Web Design Trends Will Take Over In 2017

“If you are not ahead of the times, you are behind them”

Just like any other creative fields, web design is always evolving with the passing of time. It’s essential for web designers to know what the current and upcoming trends are. It helps you stay ahead the competitions and meet your clients’s expectations.

Think outside the box with video

If a picture paints a thousand words, then a video can do that hundredfold. Everybody loves video. To make my point clear, you can read a report from Google which said that 74% of all Internet traffic will be video by 2017. Unbelievable, right?

More animation and GIFs, please!

If you want your website to rock in 2017, you still need to stick with animation and GIFs. They will bring your website to life, create the one that can express your own story in a more visual, engaging and interactive way.

The human eye loves motion. How many times do I need to repeat that saying? That’s why in this post, I mentioned animation, GIFs or video above. However, sometime these may waste a lot of bandwidth and make your website slow.
