Lakeland web designLakeland web design experts believe that following trends is crucial to their success and to the projects they do. It is mandatory for designers to update themselves and upgrade their skill sets regularly. They do not want to seem old and outdated because this could potentially affect their careers. Even their clients are wary against people who are not updated with the latest fad in web design.


This 2017, we have seen new trends in web designing that may or may not make it to next year. Remember, there is simply too much going on around us these days that it’s hard to keep up with what’s new and what’s old in web designing. No one is really sure if such trends will continue in the coming years.


These are the trends that we have seen this year and would maybe even make its cut next year (who knows?):


Open composition


Web design, until this year, is composed of closed, symmetric, and static designs. Last year, many designers strayed away from these principles and instead made the composition of each website more fluid and open. Open composition means the design elements are fleeing off-screen (somewhere). This principle of distribution of elements gives the impression that the elements will continue on somewhere else, even beyond your monitor screens.




Gone are the days when all websites are symmetrical, when the layout is balanced, when the left and right margins of the page are all aligned. For quite some time, symmetry as an element has dominated the industry. But since 2017, many designers are starting to create websites that give off that asymmetrical look.




Have you noticed how freer the designs are these days? There is a less rigid approach to designing websites these days, no matter what the industry the website is representing. It is only a matter of time before website designs get a little bit more adventurous. People were bound to get bored with the same old layout and ordinariness.


Decorative details


There is a departure from the minimalistic, cleaner, and raw approach that has dominated website designing for many years. These days, designers are freer and more able to use decorative details on the websites they are designing. That is why there is also a change on font faces. Gone are the days of sans serifs. Instead, we are now being greeted by geometric and sometimes, monospaced, typefaces.
