Changing trends in web design via web development
Websites are an integral part of any company’s profile. A company’s website is a mirror to what it does, its achievements, and future plans. Also, a visually appealing website draws in more customers. So, it is imperative that the website looks aesthetically pleasing and is easy to navigate.
This is where the web designing part comes in and the designs are brought to the fore by web development. For this to happen, the web developers should be abreast of the latest trends and technologies.
Web development trends that have brought about an innovation in web design are:
a. Card-Based Web Design: A very popular form of web design, a card-based web design is responsive and hence ideal for mobile devices. Top tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Pinterest are using card-based designs.
b. Machine Learning: It is on its way to becoming a vital part of web design, with the development of open source programs. Machine learning fulfills a variety of purposes, the website layout being one of them. Multivariant testing powered by machine learning is capable of testing automatically the site and site optimization at the customer’s end.
c. Static Website Generators: A live website can be created using these static website generators, just from plain text stored in files. There are many advantages of this upcoming trend as it allows increased security, enhanced website speed, management of increasing website traffic and ease of deployment.
d. Virtual Reality: This is another trending topic as far as web development is concerned. The gaming industry has been taken over completely by the virtual reality technology. There are endless possibilities in this technology and more is yet to come. Leading tech companies like Mozilla and Google are making the transition easier of virtual reality to the web. Consequently, there is going to be a large number of VR driven applications as and when the standards develop.
The web is a dynamic space where everything is constantly evolving. As a result, the techniques that are used to execute the changes will get modified too. The trends mentioned above give an awareness of the trends in web development that change the dynamics of web design.
