In web design, it is always important to look towards future trends to stay a head above the rest. If you want to take your web design to the next level, understanding that the future is now is key. While many popular design trends are making waves now, chances are that they’ll be even bigger moving forward. So what are some of the biggest design trends to look out for in 2018 and how can you incorporate them into your website?

5 Hot Web Design Trends That Will Get Even Hotter in 2018

1. Card Design

Most people believe that good websites aren’t made out of cards but one of the freshest ways to change up the layout of a website is with the use of cards. Cards can instantly make your website look and feel similar to popular social media websites like Pinterest. While it may seem strange at first, card design is a great way to keep visitors engaged and increase conversion.

2. Higher Quality Images

Images are one of the best ways to tell your story and help visitors relate to your brand. While everyone wants to find that fresh new look for their website, investing in high-quality images is a great place to start. Right now, images that have a more candid and homemade feel are making waves online but the most important quality about these more relaxed images is the fact that they are still very well-crafted. Avoiding less obvious stock photos is something that you should be doing right now and continue to seek out in 2018.

3. The Hamburger Menu

The era of the hamburger menu is officially here and is likely to continue to grow in the next few years. This simple, 3 line icon at the top of most apps and mobile sites lets visitors know that they simply need to “click here to see our menu.” Once seen as a futuristic insignia, the hamburger menu now allows your website to look more streamlined and allows for easy access to additional landing pages.

4. Inbound Video

Video marketing has been a powerful tool for the last decade or so and it is showing no signs of slowing down. Why tell your potential customers what you’re about when you can show them? Now, with the help of new services, you can easily make your own videos and explore a full set of analytics that will help you to better communicate with and engage your target audience.

5. Fullscreen Forms

Want to find a better way to draw in new clients and grab their information? Want to make sure that your visitors don’t get too distracted by your copy or ads that are taking up part of the screen? With big and bold fullscreen forms, your visitors are encouraged to focus on the task at hand without getting bored or sidetracked with other information.
