The web development is one of the fastest growing industries today and each year, there are numerous new trends that emerge. No matter whether you are actively involved in web development or you are just looking to setup a new website for your business, understanding the latest innovations in the field is the key to success. So what are the main web design trends to look at in 2015? Here are my top suggestions:

Parallax Scrolling

The main goal of every website is to engage with its visitors and there is no better way to do that than with interactive pages. The parallax scrolling allows you to create unique storytelling experience, when the user scrolls down a page to view its content. This trend is already implemented in many web design templates for pretty much all popular CMS platforms, including WordPress and Joomla.

Card-Based Web Design
Inspired by the success of one of the newest social networks Pinterest, the card-based design has been around us for quite some time. What greatly contributes to its growing popularity is that itâs viewed perfectly on mobile devices, so itâs definitely going to remain relevant and evolve over the next couple of years.
Ghost (Transparent) Buttons

The ghost buttons have transparent background and thin border, which make them perfect for attracting the visitorâs attention and also help declutter the website from unnecessary navigation items.

Website Speed
This is probably one of the most overlooked factors when creating a website, but over the years itâs becoming essential for positive user experience. No matter how well designed and elaborate your website is, if it doesnât load fast, you are likely to lose a substantial amount of your website traffic.
Hidden Menus

An easy and really convenient way to simplify your website is to employ hidden menus. These appear when the user clicks or hoovers over particular website item, so can be of great help if you want to declutter your websiteâs pages.

Responsive, Responsive, Responsive

With Google releasing an algorithmic update targeted specifically at websites with low performance under mobile devices, responsive web design is not optional anymore. Itâs a must have, especially when the visitors accessing your content use not only smartphones, but other devices with bigger screens.

Modular Scrolling
A great way to improve visitor experience and engagement is with the help of modular design. It enables visitors to scroll not only entire pages, but specific content modules as well.
Different Shades of Vibrant Colours
Probably the easiest way to create elegant web design is with neutral background and multiple shades of one vibrant colour. A great way to ensure your main content stands out is to employ few other supplementing colours.
Super-Navigation
Widely employed by some of the biggest websites today, the super-navigation allows consistent and positive user experience across the entire website. It also offers web developers a tidy place to present alerts and a search bar without cluttering the pages.
Conclusion
The trends of web development are dictated solely by user experience - the better it is, the more successful a particular trend will be. No matter whether you decide to use any of the trends in this list, itâs essential to design a website that is neat and visitors can intuitively learn how to use.
