Hottest Trends To Web Design In 2013

Responsive Layouts
                          The idea is to support all
                          devices from laptops, desktops,
                          smartphones, tablets, and
                          anything released in the future.

Retina Image Support
Apple first engineered this idea with the iPhone 4 and has since
applied this screen display onto their other devices, including the
iPad and some MacBooks.

Retina screens are basically twice as dense as any average LCD.
So they are the same number of physical pixels, but digitally
twice as many pixels can be fitted into the same physical space.

Single-Page Web Design
                        Single page design is a big topic
                        and covered under many
                        different categories. Obviously
                        there have been single-page
                        websites since the creation of the
                        World Wide Web. But over the
                        recent years we have seen this
                        trend evolve to sport a more
                        natural user experience.

                                                  Photographers or
                                                  even fans of
                                                  photography will
                                                  definitely enjoy this
                                                  design trend. It’s an
                                                  excellent way to
                                                  capture your visitor’s
                                                  attention and it can
                                                  look great when done
                                                  properly.

  • 6. Enormous photo backgrounds and Large images used for large impact visuals. Photographers or even fans of photography will definitely enjoy this design trend. It’s an excellent way to capture your visitor’s attention and it can look great when done properly. by Sameera Thilakasiri | www.sameerast.com | Twitter @ sameerast 6
  • 7. Lazy loading / infinite scrolling A number of social media websites have begun applying infinite scroll effects onto dashboards and timelines and user feeds. This effect was gaining traction due to the popularity of Twitter and Tumblr’s unique layout style. And now more recently Pinterest has also adopted this infinite page scroll on their homepage. by Sameera Thilakasiri | www.sameerast.com | Twitter @ sameerast 7
  • 8. Vertical Scrolling Vertical scrolling is easy, convenient for all the mobile users. Vertical scrolling is quite user friendly, efficient and definitely allows easy navigation. Apart from all this, another trend that is expected to hit 2013 is vertical scrolling of menus and buttons. by Sameera Thilakasiri | www.sameerast.com | Twitter @ sameerast 8
  • 9. CSS Transparency The new CSS3 properties have allowed for opacity edits on any webpage element. This means you have control to generate transparency in any modern web browser – no Photoshop required! This trend of web design transparency was recently discussed on Codrops with some very enlivening talking points. by Sameera Thilakasiri | www.sameerast.com | Twitter @ sameerast 9
  • 10. Digital QR Codes The abundance of mobile smartphones has led to a surge of QR Code apps. This stands for Quick Response Code and has developed from the older UPC barcodes. You will find these tagged everywhere from restaurants to event venues and automobile sales lots. by Sameera Thilakasiri | www.sameerast.com | Twitter @ sameerast 10
  • 11. Detailed Illustrations Newer design trends are all about catching and holding one’s attention. I feel that illustrations perform this task brilliantly. The problem is finding a designer who can make such impeccable works of art, or even teaching yourself. by Sameera Thilakasiri | www.sameerast.com | Twitter @ sameerast 11
  • 12. Mobile Navigation Toggle When speaking of responsive design one of the most difficult questions is how to build a solid navigation. You want to give your readers direct access to all your important links, without flooding the page making it unreadable. It is also a good idea to keep your responsive navigation hidden away until it’s needed. by Sameera Thilakasiri | www.sameerast.com | Twitter @ sameerast 12
  • 13. Fullscreen Typography Earlier I mentioned using big oversized photographs in the background of website layouts. This trend can be extended to focus on typography as well: designing your webpage text so it fills the entirety of the browser. Some users may find this annoying. But this is not often the case if the layout is fitted perfectly for super-large text. by Sameera Thilakasiri | www.sameerast.com | Twitter @ sameerast 13
  • 14. CSS3 Animations The CSS3 transition property and all the related browser prefixes offers CSS dynamic effects just like JavaScript. Designers can now animate effects on the page based on different CSS properties. I have seen a lot of nice hover effects and form input fields using these transitions the right way. by Sameera Thilakasiri | www.sameerast.com | Twitter @ sameerast 14
  • 15. Circular Design Elements The trend of circles within website layouts is something newer and has been given a lot of attention recently. Designers like circles because they are clean, neat, and generally fit into any layout block. You can build patterns and even fix your page elements into circular designs (eg. user avatars, share buttons, post dates, etc). by Sameera Thilakasiri | www.sameerast.com | Twitter @ sameerast 15
