Continuing from where it was left, here is part 2 of the web design trends for the year 2017:
Hover animations are all the rage these days and why not? They do end up saving a lot of screen space and increases user engagement. You may be familiar with those small questions marks on some pages, when you hover your mouse on the question mark, an answer explaining the element in question pops up. It vanishes the moment you move your mouse away. There are many different ways that hover animations can be used nowadays. Words that are underlined, images that expand into full-fledged videos and simple question marks are just some examples of how hover animations can be used.
Another design that is picking up pace is the single page long scroll format where all the information that you need is neatly placed in a grid format on a single page. The main advantage of this format is that it allows the designer to tell a story where the user is greeted with different elements and parts of the story as he scrolls down.
Users are able to control the pace of the scroll and the entire layout is mobile and tablet friendly which are increasingly being used to access the web.
The human brain and eyes in particular are trained naturally to be drawn to any kind of movement. These are natural instincts. So when you use motion animations on the website, the users’ attention is automatically drawn to the animation in motion. This is a great way to capture attention and deliver the most important message you want to convey. This also increases user engagement and thereby conversion.
So these are some of the web design trends for the year 2017 that you must keep in mind.
