Product Description

Product Description

In art, its history is clearly defined into movements titled after the prominent style of that time. Web design is slightly different. The prominent styles defining moments in time for web design are better defined as trends. The dominant trends of the moment define the popular design practices and styles of the moment, while also showcasing what can be done for the web at the time.

As all know, the internet is constantly evolving form of technology. It is the job of web designers and developers to be able to maximize their work, within the limitations of the web. So each different web design trend movement, if you will, was heavily influenced by what could be done at the time.

After reading this thus far, an understandable question might be popping up in your head. How is knowing any of this going to benefit me? Well, there is an easy answer to that.

To be able to foresee the possible future, one must first have a grasp for the present. To have a grasp of the present, an understanding of the past is required.

Web Design Trends(2010, 2011, 2012) is a brief look at the web design trend movements of the two previous years, and our current one. The three years covered here will be looked at in four different sections. These sections being: code and technology, layout and usability, graphics and typography, and social and mobile media.

Table Of Contents


Introduction 1 page
The opening section takes a look at how trends in web design come about. By taking a look at the reasons of why and how they occur first, a better appreciation for the history lesson of trends in years will be achieved later on.

Areas Covered 1 page
In this section, you'll get a brief look into the four divided sections. Each section represents an important aspect of web design that is most influenced by the passing trends of the times.

Code and Technology 5 pages
As the name suggests, it concerns the advancement of HTML, CSS and the capabilities of physical technology, without which the trends would evolve at a much slower pace.

Layout and Usability 4 pages
Since the web is becoming an increasingly large part of our everyday lives, additional measures have to be taken in order to make our visits as easy, quick and painless as possible. In this section, we will be taking a look at the aspect of web design responsible for this.

Graphics and Typography 4 pages
Just like the artistic movements change in time, so do the aesthetics on the web. Typography has been included here because it has already become more than just text and it can function as a functional and decorative element.

Social and Mobile Media 5 pages
It’s no mystery that the web has gone mobile and people like to share things on their device of choice. For this reason, we need to adjust our way of thinking and create more versatile designs for the various available screens.

Lots of correct and accurate statements about modern web design. However, not many clues as to how to achieve these!

This is a great book for anyone who wants to catch up with the latest web design trends.

I'm not a web design nor a developer, but as someone interested in online marketing, I found this book to be very useful: web design plays a big role in conversions and branding, therefore it's always good to stay up to date with the latest trends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where we've been, where we're going - a book to help web designers stay on top of current web design trends 29 May 2012
By Hannah West - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It's possible to be so busy that you don't have much time to stay up to speed with the latest trends, and therefore it can be hard to see what's around the bend. This recent history of web design trends will help you understand the ground we've covered over the last couple of years in the areas of code and technology, layout and usability, graphics and typography, and social and mobile media so you can extrapolate the future and begin designing for it. Particularly helpful in combination with these books: Learn HTML5 Website Basic Features And Elements In 1 Day (Quick Guides For Web Designers in 1 hour!) Responsive Web Site Design, Quick Guide How To Get Your Site Ready For Every Device And Browser (Quick Guides For Web Designers in 1 hour!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great short read for web developers 1 Jun 2012
By Caleb M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading the book "Web Design Trends". There is a good bit of helpful info packed into this little book that takes around 1 hour to read. A lot of these topics like Responsive Design, Minimalism, HTML5 and Speed optimization I have been studying this last year. The book was a good overview of why I'm learning these things.

Nothing earth shattering with new ideas and content, but a quick and easy read that almost serves as a checklist to confirm good work. Great value.

Not enough content, even for a quick guide. Not really worth my time and money. could be useful for someone complete novice on the subject.
