Dreamweaver is a very advanced package that allows you to create and publish websites. Even if you do not have so much experience in this area, this package is highly recommended. It might look a bit complicated in the beginning, but that is very much the same when you get going.
We offer a training for each version.
If you do not have the budget to take a training with us, we have a free course that helps you to end your way.
If you want to follow a course with several people, it might be interresting to buy the red strip card .
Of course you can also get a tailor-made course, incompany with a group, or private.
What brings 2017 when it comes to webdesign? We throw a small glance forward and go into the trends and expectations for the new year.
1. Websites become more mobile friendly
Websites become more mobile. The designs are growing along with that trend. In 2017, websites become even more mobile friendly (really good responsive and suitable for mobile phones). In addition, in 2017 you will see that the number of websites designed in principle for mobile phones (and thus so-called ' mobile first ') is going to increase. Not only the design will be made more and more for a small screen: the content will be cut considerably. (And that obviously has consequences for the final design.) Many web designers will look for the balance: ' Mobile first ' is sometimes quite a challenge in the desktop version.
2. Atomic design comes back all the way
Atomic design is a way of design where you always use things again. (Atoms form molecules and molecules in turn form substances.) If we now look at a website, we all see small elements separately: Search buttons, icons, text fields... These loose elements together form one other element, namely a search field. The search box together with the menu will be the header. And so you go on. New It is not, atomic design. But in 2017, many web designers will look at designs again. The advantage is that you reuse basic elements in different sequences, which will benefit the house style and the overall look and feel of the design. In addition, it is nice to design this way: the small chunks offer guidance. And they are easy to use by, for example, a DTP or communication specialist.
3. Burger Menus win Terrain
Last year, the number of hamburger menus on desktop websites was steadily increasing. The fullscreen navigation associated with it scares some off. (You click on an icon and all of a sudden your entire screen is filled with links...) But this way of navigating also has advantages: the user chooses very consciously to start his navigation route.
4. It may turn 3D
The flat design is becoming less than next year. Thanks to the popularity of material design, depth, round corners and embellishments are back. How exuberant the design will be, we await. We are curious!
5. More user friendly Designs
Many companies do not take any risks when it comes to user paths: they want something that has been proven to navigate nicely and to the wishes and questions of the website visitor. Fortunately, there are a large number of extensively tested UX-designs and frameworks that are more and more the basis of different designs. (Incidentally, these frameworks are also at the root of many popular Wordpress themes.) Of course customization is always best, yet we believe that the popularity of the ' proven ' frameworks contributes a bit to making the World Wide Web more user-friendly.
