Being a web designer is not an easy job today. Not so much because the learning of it is hard, every job is hard to learn in its own way. But because the market has tons of web designers and most of them do a good job at it. The trick is to make yourself better than the rest or to be at the right time in the right place. But the biggest question most people have is what is the job of a web designer.
Web designers are similar to a graphic designer, and that line gets thinner every year. The biggest difference is that a web designer has to think how the content will function at its best and what can be done to improve every aspect of the content for the end user.
The people who create content are magicians but individuals who have to know how to make something work for people they never met, or even worse for millions of people now that is a miracle in its own way. The trends in this job change depending on the end user but some stick around longer than others. We will list a few that are at the top of their game now:
1) Account registration and push notifications
The most modern feature on almost every respectable site out on the internet. Once the user goes to a particular site, he is prompted to either register or allow push notifications, which can be useful for both the content creators and the user.
The content creators get their pay for doing a good job of attracting new people, which will in return pay for more content in the future. The end users get a chance to become a member and get notifications on things they want, and if they don’t want to be a part of some site all they have to do is just close the box.
2) Long scrolling
The tablets and mobile phones have revolutionized how this feature was accepted. Before all your content was divided into extra pages, but today the fewer pages you have and the longer that one page is, the more people tend to stay and read the whole content on it.
3) Gorgeous animations
The animations have been a part of the internet for a decade. But amazing animations have just recently started taking everything. Before only certain areas of the page had some animations. Today we get animations in everything we click on. The best part about good animations is that they are tailored to the users and how they perceive them.
4) More and brighter color
The styles that dominate today all have one thing in common. The colors of every successful app or web page have in some amount a bright color pallet. It’s either the whole logo or the sides, but the bright colors are making a big impact in how things are designed and accepted today.
