As with many aspects of the internet and all it involves, web design is a professional skill and an industry constantly evolving. As new technologies become available regarding how internet users access and consume content online and as the visual elements of websites advance, what looked to be a state-of-the-art website a mere 6 months ago, may already begin to look aged.
You can still find websites where the copyright symbol has a year from the noughties next to it, or if you search on the site ‘Wayback Machine’, you will see websites that are the equivalent of recently discovered artifacts and antiques and appear as though they belong in a museum, rather than online.
This all points to the fact that web design never stands still and that every year there are new concepts, web design developments, and technologies that need to be used to create a modern website. You will find many of these new web design techniques trending, whereby more web designers include them in the new websites they are creating and for 2023, here are seven of those current web design trends.
Everywhere you look these days, you will find that inclusivity is becoming an increasingly common term used within multiple industries, and rightly so. Although it can apply broadly, it is most associated with creating products and services that can be accessed, used, and enjoyed by everyone, including those with disabilities.
How inclusivity is achieved via web design will include extra-large fonts for those who might have issues with their sight, and for those with hearing is impaired, a web designer will seek to use videos with captions. These and the other ways of making websites more accessible are positive both for the users and the business as it is an opportunity to have a wider audience experience their website.
