Web Design Trends That Are No Longer In Practice Revealed

Web design trends that are no longer in practice have been revealed. This is according to Kara Jensen, the creative principal of B2B web design agency.

Speaking in a conference attended by various stakeholders in web design industry, Kara Jensen pointed out that there are a number of web design trends that died in 2015 because they no longer meet the needs of individuals in this dynamic world. He also shared his valuable opinion on what should be done to improve web design industry.

Kara Jensen encouraged web designers to be creative and flexible so that they can come up with excellent web design trends that match the needs of their clients. He said that success in modern business which heavily relies on the internet is largely determined by the way websites have been designed. He also added that special focus should be given to B2B web design to enable companies carry out business transactions with other corporations successfully.

Jensen himself has managed to design and launch several websites especially for B2B companies.

According to him, there are some web design trends that are fading away in the web design industry. One such trend is Skeumorphic design. This kind of design creates 3-D effect on the users smartphone or computer screen. It uses tools like highlights and shadows. This trend is no longer useful because it is not scalable. Jensen also said that Skeumorphic design crowds the interface.

Another trend that he said mentioned to have died out is Bad stock photography. This has been caused by stiff competition that is currently being witnessed in the field of stock photography. Jensen asserted that today’s photographers are taking photos with consideration to basic web design elements.

He added that another noticeable trend that has died out is clustered websites. He said that such websites provide too much information thus creating a bad user experience. They therefore discourage users from visting them. He emphasized that today’s website users are only interested in precise information. He also pointed out that b2b web design has shifted from this kind of websites to simple and clean website design.

Jensen also mentioned that auto play media and designing in a silo trends are no more because they have been replaced by other web design trends that focus more on user and customer experience. Jason commented that the experience of the customer is very critical in today’s business. It enables companies retain exististing customers while also attracting new ones.He added that websites should be designed with the customer in mind because they determine the success of the company.

Jensen concluded by encouraging web designers to adopt trends which improve the user experience as a whole. This will encourage more users to visit sites. He said that most of the above trends have died out because of poor user interface, limited functionality, conveying too much information and many more. He further told web designers to design websites that can benefit companies by making it easy for users to read website content.

Hello World

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
