Design Trends in 2017
In today’s fast-changing eCommerce world, it’s challenging for any Web Designer to
predict the future. What’s new today may be outdated tomorrow! To deliver
customers a seamless shopping experience and also put yourself one step ahead of
the competition, you as a designer need to constantly assess the merits of current
Mobile Friendly eCommerce Web Design
This is the top most eCommerce Web Design Trend in 2017. Improving the
eCommerce site for mobile devices is a necessary trend in light of the fact that with
the development of mobile users, mobile Web-based shopping time now surpasses
laptop/PC online shopping time. Having a mobile-friendly site is a must.
Images are far more fascinating and time-saving than text boxes; this is just one
reason why tiled navigation is becoming increasingly famous among ecommerce
websites. Rather than the traditional top navigation bar we’re habitual to looking at,
ecommerce websites are implementing preview in the form of tiles. Using image
tiles instead of lists diminishes the possibility of getting lost and gives users a
preview of what they’re going to see.
Hidden menus, most commonly a variation on hamburger menus, have become
tremendously popular due to cleaning up of a lot of clutter on eCommerce sites.
Initially they were designed for use on mobile, but increasingly they’re making their
way into desktop designs.
Large & Flexible Typography
Content is certainly king, but the way you represent the content demonstrates how
powerful the king really is! Just like 2015, 2016 will be a notable year for large
responsive typography that works great on all kinds of devices ranging from a small
screen mobile, to a large desktop monitor.
Material – it is the visual language and the whole design philosophy baby which was
born from the Google bosom last year. Though this design style only now become a
bit structured and really clear as for users as for designers. A promotion punch from
its creators already made this design style a game-changer.
Larger and Bigger Backgrounds
Video backgrounds and larger pictures have already become an ongoing trend of
current e-commerce websites which were designed in 2015. However, there are few
more stores which need to follow this trend. This actually helps brands in telling
their product stories and also attracts the attention of the users towards some
special service or product. It is, therefore the best practice to customize
backgrounds for each unique customer as per their preferences.
Flat Design Evolution
Flat design has been a huge hit, but its popularity has started to decrease, and this
trend is sure to continue in 2017. With the ascension of the virtual reality
technology, the material design patterns we are used to be getting more complex.
This evolution will inevitably result in more creative multi-dimensional schemes that
charm the viewer on many levels. Experts predict that the ‘card’ layout, one of the
hottest trends of the moment, will remain strong for mobile devices. However, as it’s
not very effective for large screens, we should expect some more creative patterns
in this area.
A GIF is actually a still picture, a photograph to which a small, repeating computer
animation has actually been included. The effect is a type of mini-video experience a
lot more subtle compared to the animations on Ling's Cars, however still attracting.
It is already a trend for quite a long time and almost everyone is accustomed to long
scrolls thanks to mobile devices. Clicking in a mobile device can be an issue, but the
scrolling is so habitually that you understand it on a hunch.
This is a prerequisite feature for any online store and it is extremely necessary for
the website to be not only mobile-friendly but it should also be displayed perfectly
on any smart device. Browsing through high-resolution devices and shopping
through them has become the latest trend and hence your website design should
perfectly open on all sorts of browsers and devices.
