19 web design trends for 2018

Filed under: web design — Tags: , , — alicepham @ 8:04 am

Discover the web design trends, techniques, and tools that will define website and digital product design in 2018 — and beyond.

It’s easy to get a little snobby about trends in creative disciplines. After all, there’s nothing creative or innovative about keeping tabs on “what’s hot” — unless maybe you’re doing so just to continuously buck the trends.

But the fact is that creativity is a conversation.

A conversation that’s been ongoing since we first learned to recreate elements of our world in ochre and charcoal on cave walls. Since we learned to turn abstract marks carved in clay with sticks into packages full of meaning — i.e., language.

Trends are just the main threads in that sprawling, chaotic, polyphonous conversation. Whether we choose to adopt or resist them, our creative choices exist alongside these trends.

They provide context. Because what’s innovation if not a break from the normative? And what’s the normative but last year’s trends?

So, just like last year, I sat down with Webflow’s crackerjack design team and asked them to stare into their VR crystal balls and see what will define design in 2018.

Here’s what Sergie Magdalin, Ryan Morrison, Linsey Peterson, Nathan Romero, and Darin Dimitroff had to say. (Along with a few of my own thoughts, of course.)

Here is 4 Ways that Magento can satisfy all your e-Commerce needs

Filed under: Internet Marketing,web design — Tags: , , — alicepham @ 8:47 am

Hi There,

Developing an e-commerce business is a complex process for entrepreneurs. The platform you choose for your website is more than just a virtual dashboard to manage your online store. It’s also the visual presentation of your online business and the experience you provide to customers as they shop on your site. In this article, we’ll point out an open-source e-commerce platform that has been benefiting over 250,000 businesses to date and what made it the most popular platform for e-commerce stores.

The popular e-commerce platform we’re talking about here is Magento, first released in March 2008. Magento’s creators were sadly disappointed with existing e-commerce platforms which were way too technical and rigid for marketers. The two editions of Magento Community and Magento Enterprise allow the platform to serve businesses regardless of size and industry. By May 2015, Magento had solidly become the leading e-commerce platform with a total market share of 29.8% (25.3% for their Community Edition and 4.5% for the Enterprise Edition).

Though sharing the same base code with their free Community Edition, the Enterprise Edition sells for around $15,550 per year. This price surely comes with extra features, scalability and direct support from the Magento team. That’s how Burger King, Nestlé, Coca-Cola and many other multinational firms spend their money. But the amazing thing about Magento is that it also offers the Community Edition for free with thousands of extensions, thereby enabling most e-commerce websites to reach their full potential.

In the following commentary, we will explain the four major benefits you will receive with the free Magento Community Edition

ProWeb365: 5 Clues For Finding An Exceptional Web Designer

Filed under: web design — Tags: — alicepham @ 3:55 pm

Today, there are many providers offering all kinds of cheap website designs to attract buyers. Those providers rely on volume to make up for the low quality products and lower prices, and their primary focus is on the number of transactions. This means that if you are not satisfied with the product or the end results of your website design, and you bring it up to them, you might receive any of these responses: “That’s only what we provide,” or “Our design program does not include those things,” or “If you want those features, there is an additional fee.” You get the point. In short, these providers are indirectly saying: “You get what you paid for,” and “Good luck with that!”

We can’t blame business owners for choosing such providers because most of them don’t understand the difference between professional website designs and the more sketchy designs. Plus, the low prices and technical promo jargons sound attractive and beneficial to an average consumer. That said, to help customers avoid this common mistake, here are the things you should look for in a qualified web design provider:

Mobile Web: How A Mobile-Responsive Website Can Lead to More Sales

Filed under: web design — Tags: , , — alicepham @ 1:29 pm

Today having a dedicated web presence is essential for nearly all organizations. Consumers are connected to the internet almost constantly (via smartphones, tablets, and laptops) and they expect instant access to information they want via search engines. People’s tendency to stay connected and get their information from mobile devices allows them to learn about products and services faster than ever before. This creates an opportunity for YOU.

What opportunity does this create for me?

We all know Google is the primary search tool people use online to find information about things they want to learn, and products and services they want to purchase. What’s becoming clearer over time though, is the fact that more and more people are using their mobile devices to get their information prior to making purchases. In order for your website to display properly on mobile devices – it must be built to be “mobile responsive” which means it will adjust to whatever device it’s being viewed on. Websites that are not yet mobile responsive will lose viewers as people give up on websites that are not user-friendly on their devices (i.e. smartphones and tablets.) A recent report by web analysis firm Netbiscuits, which took the opinions of 6,000 people in the US, UK, Brazil, China, and India, revealed that 96% of viewers abandoned websites due to poor experiences on their mobile devices. This statistic points out the big difference (and lost opportunity) between standard websites and mobile responsive ones, which some organizations are unaware of. As of today a large percentage of websites still run as standard websites (or non-mobile responsive). This means once you revamp your organization’s website to be mobile responsive, you are more likely to set yourself apart from your competitors, and give yourself an opportunity to gain market share.
