Top 5 Web Design Trends in 2013

     With the counting of the last hours of the passing 2012, the anticipation of new beginnings in 2013 ignites our passion, our inspiration and our new ideas. This is particularly true for those who are working in the creative, web design area. Even though we cannot predict the future, the last year gave us some good hints about the changes, the innovations and the trends in the web design area during 2013. Some things we just cannot deny - like the growing influence of the high technologies on the web design techniques and approaches. So, the big question here is "will the web design become more flexible to meet the expectations of the mobile world and the modern users"? We are about to see the answer of this question within the next few months.

1. Responsive design

Starting from the middle of the last year, the fluid design conquers even more territories in the world of web design. This is not really a prediction, but more of an obvious conclusion that comes from the trends and the changes that were happening in 2012. The responsive web design naturally becomes more and more popular choice of the web designers who want to create beautiful and functional websites with an excellent performance on the modern devices. The only way to be on the top of the world is to keep up with the changes. So, this is the most obvious and the most important web design trend in 2013.

2. Internet browsing through apps

One of the fastest changing parts of the digital world is the way that people can browse through the Internet today. The possibilities seem endless - surfing through smart phones, tablets and the good old desktops and laptops. However, the most convenient way of web browsing seems to be through apps. The apps assure easy and direct access to the wanted websites and all social networks. The perfect size of the icons used for the apps make them very suitable for browsing through the internet from small devices, such as smart phones, iPads, iPods, etc.

3. Websites with the parallax scrolling

This is perhaps the hottest trend that 2013 will follow for the most attractive and interactive sites we have seen. It makes the navigation through the sites smooth and effective, which benefits both, the users and the web developers. All the trends for 2013 show that it will be the year of the user friendly web design projects, therefore the vertical scrolling slowly will push away the horizontal scrolling. The secret of the parallax scrolling is the way the graphics are disposed and the different speeds they are scrolled with. Every object and element of the interactive sites has three-dimensional appearances. That seems like a good trend, right?

4. The end of Flash

Flash has served us well during the last decade, however even the best things come to end and it is time to put the lights on different techniques and approaches. The HTML5 and CSS3 are the one "to blame" for the leaving of the flash. What is the new here? - the innovative scriptable elements of the HTML5 that create dynamic layouts. They are really powerful and make your website run flawlessly and fast.

5.Social Medias

The power of Social Medias will continue to grow. The last years clearly showed that the Social Medias are here to stay. However, the surprise comes from the rapid speed that this growing is happening. With that said, the logic follows to deeper integration of the Social Medias in the website with sharing badges and development of the viral marketing.
