Creative Website Design Trends for 2015

2014 is coming to an end, we’ve all worked with the changing trends in our website designs, but as this year ends there is more innovation in the web design trends that is paving way to 2015.

There are our predictions for Web design trends that will be followed in 2015:

Responsive Designs

This has been the norm of websites throughout 2014, viewers like to go back to such websites that are interactive. This is why WordPress themes have become successful, a theme that is designed to respond ensures maximum accessibility of your customers regardless of the devise they use, and responsive word press themes allow your website to be adaptable on any screen-size.  So far, this feature is not simply considered as a trend, it is now becoming a necessity and a new standard for creating business websites. In the near future it is predicted, undoubtedly, that Responsive Designs will continue to dominate the design market for all devises starting from desktops to small-screens.

Type kits are becoming very affordable, sometimes even free in the case of Google Fonts- this means there is more freedom for designers working with a tight budget to bring in the best in their typography skills on to the website design table. Small fonts are completely outdated leaving space for clearer large fonts.

This will enable WordPress theme designers to include more typographic flexibility in their themes. And in the coming year of 2015, everyone is expecting to see more WordPress sites with clear large texts and Stylish typography.

Full Width Background Images

A creative way that has been used by several website developers in the past year is by bringing their designs to life with the help and use of page-width imagery , and a hi-definition photo as the background. Large images are vivid and eye catching, that is why they attract more audiences and makes the ones who are on your web page stay for a longer duration

This also means that in 2015, probably, many full width background images are going to be used to gain more viewership.

Performance

While this trend is not firmly a “visual trend”, web developers are going to make such websites that render faster and faster. Technical Dev Ops skills aside, there’s a lot that can be done in the CSS and JavaScript build out to assist in making things run more efficiently. In 2015 sites that take too long to load, and don’t have the proper design elements in place, won’t work.
