Web Design is Evolving

Web design is evolving, in fact it has already evolved with so many design trends to see. Designers are coming with different innovative ideas which are changing “How Web Looks?”. While some are coming with new ideas, many are just adopting the designs trends. For example, the flat UI design with solid colors which was presented first by Microsoft in Windows 8 has been adopted by almost the whole web, even by Apple in its iOS 7.

A very little of designers now choose gradients, textures, large shadows, colorful images and icons, image buttons in their web design. The two benefits of flat design which has made it so popular in just few months are

  • It is clean, user friendly, professional, sophisticated and still creative.
  • It adapts to the all size screens easily because of the variable size nature of elements.

Why I said that it adapts to the all screen sizes because the solid color is used in background of the design elements using CSS which is scalable without any issue.
