Just as with everything, the web has it’s trends that come and go too. 2013 carries with it some web design trends from 2012 and makes some new ones of it’s own. Enfuzed (that’s us) created Infographic showcasing web design trends for 2013. Even though the year is half over, it’s also only half begun. Webdesign trends of 2013 include responsive, metro or “flat”, minimalism, typography, parallax, infinite scrolling, content first, fixed header, single page websites, and large image backgrounds.
Obviously there are many more, but for the sake of load times on this Infographic we cut some of them out. The ones we cut out include retina ready websites and svg images. I decided to cut svg images out because it has not yet caught on completely yet. Retina is slowly rising as well, some people don’t fully understand it yet and I think that is why it hasn’t been adapted by many yet. Be sure to check out our other infographic: Top 10 Reasons People Leave Your Website.
Anyways let’s get to the Infographic, here are some of the latest web design trends. If you see any errors in this please feel free to comment them below. (click image for larger version)
