As a web development company we are constantly building, refining, and dealing with an ever-changing Web technology landscape. Our developers come across interesting technical challenges daily, some of which can be pretty complex.
Finding a solution to the "impossible" is what we do best. You could say we thrive on problem solving. Once we were working on a web project and it's a complete platform where users can design their own canvas by customizing photos, apply different effects on the photos and the prints will be created using the highest quality materials, and delivered to their doorstep in a matter of days. On the phase frontend development, our developers face the problem to handle the different design layout of canvas on various resolutions, duration of animated elements, delays, types and effects on different elements. While working on these features, we started to encounter strange bugs surrounding the animations. Particular transitions started having artifacts show up in certain browsers on isolated machines.
We handled this problem by selecting the parent element instead of the element directly. Using blackface-visibility and web kit may also work. Though it uses a lot of memory and can cause devices to crash, one should avoid adding this as a blanket rule in their CSS.
You should feel free to use these methods knowing it can improve rendering quite a bit, but test thoroughly and know the risks.
The user interface, also sometimes called a human-computer interface, comprises both hardware and software components. It handles the interaction between the user and the system. In the start of 21st century new revolutionary era stared in the technology and it growths day by day.
How things are changing rapidly?
How technology is growing fast and what will be the upcoming age of this revolution?
Now UI trying to grasp the attention via creative ways and different technologies are introducing in market to make UI more and more elegant. In our point of view, where new technologies are trying to making UI appealing where it should not forget about the User Experience (UX) because it increase the productivity of your websites.
Trends of Web Design
Let's talk about the succeeding trends of UI which are boosting in these days.
The most "transparent" and "lenient" UI design in which each content 'text', 'photos' and 'white background' puts the all intention of the users and he may can easily interact with this type of flat design. Now most of the product owners prefer to use it in their product because its user friendly and they always thinking more about a value of products and not just how its look.
UI Interactions with Animations:
Feels like you are interacting with the 'real world' stuffs this is an Animations. It makes our product's interface digital interface; there is no need to touch or click anything it takes to you to your required destination. Now you no need to explore the product it automatically tells about itself and it informs through tactile response. Vibration is only one useful technique to provide tactile feedback. Hopefully, one day, touch devices would have a different temperature in different screen zones (for example primary call to action is hotter and back button is the coldest one).
Weapon in Designer's Hands:
The most important part is to construct the structure of any website or mobile application which is done by a "Designer". They fill the gap between "Real world" and "Digital Interfaces"; they still are exploring new things to making UI more innovative. Some abilities every designer has to play their visual roles are following:
- Fundamentals of design imaging
- Basic web design
- Multimedia design
- Content management
- Editing for video and audio
Exploring interfaces for virtual and augmented reality is a real trend of nowadays and might be a trend in the future as well. It's a place where UI gets a new live in 3d and flat design still widely used for informational elements.
This interface is not about the responsive web design. It is more about the interfaces that fit according to the user needs. It is more about removing the unused UI Elements and increasing the size of most used things. This type of UI interfaces are helpful to responsive the each aspect of UI on all the smart devices.
Patterns of Web Design
Spread of UI Patterns:
In the responsive designs each element of sites looks similar and that is a side effect of responsive design but it is not a bad thing that things look similar on all devices. Now UI design patterns have matured looks and that is not actually looking similar things on responsive design. There is little way of innovation when it comes to UI patterns. Some patterns make the responsive design more affective and different from others: Hamburger menu, Account registration via different social networks, Long scroll which helps user to see the all details and elements, card layout have been steadily growing in popularity over the past few years and evolving alongside other techniques like responsive design and flat design and Hero images are proved to be helpful to specify about the sites through the banner image on the home page.
Use of the animations on any site making the experience of users more interactive and entertaining. Animations tell the site story and purpose and personality. Animations used on two terms:
- Large scale animations [Handles Parallax scrolling and Pop-up notifications]
- Small scale animations [Handles Hover tools and loading bars]
Some animations techniques are appealing the UI design pattern and helps user to understand the scope and interact easily with the sites. Popular animation techniques are:
- Loading Animation
- Hover Animation
- Slideshows and Galleries
- Background animations/Videos
It occur all around you, from the toggle of an on or off switch to skipping from one song to the next on a music player to liking a social media post to replying to a text message. Most of these actions are things users rarely think about when it comes to how they work or look (as long as they are working properly). Micro-interaction is the secret of great app design.
Micro-interactions tend to do, or help you do several different things:
- Communicate a status or bit of feedback
- See the result of an action
- Help the user operate something
Almost every new client these days wants a mobile version of their website. It's practically essential after all one design for the BlackBerry, another for the iPhone, the iPad, notebook, Kindle and all screen resolutions must be compatible too. In the next five years, we will need to design for a number of additional inventions.
When will the stupidity stop? It can't, of course.
In other words, the website should have the technology to automatically respond to the user's likings. This would eliminate the need for a different design and development phase for each new gadget on the market. There is no doubt that responsive design is highly useful and versatile, but it also should be lightning fast in order to deliver a great user experience.
We as web Development Company follow these trends in the development of websites according to the client's need. Trends and patterns are just additional tools to make your website more appealing always pick the right one for the job.
