There is a lot of exiting stuff going on now regarding websites.
Flat design or one page websites, started with windows 8 and now it is hot.
With smartphone and tablet usage, has skyrocketed in the last couple of year, and for many business segments, it has already overtaken desktop traffic.
There is no sign this will change in the nearest future, just take a look when you are out on town, a café, a bar or on the bus.
Of course, you cannot only make a website for mobile device users; there is also a lot of desktop users so don’t forget them.
However, have this in mind when you are choosing website design.
I can only recommend using a responsive website design, this way the design will adapt to the screen size of the device used.
Do this right and you will see your ROI increase more than 100%. We have seen this for several clients.
Scrolling and yet more scrolling….
Get used to it, it is growing rapidly and typical seen with flat design, designers love it with mobile users in mind.
Parallax scrolling, horizontal scrolling, column-based scrolling and infinite scrolling are all things that we will probably see more off.
Less text, more graphics like icons and images, now we see a movement in websites getting rid of text and really more on images and pictures.
This is great for many websites, but I still think you need to consider your website users and what they are using your site for so you do not scare them away.
My advice, revamp your website and make it responsive and remember to add call to action buttons.
