What are some web design trends to consider when creating your new self-hosted WordPress site?
According to an article I read on The Var Guy, web design in 2015 will be dominated by two factors: mobile devices and video content. In fact, according to the author, “YouTube is No. 2 in search engines,” and “some 40 percent of YouTube’s traffic now comes from mobile devices.” This powerful piece of information confirms that web surfers are searching for videos, and almost half of them are doing so on their mobile devices.
The remainder of the article lists some specific web design elements, all of which are essentially geared towards making your website more mobile friendly. While Matthew McDonald touches on the importance of keeping mobile devices in mind when designing your WP site, this article really sold that point for me. So, future web designers, be prepared for an ever-increasing presence of mobile video watching and read the above article for some design tips on maximizing your site’s ability to accommodate these trends.
