  • Responsive Web Design Archives - Toxic Creative
    in a company s web design The company should focus on reaching consumers where the consumers already are On an obvious level this means that a company needs to make sure that its site looks nice on a tablet laptop or phone the site needs to load quickly and be easy to navigate on all devices of all sizes On a less obvious level these ideas point toward a need to tap into what customers think when they are shopping for the products or services that the company offers It would be a mistake to design a website that reflects only the employees and corporate atmosphere of a business The site needs to look like it was made for consumers A business would be more successful if it polled its consumers and adjusted its marketing campaign to reach the people who are buying its services Image trends are changing An interesting trend in web design is the increasing number of pixels that are contained in a single image unit Designers are creating multiple versions of the same image with the clearest most detailed versions made to show up on the newest devices Another purely aesthetic trend is the use of one big background image that stays in place Old web templates attached text and smaller images to backgrounds so the background images would scroll along with the rest of the content When the large image is fixed in place all of the content scrolls on top of it With the background tacked in place one way of displaying text is placing it on transparent panels The background is visible underneath rectangles that provide contrast allowing text to be easily read This makes text legible without making the images in the background unrecognisable Less can sometimes be more Minimalism is becoming very popular in the youth market A minimal landing page with a fashionable design can be loaded on any device and if it links to a more complex main website there is a greater chance that consumers will visit that site eventually A landing page doesn t always have to convey every bit of information about a company Building a brand and establishing an aesthetic identity is sufficient in some cases Some new trends are conducive to rapid consumption of information A tool bar that stays attached to the top of a browser while the body of a website scrolls underneath it allows a viewer to access search features and other parts of the website without having to roll up to the beginning of the page Continuous scrolling scripts load new information constantly so customers do not have to click over to new pages to keep reading A great deal of information can be contained on a single page with sliding panels and circular image bubbles Instead of overwhelming customers with blocks of text the same content can be displayed in images with dynamic properties This way consumers will enjoy looking at the website and will be more likely to
