Web design is a world where new trends arrive every other month. And most of the old ones fizz out without a trace. However, there are some trends which stay for a long time because of their popularity and effectiveness. But everything has a deadline, and the end will come sooner or later.In the world of web design, there are some clear signs of this approaching deadline. One of these signs is the steady disappearance of a trend from the modern-day websites. Here is the list of some web design trends which, I think, will soon cease to exist:Homepage Sliding BannersThe sliding banners in the homepage used to act as a major attraction at one point of time. This trend is still at large, and you can find many websites using these banners. The colors used in the sliding banners are usually very bright. These banners are rich in catchy one-liners and crisp information. However, modern web visitors find them annoying and distracting. As an alternative, they are preferring something like a single-page website which is more interactive and less cluttered.
Flash IntrosDo you remember the flash intros? These are the ones which used to pop up, and try grabbing our attention forcefully. Flash intros are still a part of websites which do not update themselves. The music and animation of the flash intros were fun. However, their way of forcing us to take notice was wrong. This is the reason web visitors like simple websites with limited features these days.Circular Script LogosLogo design was different a few years back. Over 90% of all logos which did not change in a few years used a script font within a circle. Most of them used a full title or a monogram, and fell back on simple outlines or complete coverings. No matter what they used, this logo pattern used to thrill web visitors. Modern visitors love to see unique and informative logos, and most of the companies are now aware that the stereotypical way will not get them anywhere. The ones who are not aware yet, will also realize very soon.
Extensive Fill-out FormsAlmost every website has a contact form. The reason behind this is web designers need to know some basic information about the people who are interacting with them. Most contact forms in modern-day websites are small and sleek. However, there are still some websites which follow the age-old forms that asked tons of questions. This irritates the visitors, and they leave as soon as they realize that the process will take away a lot of time. Modern web visitors are an impatient lot, and these extensive fill-out forms will also die out fast.
