Web design is constantly evolving. With the advancements in technology, web design is getting incredibly creative and interactive. Many elements go into designing and crafting a website. It’s a balance of being unique and grabbing the viewers’ attention while still keeping functionality and clutter-free. We’ve seen web platforms like WordPress and Squarespace make easy-to-use templates to update and present your brand in a way that is cost-effective, time-effective, and can often be maintained in house.
Our priority is to understand your needs and how agile you are in creating, building, and maintaining a functional yet well-designed website.

No matter what, we understand you are the expert of your brand, and most importantly, your consumers, so here are a few website trends to add some tools to your web toolbox:
Oversized Web Elements
Using oversized elements, such as text, images, or videos, are a great way to direct attention while not overwhelming the user with too many words and copy. It communicates your message clearly and instantaneously. Keeping elements large also look great across all screen sizes.
Creating high-contrast using bold colors is a great way to grab your user’s attention immediately. It is important to balance bright colors with neutral whites, grays, and blacks. Use these colors to direct the user’s attention to the essential parts of your content.
We have seen this trend for a while in web design, but it doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. Creating lots of space around the content you want the user to focus on helps keep the audience’s attention where you want it. Just because there is space for more content does not mean you need to fill it with more content.
Motion and Interactivity
Video and animations are not new on the web, but we see a growing use of these elements to help brands express their message. From video headers to scrolling text and small animations when hovering over objects – interactivity and movement are important when trying to keep your audience’s attention.
Scalable Vector Graphics
All modern browsers now provide SVG support. It’s easier than ever to provide fast, scalable vector graphics and animations. SVG can be easily manipulated on the web – making them dynamic graphics that help make your website more user-friendly [LINK: ]. Like most creative work, web design is somewhat of a craft.
