Web design Predictions for 2017
I’ve done some research on what new web design features we should expect in 2017.
Here, I’ve got the short list of the most interesting findings, please check it out.
Prediction 1 Cinemagraphs
What is Cinemagraphs?
It’s a still image / photo where some movements occur, like smoke coming out of cigarette or moving wheels. This is a very powerful visual effect, it enhances a website feel and look and makes it stand out. Cinemagraphs are better to use than videos as they are not taking up so much space on web hosting and also not consuming that much bandwidth.

Prediction 2 Semi-flat design
Evolved from a flat design due to some pitfalls, introduced by Microsoft after the launch of Windows 8 and Metro style. It’s now become a wonderful alternative to flat design. We should expect a further grow of use of semi-flat design in 2017.
Prediction 3 Custom-made Illustrations
One of the best ways to get a website a unique look and feel is to have custom-made illustrations. But, of course, you can go and grab something an already existing from one of the many websites which provide a free or premium vector images, however, it won’t give your website that unique experience as you may have with the custom-made icons for example.
The trends above are just the short list of what may come in 2017. Do you have something interesting to share? Drop me a comment with your thoughts in the section below.
