The Hottest trends in web design to watch out for in 2013

In this article I’d like to delve into some of the hottest trends in web design that are getting more and more popular in 2013. All the designs are reflection of culture and our expectations for user interfaces. The trends I’m going to share with you mirror the most favourable ideas in web design communities. But it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should blindly follow them. Every web designer should have his/her own opinion when it comes to designing a website, therefore take these ideas through the lens of your own creativity.

Responsive layouts. This trend started to be widely used in 2012. By now it’s reached its peak popularity. The idea is to create layouts that will ideally match all forms of digital media such as laptops, smartphones, tablets and any other device that will be released in the future. A majority of web designers usually think of uniform web designs that are built in a way to perfectly run on all environments. But that’s not the whole idea. Responsive layouts should add something extraordinary to the design when it’s viewed on a larger browser’s window.

Retina support. A big number of developers switched to building their designs for retina devices. Apple was the first enterprise that engineered this idea with iPhone 4. Since then, this screen display has been applied to many other devices including iPads and some MacBooks. Compared to LCD, retina screens are twice more dense. In practice it means that you can actually fit digitally twice as many pixels as there could be fit in the same physical space.

Fixed headers. Fixed headers can work literally on any website. We talk about networking websites, blogs, design studios and even private companies. Such design looks really great and appealing to the visitors. In addition, it allows web users to easily navigate your site without the need to scroll down the pages to find a navigation bar.

Those ones who are a great fun of photographs will enjoy a trend of having large photo backgrounds. In the present days one can see a lot of websites that widely use the idea of big oversized photography in the background. It does look great and it’s the best hotspot to catch visitors’ attention. Big pictures can be very pleasing on the eyes when blended into the design properly.

The new feature of CSS3 makes it possible to control transparency of the site. Now you don’t even need Photoshop to do that! This trend will obviously find its followers this year.

The newly designed websites are all about catching users’ attention. And there is no better means to do that than illustrations. They do this job brilliantly! The only problem that may arise is to find a professional web designer who will manage to create such piece of art without cluttering up your site. Illustrations can bring about different moods in a website. Besides, all illustrations should harmoniously blend into the branding.
