Top Web Design Trends in 2016

Web design trends change rapidly. They come and go. Websites today follow very different trends than they did just a year ago. And sometimes, keep in mind that "trend" doesn't necessarily mean "new". Here I list some outstanding trends in 2016:

1. Responsive design
Nowadays, responsive web is one of the new standards of web development. Responsive web design has become incredible popular in recent years thanks to the rise of mobile internet usage. This kind of design make your websites display in different screens from PC desktops, tablets to smartphones.

2. Card layouts
Actually, cards are the future of the web layouts. Cards do not contain much information, this feature make it easy to read and interact. Cards can come in all manner of shapes, color and forms, but generally they will all include an image or icon, plus basic information, such as a title, user name, or occasionally text.

3. Animation
Animation is not just for cartoons anymore. Animation is trendy, fun and user friendly. There are 5 most popular animation techniques: hover animation, galleries and slideshows, loading animation, motion animation, scrolling.

4. Background image

Full screen backgrounds have become more and more popular in the last couple of years and I think it will remain so for at least a few more. The trend of background image may be summarized as attractive homepage screen. Most of this images are photographs which directly relate to the content.

5. Flat design

Flat design is a design basis for presenting UI and graphical elements. This trend scales well and is easy to  read on mobile divices. It's practical and work well. Flat design isn't going away anytime soon. 

6. Interactive web pages

The interactive web is to make websites more appealing and a great way to do that is to have account registration options. With the right coding, you can have users sign up with their Google or Facebook accounts in seconds, and that will help you build your customer base significantly.
