Latest Trends in web designing
We would get started with the alarming trends of future web designs and get an overview of our classical patterns and present features. I would strongly recommend not leaving away our classical patterns and present trends in the future but it should be a collaborative pattern.
We may discuss the following topics as mentioned below:
2015 as the year of flat and simple designs
Micro - interactions and pop ups
Interactive story telling
Large header backgrounds remain as it is
Interactive video designs
2015 as the year of smart phones and Responsive designs

2015 as the year of Flat and Simple Designs
As we have entered into 2015 the greatest trend in web designing is the flat design which greatly resembles the "simplicity" and nothing else. As we all know Apple wholly get remarked for its simplicity and stylish trends. I am not trying to say to follow up their design trends but to simplify our designs. It gets to please the user's eyes while we simplifies and flattens our backgrounds.
Micro - Interactions and Pop-ups
Another one to improve user-interactions friendly is to make use of micro-interactions and pop-ups. Users like to interact in a light way like filling a simple form or pop-ups rather than using complex forms to accomplish their request. I also hate to sit and read all the questions and make an attempt to answer it. So it is good to fill the pop-ups or adding an interactive chat session to our website.
According to my view, people hate to scroll the pages and so our latest trend of giving clicks to scroll up and down is a holistic approach. It is good and mind-blowing to make use of large images and videos in the background as it seems always eye pleasing and give a greater value to our content.
Hope we may bid farewell to complex designs (should be used if necessary) in the 2014 and welcome this New Year by flat and simple user friendly designs.
Interactive story telling
Videos will become more influential rather than passages. The reason is simple people like watching more than reading and it's much easier to tell a company's story and create emotion with motion graphics, even if it is just a short rotating clip.
For example we could make instructions to apply for a job in a video clip rather than using huge misunderstandable instructions sets.
Large header backgrounds are here to stay!
Large header images have become increasingly popular in recent months. Lots of hip websites have used these large images to create a sense of personality and warmth. However, as is the way with these things, it can be overdone. That said we don't see there being any push back on it this year.
One potential issue is that large images don't help site loading times and this could be another reason for people to move away from this. Site loading times must be quicker with the continuing consumer move to mobile.

Interactive video designs
Last year there was been a great need for websites. This year certainly saw more video backgrounds, animated GIFs and simple icon animations. But best of all we're seeing more and more UI and interaction driven animation.



2015 as the year of smart phones and Responsive designs

The year 2015 will finally see the shift where more individuals browsing on mobiles rather than on traditional computers. If you cannot easily browse a website on your device, you are not going to come back to it. It is necessary that the developers think like a website user or customer at times. This is why responsive design is so important. It allows a particular website to detect the screen size it is being pulled up on, and automatically adjust to best fit that screen size. This ensures that you are getting the best user experience possible, regardless of what screen size or device they are viewing your site


Summary

The remarkable trends of 2014 look as if they will goes on to 2015, with a few of them grown innovative. In this case I'm saying particularly about simple, material or flat designs and microinteractions(pop-ups). The latter of which discuss about responsive designs, Interactive videos, header patterns underlying concept will undoubtedly remain and mature.

The year 2015 will finally see the shift where more individuals browsing on mobiles rather than on traditional computers. If you cannot easily browse a website on your device, you are not going to come back to it. It is necessary that the developers think like a website user or customer at times. . I also believe that as certain micro interactions become more popular in situations that have traditionally required custom development, the community will provide turn-key solutions via plug-ins; like they have with various popup form plugins.
Most of all, I think the future of these trends will be decided by how far we push them in the months to come. Where will we find limitations that require refinement or perhaps going in a new direction altogether? I know I'm looking forward to watch the upcoming trends.
If, however, you already have some ideas or thoughts on where things are headed in 2015 or my take on the design trends in this post, please feel free to leave them in the comments below!
