As we head into the new financial year, and many businesses will budgeting for a new website, we are sharing the savvy web design trends for 2017.

Website Design Trends for 2017

Continuous Scroll

There was a time when best practices dictated that all important elements should display above the "fold". However, the ever-growing use of smartphones, to access the internet, has changed the way people interact with web pages. Today, continuous scrolling encourages people to stay longer.

Minimalist Design

The minimalist design trend aims to keep websites uncluttered, focused, and easy to use. Moreover, it makes an effective use of white space to guide visitors to desired actions and outcomes, either buying, subscribing, or sharing. A dramatic design may look impressive, but it can also be frustrating and confusing to users.


These elements have the ability to create a more engaging and interactive user experience. With the advent of GIFV and Giphy videos, animations have evolved significantly over the years, allowing for stunning storytelling visuals. Moreover, animation can provide a response to, or focus the user's attention on, an intended action.
