An infographic on web design trends was posted on TemplateMonster a short while ago. If you haven’t seen it, you can check it here. It shows how web design trends have changed over recent years.
Back in 2004 websites looked a bit different from those we use today. They featured cluttered designs with chaotically ordered elements. Quite often, the sites were overloaded with various visual effects. As a result, it was somewhat difficult to focus on the content and find the information in which you were interested.
During the same period of time, pale color schemes started growing in popularity. Actually, this approach turned out to be quite effective, and it’s no big surprise that it is widely used today.
Flash technology was also incredibly popular during those years. In the 2000s it was as important for web designers as CSS, Java and jQuery are today. Flash was the most effective solution to make a site look more alive and dynamic.
Since that time, IT has come a long way and evolved into a practical science. One of the trendiest directions of 2015 is material design. Originally, it was introduced by Google. Along with monochromatic colors and micro-interactions, the material design sites ensure a striking look and unmatched performance for any business project.
As mentioned above, TemplateMonster decided to return to the subject of web design trends and introduce the same idea in another format. If you are interested in this niche and want to know more about the evolution of web design, new ideas and trends, you are going to like what TemplareMonster has created.
