The Year of High Expectations – Taking Web Design to the Next Level

 

The last few years have changed the way we look at website design and resources for web design. Our industry has evolved at a fast pace, by first launching trends, then quickly adopting them as standard procedure, and even unifying them in single powerful solutions.

Take multiple device responsiveness, for instance. You remember how big of a deal it was just a couple of years ago. Well, right now, no self-respecting creative would have it any other way. Besides, type kits have become more accessible for WordPress users who need to stick to small budgets. And these marks of progress hardly begin to cover the whole picture.

 

2015 – Innovative and challenging

In terms of website design, large image or video backgrounds continue to be intensely sought-for. We can expect to be met with revolutionary techniques for fast-loading image optimization, and responsive re-sizing. Also, consider the role of coding taking a backseat to streamlined design when it comes to professional website creation. Shortcodes are becoming hugely popular. Frankly, it can be stated that the front office has recently been claimed by designers with themes and platforms that generate clean code and provide loads of shortcodes.

2015 is going to raise the bar even higher, as designers are forever looking for solutions that cover as many loose ends as possible. Hence, WordPress themes that are complete with all of the aforementioned capabilities will receive a lot of attention.
