Latest Web Design Trends, The Road To Good Website Design (2012, Quick Guide) (Quick Guides For WebDesigners in 1 hour!)

In art, its history is clearly defined into movements titled after the prominent style of that time. Web design is slightly different. The prominent styles defining moments in time for web design are better defined as trends. The dominant trends of the moment define the popular design practices and styles of the moment, while also showcasing what can be done for the web at the time.

As all know, the internet is constantly evolving form of technology. It is the job of web designers and developers to be able to maximize their work, within the limitations of the web. So each different web design trend movement, if you will, was heavily influenced by what could be done at the time.

After reading this thus far, an understandable question might be popping up in your head. How is knowing any of this going to benefit me? Well, there is an easy answer to that.

To be able to foresee the possible future, one must first have a grasp for the present. To have a grasp of the present, an understanding of the past is required.

Web Design Trends(2010, 2011, 2012) is a brief look at the web design trend movements of the two previous years, and our current one. The three years covered here will be looked at in four different sections. These sections being: code and technology, layout and usability, graphics and typography, and social and mobile media.

Table Of Contents

Introduction 1 page
The opening section takes a look at how trends in web design come about. By taking a look at the reasons of why and how they occur first, a better appreciation for the history lesson of trends in years will be achieved later on.

Areas Covered 1 page
In this section, you’ll get a brief look into the four divided sections. Each section represents an important aspect of web design that is most influenced by the passing trends of the times.

Code and Technology 5 pages
As the name suggests, it concerns the advancement of HTML, CSS and the capabilities of physical technology, without which the trends would evolve at a much slower pace.

Layout and Usability 4 pages
Since the web is becoming an increasingly large part of our everyday lives, additional measures have to be taken in order to make our visits as easy, quick and painless as possible. In this section, we will be taking a look at the aspect of web design responsible for this.

Graphics and Typography 4 pages
Just like the artistic movements change in time, so do the aesthetics on the web. Typography has been included here because it has already become more than just text and it can function as a functional and decorative element.

Social and Mobile Media 5 pages
It’s no mystery that the web has gone mobile and people like to share things on their device of choice. For this reason, we need to adjust our way of thinking and create more versatile designs for the various available screens.
