Trends in Web Design

In design or any form of art, there are various trends in which they go through. These can be thought of as ‘Phases’ and these ‘phases’ change as popular culture changes and how people see or view art. Today we will be discussing the various trends used in web design and layouts, and how some websites can benefit from incorporating these trends into their websites.

Responsive Design:


Square Based Design:


Current Trends

Background Images Take Place:



Minimal Designs:


Flat Design:

This is a company/restaurant I am doing for a rebranding in my production class, and I really think it would benefit from the ‘background take place,’ as it would display food and a attract a lot more customers!
