Whenever I have an opportunity to look at the web design trends from all across the web, one thing that disappoints me always is they are all the same from last year, or probably not what you see around these days. I mean come on, animation has been always considered to be a big trend in enhancing a website, and that too even today. However, do you know how big a trend animation is? Seriously, if you really have a checklist of trends, and if you are going to include a full screen animation video into it, you better check out a niche range of top websites before doing so. No one likes to see an animated video anymore. There is the lot more than that. To prove it, let us check out 5 niche trends that are going to take the web design arena by storm.
1. A non scrollable full screen can be a difference maker
So finally, people are getting used to sites that are non scrollable, since they have to put in fewer efforts into site navigation. Imagine, scrolling those one page sites, till eternity, with a sticky header accompanying you all the way to the bottom. It is always refreshing to see pages wherein everything is present within the screen, and you need not to scroll for navigating to other pages. Nowadays, people are very busy, and non scrolling sites can act as a great time saver for them. Let us look at a few examples why this is great.
2. A headline residing in a sticky format on the sideways
This is a brand new trend, seen on very few sites. It is always best to check such kind of trends on sites of design studios, or agency sites. This is a style wherein you have a sticky headline moving with the text, as you scroll down. This is a wonderful trend that is found only on desktops and not meant for a mobile viewing. Let us look at a few examples why this is great.
3. Loading is everything about showing the logo
This is another huge trend gaining popularity nowadays. The only thing you have while the site is getting loading is showing off the logo. Let us look at a few examples why this is great.
4. Background images appearing in a disruptive manner
Imagine, the background images taking all over the site real estate. This is definitely, not a new trend. However, what’s new in this is when mouse hovers over the background, suddenly the background image starts showing motion. Now, this is an amazing trend. Let us look at a few examples why this is great.
5. Using animations over the top through a creativity touch
Since this is possible nowadays, why not to opt for it? Animations when introduced in a right fashion can work wonders, making the overall experience entertaining, as well as pleasing enough. Do it with great precaution since it can consume your loading time and speed, but do it over the top for making it all of them worth it.
