In previous decades, we got used to landing on a website and experiencing pretty much the same thing. Oh,there has always been some diversity in colour, pictures, illustration and typography, but we always had a menu across the top and/or down the side, and other elements contained in boxes so that we can easily see them and follow the commands.
Gradually,over time, web designers, UI specialists and layout artists have experimented with designs, and each year new trends have emerged that take layouts to an entirely new level. As we look at 2015, a year that is already half over, we have seen some trends come to the forefront, creating dynamic and compelling experiences for users.
Designers are also beginning to combine tried-and-tested elements in creative and experimental ways. The following five trends, with examples, are presented individually but, in fact, many of these elements are combined in intriguing ways and will probably drive even new layouts for 2016.
