A lot has changed from 2011 to 2012. We say goodbye to flash, and hello to HTML 5. Mobile has become very popular, and so has Apple inspired designs. We have come up with 9 qualities that make up the elements of a best web design company in 2012. The 9 topics have become trends over the past year which we have consistently seen by client wants and needs. So lets get to it…
Simplicity has become the key to success. Most companies we consult with either want their web design to be cleaner, or less cluttered. People have become more UI focused, and have realized with some many technical options they need to be able to c. The new sites we have been building have been focusing on the product or service right up front. It’s become very evident companies want their potential customers to know what their site is about within the first 8-10 seconds.
I have always thought font can make or break a website. I am glad this trend has finally caught on! With all of the different font kits available (typekit, Google Fonts, etc) there is no reason to limit your website to the standard fonts.
Consumers want be like Apple. Apple has pioneered the idea of simplicity, and clean design. The Apple logo, and lifestyle has become a brand and trend of easy to use, and reliable. These are traits every new company today wants to gain.
This is a fairly new trend. Clients want their navigation to stay still, and not move.
Infographics are custom graphics which show you are unique. You could make a top 10 list in a infgraphics of why customers should use your products, or service.
Creating a website is easy, creating a unique website that’s rememberable is hard. With so many template sites, and themes which all look alike it’s hard to differentiate yourself. So the trend has turned to clients wanting a custom graphic, or style. So we have been doing a lot of hand drawing this year.
Everyone knows Social media is important. In the past few years’ people would want us to just add a subtle Facebook, or Twitter icons on the bottom of their site. Now everyone wants the icons at the top of the site, or they want a wall, or twitter feed. We are seeing many new customers wanting to show their Yelp icons, and Vimeo is really hot compared to YouTube as it’s a hipper more unique look.
With a sea of websites, Facebook, Twitter, Linkden, etc it’s become even more important to create a strong brand. I am always amazed how someone will start a company, and work 100 hours a week to make sure its succesfull. I am even more amazed when these same people decide spending 1000 on their website is acceptable, especially when most companies today need a website, and brand. Branding is important, Branding gives your site a personality, and wow factor. Its remember able, and recognizable. Its builds trust, and reliability (just look at Apple).
The mobile web is very important. Every site today needs to be ipad, iphone, and android friendly. We are working with a lot of customers who want a stand alone site, and and mobile website. The trend has become that people will find your mobile site to see who you are, and what you do. Then they will go to your main site (when they get home, or to work, or at school) to find out more information. This is why branding is so important.
