Trendy Web Design
With you again web design trends 🙂 Publication of all articles was slightly delayed, somehow there was no desire to translate English-language articles recently, and in smashingmagazine they both write something and think for 10 minutes what it could mean. Therefore, today I will try to briefly describe all the remaining trends in web design in 2009. Consider today the last 15 copies:
16. “Social” design elements
In the blogosphere, you will probably not find a single blog that would not contain various “social” icons or services. Each author is pleased with the attention to his blog, as well as new visitors, so they pay a lot of attention to similar elements. Most often, these elements are located after the posts, some look quite original:
17. Talking Navigation
This direction seems to remain popular this year. Although, I confess, there is practically no such thing in Runet, but the idea, I think, is good. So, designers try not only to display a list of sections of the site, but also to partially explain to visitors what is behind this or that item, to give a kind of small hint. Most often this is found in the horizontal menu:
Sometimes in this navigation you can find large icons, blocks have the same height and width, and also use special effects when hovering:
18. Dynamic tabs
One of the most popular trends not only blogs, but also sites. It allows you to save a lot of space on the site – the content of the page is initially loaded entirely, but it is divided into tabs (bookmarks), of which only one selected item is displayed constantly.
The rest of the trends in the article are reviewed very briefly.
19. Large search blocks
20. Visual categories (most likely, there are icons for different categories)
21. Pictures for authors (avatars, apparently)
22. Icons and visual cues
23. Tag cloud
24. Illustrations in blog posts
26. Handwritten texts
By the way, I have 2 good selections in my blog:
Beautiful handwritten fonts
Handwritten Russian fonts
27. Retro and vintage style
See also vintage brushes for photoshop.
28. Organic Textures, Photographic Backgrounds
30. Price tags
These are the trendy design techniques this year. I hope you enjoyed the selection. The remaining three articles can be found, most likely, just below in the block “similar in topic posts.”
P.S. Have you seen unusual techno tattoos?
I also advise you to read the article about the article about mobile marketing.
