There are 3 hot web trends that every web designer and company needs to check out!

1-One Page Web Design.

The one-page web design is a new style of design. Unlike the multi-page, the one-page design goes from top to bottom. The one-page web design navigates within its page instead of navigating to separate lines. This design has changed the way that the average user looks at a website. A vertical type of perspective is presented in the one-page design.

What difficulties does the one page design propose?
The one-page design presents some SEO flaws. Since the one-page design includes the home, about, services and contact page all in 1 page, this prevents the web designer from tagging each of these pages with their own individual meta tags since they are all on 1 page. This is one of the greatest SEO flaws of the one-page web design. With the most important site pages included all on 1 page of the design, this also prevents the website owner from sharing any of these pages separately on social accounts. To conclude, the main difficulty with the 1-page design is this small SEO flaw discussed above.

What is the main advantage of the one-page web design?
The one-page design is the most mobile friendly web design available. If a designer could sketch out what the perfect mobile design would be, it would be a vertical design like the 1-page design. This design also presents a great company showcase since everything is included all in one page.

2-Video Backgrounds.

Video backgrounds are the latest trend in web design. Videos present a ‘live’ kind of energy on the web page. A regular video is proven to draw a web visitor to stay longer on the page out of pure curiosity.

What is the main disadvantage of the video background?
Video backgrounds may look great for a first time visitor but if a visitor returns many times on a website, the same video may be too familiar and not as interesting as it was the first time.

What is the main benefit of having a video background?
When a web visitor searches google and lands on the page, the first thing that they look for is relevancy. They search the web to find some kind of answer and a website is suppose to give a clear message. A video message can present a clear message to a web visitor in seconds.

3-Vibrant Colours.
