The Most Important Web Design Trend of 2013

Web Design Tips No Comment

packageThe art of making predictions is another way of setting oneself up for a fall, but I am so certain of the prediction that this article will make that I am sure that there is no chance of setting myself up for anything. The reason predictions are so difficult – particularly in the technological arena – is because things move so quickly. Fashion trends (and web design is influenced by fashion trends) are particularly fast-moving creatures. Bearing in mind the speed at which technology races past, this is a combination that causes these types of predictions to be notoriously difficult. But, without further hesitation, here is the prediction in question: broad background with limitless scrolling will be the most called for web design trend in 2013.

 

It will happen. It has started happening already. The article will now take some time to detail the varied reasons behind the current and predicted further success of this compelling design feature.

 

Broad backgrounds with limitless scrolling

 

Web Design Trend

A web designer who chooses to make the most of this current trend in web design aesthetics is one who chooses to make the most of the available space in which they work in. Instead of a plain background, the backing of the website is a classy and well-chosen high definition image. Another trend in web design is simplicity, and by choosing a broad background a web designer finds the perfect middle ground of designing a simple and, at the same time, aesthetically pleasing viewing experience.

 

A large and striking image as a background captures a visitor’s attention better than many potential features can. Many ways of attracting a person to a website can sometimes agitate the viewer – such as an involuntary and automatic audio track – but an image is one that captures the viewers attention in a way that the viewer is amenable to. Of course, this is only if the image blends in well with the design of the website, but each individual web designer will be responsible for that. It might take some planning and a wisely selected image, but many web designers have proved that it can work superbly, so there really are no excuses.

 

Limitless scrolling – or infinite scrolling, as it is sometimes known – is a trend that has developed hand in hand with the broad background one. It is a feature that exemplifies the image showcased in the background and better helps hold a person’s attention. Limitless scrolling causes the website to be more consistent, because the image remains fixed in one place, and consistency is a major advantage for any webpage. It is something that web designers all over the world will be striving to achieve.

 

Another option is limitless parallax scrolling. It has been proclaimed as the modern user-friendly way of thrusting the website at the forefront of what is fashionable. The website is continually loading as the user navigates down the page. Users are singing its praises, so one should expect a large number of websites using this technique in 2013.

β€œAfter over two years of research we chose Simplio. We are so far very satisfied. These people answered the phone on a Sunday and fixed a problem that was not even their fault. It was the host company which I had chosen that had caused our site to go down.”

I cannot even imagine having another company managing my Presta shopping cart.

β€œThey are now part of the Diastasis Rehab business team after working with them almost a year now. I cannot even imagine having another company managing my Presta shopping cart. After a bad experience with a programmer, I needed a new programmer (one that knew prestashop shopping cart) and most important one that I could trust. Finding all three was a difficult process! Lucky for me I found them. I cannot say enough about the diversity of services that this company provides. Every step of the way they make amazing suggestions to increase my sales and they get back to be right away either by email or phone. They have even created a simple and easy check out program for Presta Shop. They are actually a one stop shop! They updated my SSL, are setting up and changing my server to a dedicated one, setting up streaming of my DVD, website design, creating a specific program for address verification on Presta cart and handled the integration of Presta cart with my fulfillment house. I am now working on developing an APP with them”

Simplio really helped me out of a jam.
