From NeXT Computer to mobiles, websites have evolved tremendously embracing technological advances on the fronts of web design and web development. What looked like a page from a book has now taken the form of an artistic masterpiece with a brilliance of its own. The first website was developed only to share information within an organisation, and the web design factor was entirely overlooked. However, today we are standing at a point where a website must appeal, interest and sometimes lure its visitors to specific sections or actions. Evolution of website design can make up for an interesting thesis, while there have been times that we have gone overboard with eye smashing colours and good for nothing web features, the cult of creative web designers and developers have saved the day with jaw-dropping website designs.
We are now at a point where more and more traffic to a website is coming from the mobile. This has meant, lesser navigational buttons, longer and learner designs instead of wider ones, and communication with devices.
The future is all about experience, and that’s the very reason why the idea of User Experience, a term coined by Donald Norman, gained momentum. User experience design incorporates interaction, visual design, information architecture and user research. AI (artificial intelligence) is being fused into web designing to power the websites to become intuitive for enhancing user experience. With the proliferation of websites and changing user behaviour, what is to follow is definitely worth the wait.
