We have all witnessed the evolution of web design since the internet made its debut. As new devices are introduced to the market these days with access to the online world, styles of web design is also adjusting to this change. This article will cover a variety of changes that 2014 will likely take on.

CSS3 Effects

Many modern browsers now support the much anticipated CSS3. This means fancy websites with transitions and 3D effects can load faster than they used to be. Examples include image galleries, menus, and even headers. With many online tools such as a CSS generator, anyone will be able to implement these trendy designs without needing to know much knowledge of how to code.

Jquery Effects

To go along with the CSS3 effects, many designers are integrating Jquery effects into their design as well. Similar to CSS, it offers instant animations and alterations that can be called directly from the browser without having to additionally download something from the server. Some examples include having the option to remove a DIV box by clicking on an X, expanding search bars and loading content via AJAX. With the rise of mobile devices, Jquery has also been responsible for creating swipe effects, fading scroll bars and even finger control for viewers using a tablet or mobile device.

Grid-Style Themes

Pinterest was the first website that started the ease and effectiveness of using a grid-style layout. These days, we have seen a tremendous amount of websites taking on this fashion, including Twitter and Tumblr. Even Windows 8 has adopted this strategy. There is no doubt many of the main streams websites from blogs to fashion brands will do this too. The advantage of such design is that it is easy to read, condensed and gentle on the eyes.

Large Pictures

To go with the idea of being simple, many designers are now opting for large pictures with very minimum editing for their headers and backgrounds. Thanks to the growing availability of the internet and more powerful internet connections, this has been a positive thing for both designers and users.

Speedy user Signups

Many people want to be able to quickly access website contents and having to spend several minutes registering an account can be a big turn off. Many websites are now offering sign ups by using social media accounts, whether it be Facebook or Gmail, where the user simply enter their existing username and password, and their new account will be created. If you somehow decide to not integrate social media login, it is very important that the registration process is simple and to the point. Try limiting to only username, birthday and email.
