You have probably seen a lot of articles on web design trends for 2015. Ghost buttons, card design, large background images and videos, scrolling instead of clicking, material design… You have heard it all already, haven’t you?
But have you ever wondered where web design industry as a whole is going and how can you keep up with it?
Here are some of the design industry trends that you should be aware of as a web designer in 2015.
2015 continues to be a fantastic year for fonts. Type designers are increasingly prolific and there’s a new design for every possible project, often completely free, or with a free option or weight.

Showing your designs in context — in other words, as they’re more likely to be seen by others — is key to helping your client visualise the outcome of a project. It’s like buying a car. The car might look amazing in the showroom, but you’ll still want a test drive. That’s why showing an identity in context can be what finally gains consensus with your client.

In the process of web designing, a great web design, or a fresh UI design is nothing but helping the visitor to complete a provided task as simply and efficiently as possible, in the least possible time, and with the least possible efforts.
While the look of the site, and feel is certainly vital, at the core of a great UI is function: in terms of navigation, it should be intuitive to the point of being invisible. As soon as a user gets lost in the complicated user interface on your website or app, or can’t work out where to go, the UI that you designed has terribly failed. So, now you know how important is it to design a wonderful and easy to access.
Get your new designer-client relationship off to a flying start by investing some time in proper consultation, says Simon Foster.

At least once a day a client would come in to the salon, sit in my chair and produce a picture from a magazine of how he/she would like their hair to look.

Creative director and founder of Anton & Irene, Anton presents his checklist for better designs.
This design checklist is a guide that I created for myself over time – it allows me to find the balance between the two extremes I face daily as a designer.
At times I can get carried away and only focus on all the little details without seeing the project from a bird’s-eye view, while at other times I only think of the project from a holistic perspective, without really focusing on the important details.
Following these 10 steps allows me to stay on track with multiple projects simultaneously, and allows for a healthier design process overall.
