3 Web Design Trends for 2016 you should look out for

Just like any other design trends you can think about, web design trends will come and go. Some trends (particularly design trends) may stay around for decades, but when it comes to web design, the industry moves and changes quickly. One of the major factors responsible for this is technology- an improvement on already existing rends. Below are 3 top web designs that are sure to dominate industry this 2016.

  • Material Design

The material design was launched in June 2014 by Google, but the usage has been very slow. Material design uses dynamic shadows effect, and special movement and depth concept to create more realistic designs for the users. It reminds users of ink and paper elements, and with the rate at which web designers have come to understand this design, it will be in full use this season. This is an example of a site with lovely web designs www.awwwards.com/

  • Sketches and illustrations

In the past, sketches and illustrations were only associated with enticing kids, but today, it has been discovered that it brings some whimsy fun elements to a web design. Illustrations style has also grown and is now well known to web designers and comes in icons and other smaller user elements. The special thing about sketches and illustrations is that it makes the user feel everything handrawn, and writing is personal, – creating a special connection between every user. So in 2016, it will be something to look out for. A site like http://www.siteinspire.com/

  • Hamburgers Iconography

The hamburgers icon is so old yet has been used and loved by users over a long period of time. Web designers have now deviced means of creating more easy-to-use icons and fun UI kits that can easily be used and quiet affordable. Others are even experimenting and trying to get an oversized icon, and so making use of it in 2016 is something that will surely happen. www.grayboxpdx.com

Whether or not a trend should be adopted is to depend, in its entirety on what the users love and what is ideal for your business, rather than just because there are you see other sites using it, and so you feel it is cool.
