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.

MCLI Server “Farm”

A tour of the mcli server "farm", more of an agglomeration.

Starting from the left, we have "Jade", a 1.33GhZ Apple Xserver that runs CogDogBlog (weblog plus a few more), the Feed2JS site as well as virtual hosting Maricopa eP, an electronic portolio system. The Xserve also does some QuickTime streaming, such as our examples of Digital Stories created by faculty in a summer workshop.

Below the table, the left tower is Azurite, a Mac OSX server (1 GHz) that mainly hosts project files and FileMaker databases used my our office staff. It runs as a web server just a copy of our Writing HTML tutorial as well as a smaller amount of QuickTime streaming.

The tower on the right is a 664 MhZ Pentium 2, also know as "Realgar" where I test a few new applications, run an evaluation license of Helix (Real Media server), and some things like a copy of my Kiwi Wiki.

To the right of this is a 20 minute APS battery backup. Just in case your power goes out… for less than 20 minutes. All the servers are set to reboot if their power goes out.

What is really cool is a new Belkin OmniViewKVM switch (left of the monitor), a 4 way switchbox so you can use one Keyboard, Video, and Mouse to switch between 4 computers– the nice feature here is the ability to connect to either USB (Mac) or PS/2 (the old PC) connections.

Finally, on the shelf above are 4 FireWire hard drives, used for backups of the two Mac servers with Retrospect. Each server rotates backups between two external drives.

The PC server backs up over the ntetwork to another server upstairs, which then does its own backups on a dedicated tape drive.

ScaleMP: Use RAM plus vSMP, not flash, to boost server performance
There are hypervisors that chop a single server into virtual bits, and other hypervisors that take multiple servers and make them look like one big virtual one. ScaleMP's vSMP hypervisor is the latter kind, and can be used to create a shared memory x86 …
