Web Design Trends for 2017 (Part 2 of 2)



2017 is leaving us with no shortage of new web design trends to take for a spin and see how they work. I always stress that you should NEVER view your website as static. You need to regularly look at it with fresh eyes and see what needs to be eliminated or added. By keeping your website fresh and interesting, you are keeping visitors interested.

Last week I shared six trends in web design for you to consider using on your own site. Today I’m sharing five more.

    1. Duotone

    In the minimalist family, the duotone is a good option when you’re looking to keep things simple while still adding a pop of interest with a monochromatic palette.

2. Horizontal and Vertical Text

Add dimension by breaking the standard text rules. Shake up your text and run it vertically and horizontally. The page can still be simple, but it will be anything but boring.

3. Mix Geometric Shapes and Patterns

This is a great way to add dimension and texture to your website – not to mention visual appeal.

4. Modular

If you are looking for a clean design option that organizes everything into separate modules, then this one is for you. It works well to compartmentalize different categories of information.

5. Text and Image Overlap

Stacking your text over an image adds visual appeal. Just make sure the text can ALWAYS be easily read. Never sacrifice readability for design.


That does it. I hope this two-part blog gave you some ideas you can implement on your own website in 2017. Have fun!
