Web design is over as we all know.
The web is here! Designers must move on to ecosystems and products for them to remain relevant.
Web design is dying. This is a scary statement yet it’s true. Web design as a discipline has already exhausted its potential. But a new mix of tech trends and cultural trends suggests the need for more of a holistic approach.
Let’s start with indications of imminent death.
Symptom 1: Templates are used to sell through Commoditization
The majority of the content on the internet today is created using the framework.
The HTML0 templates are widely used and can be used to make professional-looking websites in no time. Many web developers, particularly those at the lower portion of the market choose a pre-made template, and then add branding customizations.
Whatever your site’s needs are, there are likely templates that can work for you.
Symptom 2. Web Design Styles are Mature
What’s the latest web innovation in design that you can draw attention to? Responsive designs? This is digital age old. Parallax? Parallax? All of elements of the web’s user interface and patterns have been there for quite some time now. (And no, we never had to use parallax). ). This is the reason why web designs haven’t been updated for a long time.
This development will enable users to utilize the internet in an continuous manner. It’s unlikely to develop any original ideas.
3 Symptoms: Automation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning already doing the Work
The Grid is a pioneer in the field of automated web design services. This service develops websites with basic functionality and makes design decisions based on artificial intelligence.
It analyses your content and determines best layouts, colors, fonts, and fonts that will make your site. The outcome is likely to be far superior to the work of an average web designer.
A service that is automated is one that produces designs quickly and efficiently.
Symptom #4: Facebook Pages Are the New Small-Business Website
Innovative companies purchased their.com’s in the mid 1990’s, and then paid high hosting costs. The Web Page was the page that made them visible to the rest. It was easy to set up a site in Blogger or WordPress.com in 2005.
Facebook pages have totally replaced this feature. These pages are free and can be made popular immediately. They are a powerful tool that were only available to big businesses just a decade ago, such as subscriptions for updates or media post, and they’re just as simple to set up as your personal profile page. The tools are so efficient in making a company more visible, they have transformed basic websites into obsolete.
5. Symptom The Web is dying due to mobile devices
How often do your smartphones allow you to visit a website simply by typing in the URL? You’ll be unable to access the app if don’t have it. Today people don’t think in terms of websites. They think of digital brands. They are thinking in terms of digital brands.
Mobile web is slow and cumbersome. It is difficult to type addresses. It is difficult to switch between tabs. The web experience that we enjoy on our desktop computers is not as smooth as it is on mobile devices due to their low power and excessively crowded data networks.
A responsive web design is important (not making use of it is committing digital suicide). But, it doesn’t guarantee that your user will be able to access your web page on the device of their choice. Apps occupy most of the brain’s space.
Web Services are on the rise, and Content is What You Find You
We should have fewer web pages and not more. We have too many websites trying to grab our attention. It’s foolish to believe that we’re in a position to explore navigational hierarchies , and enjoy the enthralling effects of transitions, intros and effects.
It’s not the way pages are laid out that is important. But, the end result is better for the user.
Web design has outlived its potential as a field.
The recent Android M updates are a step in the right direction towards digital assistants like Siri and Google Now. They will provide you with the information you require, whenever you need it. That means that web pages are replacing web-based services. These services are self-sufficient information that can then be integrated with other services in order to make value.
We are moving towards a push-based model for content consumption. We are moving to a pull-based model for content consumption.
Web pages will not disappear and that’s not to say that they won’t. Web pages will not go away however they’ll stay around for a while as they have certain purposes and will be useful for a long time to come.
Website pages are static content and need to be found easily (pull-based). The push-based approach is where the content is found. Content and tools will intelligently appear to you when they are most required by using information that comes from your surroundings, activities as well as biometrics.
The main benefit of smartwatches is they gather information from your body and present you with small bits of information to assist your brain to process the information. Computer technology is making great strides to make your sight disappear.
What does HTML0 what does it mean to you?
Web Design is dead, long live d Design
The good news is that designers are not out of date. You can observe that the need for designers is on the rise and that everyone is redesigning their online products.
The shift away from websites to digital products, tools and ecosystems is directly responsible for the transition from web design into user experience design. Mobile apps API’s, social media and presence are all part of the larger picture. Search engine optimization, customer support channels, physical location, and optimizing search engines all have an impact on the user’s experience with the brand, product or service.
Every touchpoint must be planned, designed , and controlled.
Technology is disappearing from our memory We only get to experience the value it transmits. Designers who are looking to stay in the business world must be proficient in managing value and content across many channels.
We have to wake up. We are part of the issue. We’ve contributed to the creation of self-righteous websites who believe that they should be rewarded and monitored for the efforts they’ve made to develop them. In a world that is flooded of cognitive noise, it is more important than ever to design simple, intelligent and integrated information systems. This is a vital necessity that designers must be aware of. We can better prepare for the future when we act fast.
