2014 web trends

The world of business has been steadily growing over the years, transitioning from a brick and mortar based system to a one that is mainly an electronic endeavour. Truth of the matter is that your website is now basically the first impression that most people will get as it pertains to your company.

A well designed and aesthetically pleasing website will keep your audience engaged and your prospects around long enough to form their own opinions. Hence, web designers are incorporating new and old methods to give clients an advantage over the competition. In this article we will look at the 2 web design trends that will continue to rise in popularity throughout this year.

1.       Pantone Colour Matching System

  • This is a major issue envisioned especially when dealing with logos and other branding mechanisms that are required to appear consistent across all platforms. So how do you address this issue?
  • Pantone Matching system (PMS) developed by the company Pantone helps web designers with a system that assigns a number to nearly every conceivable colour the human eye can imagine. Meaning, a graphic/web designer can use a PMS fanbook (something similar to what you see in paint shops) containing all colours and match the client’s exact colour choices.

2.       Parallax Scrolling Sites

  • New technologies such as HTML5 and CSS3 are allowing web designers to utilize this technique to create an environment that engages the customers and other visitors to your websites.

In the world of digital graphics, we can achieve parallax scrolling in a variety of ways. They are:


In general, developers have to consider various elements to create the parallax scrolling effect with integrity and versatility. Incorporating the right syntax of the latest versions of HTML and CSS is the key to develop a technique that works best.
