsive design being at the heart of web design, it seems that the trend for scrolling pages has transcended mobile and gone onto the desktop too. This is because the ease of design makes it easier for viewers to comprehend. One of the key trends that is not going away is simplicity within web design. Typically, this kind of theme is only used on the landing page or home page.

Trend 2: The Art of Storytelling

It’s no secret that content is going to reign supreme from now into the future. So, with this in mind, all web designers are going to be using content as part of their main site. The art of storytelling is back for 2015. Web design is going to focus mostly on content and the written word as part of the websites layout.


Trend 3: It’s Time to Ditch the Large Background Image

One of the more noticeable trends is the absence of large background images. In line with the simplistic elements of web design, it seems that the use of large and heavy graphic is obsolete. Of course, there will always be a need for imagery within a site. But, now, the focus is on the site itself as opposed to the images depicted. The best church websites and business sites all lack large images. Having a large logo or header is vital to clearing up the white space. Too much white space can be off-putting for a user as it seems as though the website is incomplete. Keep your logos large and bold and ditch the image if you want your website to be relevant this year.

Trend 4: Simplicity

Okay, so we’ve touched on simplicity throughout, but we’ve not gone into depth. When it comes to simplicity, the key to keeping your website on trend is to remove non-essential elements. Graphics, content and backgrounds are now less relevant. This isn’t a bid to be more ‘artsy’. The reason why websites are now more simplistic is because it creates a better user experience. This, in turn, reduces the overall bounce rate. Keeping a website simple and clean encourages people to use the site more in-depth. Now, the bold use of colour is a definite no-no.
