As increasing numbers of website visitors are accessing the internet using mobile phones and tablets, any good website design needs to be mindful of how this affects the features of that design. In addition to creating a mobile responsive website, which is presented differently depending on whether it is accessed from a PC, tablet or phone, other design trends are affected by the technology.
Simple and minimalistic designs are increasing in popularity, as these are easier to navigate on a smaller screen and enable the visitor to quickly find the information they are looking for. The days of flash animations and complex functionality on every website has passed, as these take a longer time to load. If people have to wait they often click onto another site, before your page has even been seen. Loading time is also a factor rated by the search engines, so it has an impact on your website’s position in the listings.
There is also a trend towards larger font sizes, as they are easier to read on a mobile device, without the need for zooming in. A slightly larger and clear font ties in well with an uncluttered and well laid out design. A minimalistic design and larger font means that it is even more vital that you are presenting high quality content. The words (known as copy), the images and video content need to be of a professional standard.
