Merely commenting any website homepage as ‘#old’ is not going to solve any problem with design. The days of simple and closed compositions are over. The more the design would be open-style or chaotic more would be the chances for broken or cut out images. There are several facets around which web designing revolves that can be explained one by one.
The first one is Open Composition. The former grid style needs to be replaced with the upcoming technologies like Canvas and WebGL. Open compositions with loose elements fleeing away off-screen have become popular over many websites.
The erstwhile symmetrical layout is not the choice of the design experts who love contemporary styling. They wobbled the layout styling to asymmetry. They are fond of imperfect. Great variation within compositions ranging from dynamic to complex or organic shapes also works. Either they are zig-zag or difficult in structure.
As far as the background is concerned the patterns used are made up of small dashes, stripes, or dots. To test the look of the background it needs to be placed over grid pattern. The parallax principle of moving the elements over the grid would be adopted.
Grid pattern feature is so old that it might have been under-utilized without the use of the characteristic movements, but making the elemental movements logical, rationalizing the established decisions and simultaneously creates rhythm as well as justifies violation.
As per the decorative aspect of the theme ‘Flying’ geometric figures is not a very good idea. They are hackneyed. If anything loud such as linear or rickety icons are included they seem aloof of the content being written. To avoid any errors underscores and separators also change.
One fine day, animation has suddenly emerged with boom adding a random effect between different content blocks. It does not hamper the narratives that disturb the appearance of each element along with time schedule. An add-on of same to the theme at times can be very tempting as it highlights the content as a fresh and original creation.
Any web design solutions company is highly likely to acquire rich typography that makes bold use of various typefaces. Over the years the designers have evolved themselves with contrasting typefaces. These are serif typefaces with the non-serif ones. With time typography has started using advanced features where texts are animated, broken down into individual letters and variety of effects, images, and videos are placed on them.
The most favored ones are the Geometric typefaces with more aggressive and expressive character of a website. It uses thicker weight. The serif typefaces are ideal for large headlines.
