More and more people browsing the internet on the mobile devices so if your website design is not responsive, hire someone to do it before your competitors steal your customers.
Layouts with Parallax Scrolling (Vertical or horizontal): Parallax scrolling layouts were very popular last year and still helping business’s to illustrate the presentation of the business structures. These layouts are very interesting so people love to click to browse more and that’s what we want. If a customer is browsing your full website, it means that you have more possibilities to get more business. Parallax scrolling also adapt the concept of the 3d kind of websites.
Flat Layouts concept: Flat layouts are more tend to be popular in 2014 as the whole concept is avoiding the use of blocks, wide borders and corners shades etc. Flat designs are going to be much lighter that going to help the page loading speed much faster than before and of course search engine loves it. The whole idea is to simplify the use of, browsing throughout the internet. People don’t have to wait for several minutes for loading scripts like flash or unwanted Java scripts. Flat layouts are following the concept of IOS7 and windows 8. Block of color is going to much easier to browse on the different size of devices. It’s going to be the multi device worlds for the new generation.
Single Page Websites: Single page websites are getting very popular because most of people find the browsing difficult if a website has too many pages. Single page website is one of the conjunction of the parallax scrolling layouts, but few visitors feel it easier to action compare to parallax scrolling fast actions. Very popular for the latest blogs, story tellers and news, people just love to read without changing the tabs and it encourages the users to share the information and that’s the whole idea behind making it popular.
