An interesting question showed up on Quora recently. What will be the biggest web design trends in 2015? At Extra Nerds, we like to monitor these kinds of discussions not only because we are nerds, but also because it's important for us to stay on top of what's changing in the world of web design and development. And, we figured you might be interested too since, if you're reading this blog entry right now, you may be interested in making sure your website is on the bleeding edge.
Quora user Jowita Ziobro, Director of Delighten, provides the best answer to this question, elaborating in generous detail on what trends to watch. In particular, she talks about how gestures are the new clicks, content below "the fold" is less relevant, users are quicker, websites are simpler, pixels are dead, animations are back, components are the new frameworks, and how social media campaigns are reverting back to email. It's a lot to take in, but it's well worth the read if you're interested in making sure your website is catering to the modern audience.
