From the Paleolithic cave drawings and studies on socialization, humans have come a long way developing efficient technological and design tools to communicate effectively. Web design stands as a medium to connect your brand with people all over the world. Thus, as a designer and entrepreneur you should cherish this discovery — web design advancements plus trends.
This said, web design nowadays is not only about how eye-catching a website is. Designers need to focus on web development as well, i.e. whether they need to create a mobile design or a responsive design. Points to note:
- As of 2015, 80% of the users of internet have a smartphone
- Most popular devices are laptops, smartphones, and tablets
- 85% people check your website before doing business with you
- 46% users are less likely to buy things from you if your design is bad
Hence, a website should be good-looking and functional at the same time. For this, you can either use pre-available website templates provided by agencies, or you can make a website on your own using design, HTML and CSS software.
Remember that internet users these days are not patient —they make decisions within seconds. Users want results instantly, and this is why search engines like Google work highly efficiently. For this, your website design and development should adhere to certain tactics that will rank you above others.
Make sure that users visit your website and stick to it. How will this happen? With an awesome, trendy and workable design.
