Web design trends can be tempting to jump on when you’re looking to revamp your website, or simply start afresh. 2017 has brought us several trends in web design. How do you know which one is right for you?
If you’re on the Costa del Sol, then it makes sense you’d be looking for the best web developers in Marbella. Look no further. Optimasit is the ‘go to’ agency for those who require web hosting in the Malaga province, as well as expertise in web design and development.

You wouldn’t venture into unchartered territory without mapping your journey, would you? The same goes for web design. Those who like to plan meticulously in order to narrow the margin for error: journey mapping is for you.v
It’s your customer’s journey you’ll be considering though. This approach to web design means you’ll need to get into the minds and emotions of your target audience and preempt pitfalls to create the best possible experience. User-friendliness is key.
There is no one way to journey map; sketch it out in pencil, storyboard or whiteboard. This framework uncovers the most direct route to creating the ideal web experience, keys into areas that need improvement, and leads to an overall better relationship with the user.
It’s all about the visuals these days, so designing a site with visual impact in mind is wise. People can draw their own interpretations but they’re more likely to remain engaged with powerful images than reams of text.
Imagery needs to be powerful as there is a lot of competition out there; platforms such as Instagram have raised the bar. People are investing a lot more time and effort to acquire the best apps, technology and editing software to create perfect images.
Images that fire up the customer’s imagination and allow them to fantasize are ideal. You’ll still need some simple text, of course, but the more your images can convey, the better. In the same way that high-impact images draw attention, so does a powerful colour scheme, which is another thing worth bearing in mind.
