Web Design? Out! Experience Design? In! All in!!
Consumed => “7 Web Design Trends to Look Out for in 2014” by John Siebert on Just Creative.
=> My value add (i.e., left a comment)…
=> From what I read, more total time is spent on small screen than large – and the gap is getting wider every day. “Big & bold” and some of the others don’t really a apply then, yes?
So yeah… #5 – Less is More and #6 – Flat Design. Perhaps both of those should be bumped up the list?
=> I’d also like to add one to the list (based on the trend towards small screen):
That is, if you presume mobile / touch first, then the large screen should related to that – not the other way around. And certainly not some totally new / different experience. User expectations are much more mature now. If you’re still “designing websites” in 2014 – as opposed to crafting experiences driven by user expectations – then you’re doing it all wrong.
