Webdesign: Five trends in 2017

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.

Day Flash. Hello Animate CC!

It is so far. Flash Professional CC Gets a new name: Adobe Animate CC. Of course, not only changes the name, but also new features are added. Animate CC is supposed to be the new standard tool for anyone who wants to create webanimations. SWF and AIR formats are still supported, as well as HTML5. By collaborating with Google and Facebook, Adobe wants to keep the existing Flash content still available. Adobe says Flash Professional CC all the way from the beginning to have rebuilt to make this possible. Why do they change names and what are the new possibilities you can use later? Read on here and find out all you need to know about Adobe Animate CC.

Why do they change the name?

Flash has created a turbulent past and a bad identity. When Apple stopped supporting Flash on the iPhone and IPad, it seemed to be all end story. However, many marketers still continued to use them. Now, among others, advertentieblockers have become so popular, this path does not seem profitable for them either. And because of several problems with the program and different versions, Adobe is clever to throw the helm with a completely new name. What changes?

Possibilities

Because HTML5 is primarily used, Adobe strongly emphasizes this by a new HTML5 video player that replaces the original Flash variant. What are the possibilities you can make more use of?

Draw

  • Better brushes that make it easy to create tight vector lines and access live previews.
  • Adjacent frames can now have different alpha and color values, making it easy to create intricate animations.
  • With Vector art brushes, you can adjust the path of a line after it is drawn and scale to any size without losing quality. It is also possible to create or import brushes yourself.
  • It becomes easier to manage audio loops directly on the timeline and without code.
  • Change colors more quickly because they can be adjusted automatically in the rest of the project.
  • You can rotate the canvas 360 degrees to really put every point well on the I.

Output

  • It is now possible to export videos for the latest Ultra HD and HI-HPI displays.
  • Want to continue working in Adobe Muse, DPS, InDesign, or Dreamweaver? No problem, simply export your project as a. OAM file.
  • HTML5 Canvas, Flash (SWF), WebGL, Air, and other platforms like SVG are simply supported by Adobe Animate CC.
  • Do you have any old content? Revive them by optimizing them for each resolution.

Integration

  • Creative Cloud Libraries give you easy access to all your images, colors, brushes, and vector artwork.
  • In Adobe Stock Chalk you have instant access to millions of illustrations with which you can even animate.
