New York-based website design expert says that the New Year is the perfect time to clean up an existing website and ensure that it meets the latest needs of all users.
Online PR News – 26-November-2013 – New York, NY – According to Peter Crisafi, Vice President of dzine it, Inc. (www.dzineit.net), a leading Manhattan website design and software development firm with clients throughout the United States and around the world, the New Year is the perfect time to think about your business’s web properties and reassess your current website design.
“Each year, those of us in the website design industry sit back and reflect on the latest trends in website design,” says Crisafi, “and each year we try and offer advice on these trends. This way, business owners looking to create a new website, or redesign an existing one, can ensure that their company will be on the cutting edge.”
Crisafi says that are three trends that are crucial to watch if your website is scheduled for a redesign in 2014.
1. Responsive Design (Adaptive Design): With the rise in popularity of mobile technology, Internet users are increasingly gathering online information through the use of mobile devices and tablets, all with varying screen sizes.
“A great website will achieve its desired goal, regardless of screen size,” Crisafi explains. “It is important to ensure that you are designing with mobile users in mind right from the start.”
2. Simplistic Designs: Users seem to be gravitating toward more minimalistic website designs, opting instead for great content with a direct message. Crisafi says that the best way to create a simplistic design is to use a lot of white space and concentrate on your website’s message and desired goals.
3. Use Big, Hi-Res Photos: Having great content doesn’t always mean having lots of text on your website.
“Many website designers are looking toward using blocks of content – like you see on Pinterest,” Crisafi explains, “and people love photos. Be sure to use captivating, high-resolution photos to grab a user’s attention.”
Crisafi reiterated the importance of regularly assessing a company’s website design and adjusting to the trending needs of a growing user base.
“Only time will tell what will become the next hot website design,” he concluded, “but one thing is for sure, a responsive website with quality photos and a focus on content is timeless.”
