Deciding on what is the best is not an easy thing.
So this post is entirely subjective. But I will certainly do my utmost to be objective when it comes to web design.
But we are seriously looking at what is sexy, and not necessarily functional web design (that is more for SAAS companies and websites). Because unfortunately functional is a little boring.
So without holding back any further here are some of the best web designs of 2014.
A Little Surprising Web Design
Starting with the last first, here is number five of our best web designs of 2014.
You are not sure what is happening at first, and then the video comes into focus.
Street art on display as web design. This design is inspiring and surprising. Of course it is not always practical for a company to do such a site, but for something artistic, video backgrounds are great.
Watch as the scene changes and things come to life with Street Art.
If it is not video that is taking over home pages, then it is massive images with a little text sprinkled in.
Visuals certainly do sell, and this trend is taking off like a rocket.
I have found a great example of this with Aether.
Bold Fonts Dominate
The usage of amazing and bold fonts in modern web design is becoming a very domiating aspect of design.
Although all designs are using custom fonts these days, it is on some particular websites that you see fonts dominating.
These poster like displays are very eye catching and are certainly a great example of the web design trends in 2014.
Check out the homepage from We Are Envoy. Although you can’t see it here on the screen shot, they have also used an underlying background video.
Sometimes it is overkill, and does not help load time, but they have done a great job.
Retro Vector Graphics
A lot of designers are going back to their roots, or perhaps their childhood and taking inspiration.
In this example we see no photographic, but just simple retro colored vector graphics to highlight the features of this tool.
This is certainly not a dominating trend today, but it is seen quite a bit, so we thought we would show you an example.
Whether you notice them or not, there are a lot of different web design trends happening right now and some of them are really rocking the internet.
So on your next design project why not give your website a boost with some of these ideas, which are hip and trendy!
