mobile web designWeb design trends are shaped by what people frequently use and find efficient. Lots of this year’s trends are descendants of older trends that have evolved over time and become better. A key player in web design trends is the convenience of mobile devices. The more people rely on mobile devices to do searches, get information, and shop, the more web design will continue to move toward responsive web design and other mobile developments. As a result, we’re sharing four wonderful blogs on the best mobile web design trends of 2015 to help you design a great website:

10 Web Design Trends that Will Change Everything in 2015 In 2014, the biggest web design trends included: grid layouts, flat design, background videos, and the increasing capabilities of HTML5 APIs. So which trends, technologies, and techniques will define 2015? Net magazine set out to uncover them by asking 20 of the web’s brightest designers, developers and thinkers. Here’s our list of 2015’s defining trends.

15 Examples of Great Mobile Website Design Now more than ever, businesses are focusing on creating delightful mobile website experiences. After all, 80% of Internet users are using smartphones to search online. What’s more, marketers are gearing up for a big change Google plans to make to their algorithm starting on April 21, 2015. Google wrote in their official blog that they will be “expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal,” and their update should have a significant effect on marketers. When Google makes this change, it will have a bigger impact than Panda or Penguin. To put that in context, their Panda update impacted only about 12% of queries, and Penguin affected about 4% of mobile and desktop queries. In other words, if you haven’t been focusing on improving your mobile experience, you’d better prioritize it now, or your search ranking might suffer. According to a Search Engine Land article about the update, there will be “no degrees of mobile friendliness” — your site will either be judged as mobile-friendly … or not.

5 Big Mobile Design Trends of 2015 I remember the predictions like this back in the late 2000’s. They sounded a little outlandish at the time, but it’s 2015 and the predictions were right, kids! In fact, Comscore had us passing the ‘tipping point’ early last year. While it no doubt varies from site to site, for general purposes we can think of desktop users as a minority – in some sense a ‘fringe group’. So, it follows that if mobile is now the majority viewing device, ‘designing for mobile’ is now just plain ‘designing’ now. With that in mind, today we are running down five big trends that you can expect to see through mobile design in 2015. If you’re looking to redesign your apps or create a new one I suggest you check out the list.

7 Future Web Design Trends Too many articles will tell you what is cool in web design. I’m going to take you past the obvious to make some real predictions. 1. Gestures are the new clicks. We forget how hard scrolling webpages used to be. Most users would painstakingly move their mouse to the right edge of the screen, to use something ancient called a ‘scrollbar’. In 2015, it’s far easier to scroll than it is to click. On mobile, you can scroll wildly with your thumb. As a result, we should expect more and more websites to be built around scrolling first, and clicking second.

The best mobile web design trends of 2015 are summed up perfectly in these four blogs, and they should help and inspire you in your own website creation.
