The Future of Web Design
The World Wide Web has come a long way since Berners-Lee’s creation was introduced to the public in 1991. For more than two decades, the fast-paced, fast-changing evolution of the web also involved advancements in web design. Inarguably, web design is a crucial part of a website. There have been talks of the death of web design, but this is simply not true. In fact, it’s not even argumentative. Minutes and hours and days of our lives are dependent on the Internet and technology in general and not just purely in personal terms, but also professionally, industrially, and globally.
What’s rapidly becoming obsolete is the archaic form of web that we’ve known (at least those who are along in their mid-20s). It now adapts to the needs and demands of those who consume it: the Internet users – in ways that makes it accessible and fitted to the present design protocols and standards. Our team of web designers and web developers here at MicroCreatives work hand-in-hand to ensure that the websites that you commissioned to us will not only work efficiently and properly in all viewports, but will also be designed that appeals best to target customers.
Here are a couple of thoughts on the evolving process of web, particularly web design – its development and usability.
The Advancing Landscape of Web
It is not surprising that as time goes by, web designers keep up with the latest trends in order to incorporate them to their work, making it better, user-friendly, and interactive. It’s almost criminal now to see badly designed websites, with the emergence of a host of frameworks online that offer scalable network applications, such as TypeKit and Node.js. But the bottomline has always been to make the website accessible and compatible across all platforms. Because if this is not achieve, why else would you bother building a website at all? MicroCreatives’ web developers and designers are skilled in working various software and technologies that best fit your business and website’s needs.
The phrase is pretty much explanatory. Since accessibility is not limited in desktops and laptops alone, there are other viewports that should be included, to make your website enabled across devices, browsers, etc.
But although enabling your website to work on mobile devices shouldn’t mean that less effort should be put to native design. Even with the fast-evolving technological innovations happening here and there, it is a fact that web design in its native form has a purpose that far transcends that of mobile devices.
Demand for Technological Developments
Whether or not you are building a website from scratch, there are widely used frameworks such as WordPress that also keep up with the advancements. In general, people are consistently finding ways to best do them, but in a manner that makes it less complicated for users to familiarize themselves with the technology.
The Prevalence of WebApps
For non-developers, the genesis of the WebApps has helped a great deal when it comes to owning interactive sites that serve a specific purpose. These online applications come with editing function than can be accessed anytime, anywhere as long as you have an active account in the application and you are online. It’s great for smaller tasks, and while it has a framework that is of smaller scale and is different compared to traditional software, it does well for itself.
In conclusion, web design is definitely not dead, but is, in fact, thriving in various ways and scale. The traditional means are not completely obsolete, for they serve as a guide on how things work at its very core, only in better and advanced forms. Our team knows this and is ready to work with you now to build and design your website exactly how you want it.
