Trends can be cool, savvy and make you website appear up-to-date, even edgy.  Each year there are a number of new trends that drive website design.  Below are a few of the 2016 web design trends you may wish to ask your web developer to include in your next design refresh.

Flat Design

  • Brighter colors, less shadows
  • Use of simple fonts and typefaces
  • Use of ghost buttons … outlines only, that change color when the user hovers, or mouseovers the button More whitespace and fewer elements on each page

Simple Fonts - Sans Serif is the way to go

  • Simply put - it is just easier to read … especially on mobile devices
  • Larger font sizes is a must … Search Engines will ding you for fonts that are too small and don't work well on mobile devices

Hamburger Menu - think mobile

  • Users are fast becoming familiar with the mobile icon that represents the MENU (again, due to mobile usage)
  • Some PC design layouts are using this menu structure … but save it for your mobile responsive layouts

Don’t just follow the new trends because they are the latest fad.  Really think about the new trends in terms of which ones will work the best for your user base.
