Are your websites starting to look a little similar?
Every designer hits a creative slump from time to time.
Whether you’re continually working on sites that serve the same function or you’ve simply fallen into a rut, in terms of variation, it’s never too late to get your mojo back.
The wonderful thing about working in web design is that there are new ideas and designs being developed every day – if you’re looking for inspiration, then you’ve come to the right place!
Make It Minimalistic
Although it can be tempting to pack as much fancy ideas and pieces of information in to your website, sometimes the most appealing website can be one that is simple and easy to get to grips with.
Showing off might have its benefits when you’re trying to win over new clients, but it doesn’t necessarily make for a good UX.
Fancy It Up With Parallax Effects
Landing pages have changed irrevocably in the last two years, with designers leaning towards clean cut graphics and smooth animations to entice the user into the site. Make your new site stand out with some truly trippy parallax effects – making each movement of the mouse shift the images in your design.
Blow Up Your Site With HD Video
Thanks to ever increasing levels of fidelity, its becoming more common to see designers implement super-high-def videos as a key component of their design builds. Be bold and cover your header or landing page with an attractively made video that will dazzle the user, before they explore the rest of the site.
Utilise A Truly Multimedia Approach
There truly are no rules when it comes to web design in the 21st century. Don’t be afraid to make use of all the forms of media at your disposal to make your design stand out from the crowd.
Use Tiles To Catch The Eye
2016 was (unofficially) the year of the tile design.
With the rising popularity of music streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music, the wed designers of the world have slowly been slipping in stylistic influences from the UI of those apps – the chief of these being an attractive tile-design.
