It was originally planned to place a translation of an English-language article on web design trends in 2017, but after studying various sources, we decided to slightly change the concept of this note. The thing is that over the past month on the Internet has been published a lot of thematic materials about current trends in web design, and opinions, as they say, have diverged. On the one hand, this is logical, since different authors have their own assumptions about what will be relevant for sites in the current year. On the other hand, these forecasts are very subjective.

Let’s start with the most popular trends, which are noted by many experts, and gradually move on to more “unique” ideas. By the way, if you have additions and thoughts on the topic, feel free to share them in the comments. Plus, we recommend reading about the trends of logos in 2017 – also a useful post.

Back in 2014, we published an interesting selection of designs of Japanese anime sites. Surely you can guess that the works there are presented quite specific and original. They are very different from the generally accepted standard approaches to web design, for example, in Europe or the United States. The visual design of Japanese online sites is very colorful, it uses a lot of different bright graphics, images, plus the pages are literally “crammed” with texts.
For many users, it is difficult to perceive such web projects, they look confusing, and even in some places they strain a little. However, as correctly noted in the comments to the previous article, this approach to design is a consequence of specific cultural traditions. During the time of isolation from the outside world, there have been formed their own trends in art, which are also expressed when creating web-design.
Despite the rather unusual approaches, there are several things you can learn from Japanese online sites. Here are 5 simple lessons, the article is a translation of this note. Continue reading
