18 Pivotal 2014 Web Design Trends [+ Scenttrail take] | Design | Scoop.it
What web design trends do you think we'll see in 2014? I'm betting on more simplicity, more cleanliness, and more focus on smaller screen sizes, among other things.Marty Note1. Flat UI - AGREE and general agreement.2. 'Mobile first' - AGREE! & trying to wrestle that pig to ground now with CrowdFunde.3. Yet more scrolling - Agree and coming from mobile too. 4. More HTML5 goodness - Agree. 5. More HTML5 badness - Yes goes hand-in-hand with #46. Micro UX - New to me, can't judge yet. 7. Less text - Agree we are moving to the visual web and lean content (more infographics, arresting images and graphics less text).8. Minimalist navigation - Agree and this is coming from MOBILE (working CrowdFunde's "mobile first" design right now and navigation is expensive in mobile.9. CSS replaces images - Agree CSS Canvas is going to make many images needless weight on the page.10. Video / moving backgrounds - AGREE!11. Richer content experiences - Agree especially video.12. Making the most of one page - Agree, but don't agree with single page sites (we aren't there yet).13. Varied typography - Agree there is a lot happening on the server side with type.14. Monochromatic design - New to me, but more likely than15. Hypercolour - Not Sure color is easy to do BAD online and more color can make a mess.16. Cards / tiles - Fascinating and new to me, read why cards are future of the webhttp://insideintercom.io/why-cards-are-the-future-of-the-web/17. Bigger, better imagery (Agree, cloud caching and CDNs making this possible).18. Fixed position content / navigation - Agree as social widgets already doing this

30 Brilliant 404 Error Page Designs & Why That's Important | Creative Bloq

30 Brilliant 404 Error Page Designs & Why That's Important | Creative Bloq | Design | Scoop.it
The 404 page is a standard response code in HTTP telling the user, in effect, that they've clicked on a broken link. Marty NoteWhen I was Director of Ecommerce we had a period where our 404 (not found) page was shown so often it got indexed in Google. You don't want that (lol), but you DO want your 404 page to create a sense of missed opportunity. Your "not found" page needs to create a sense of easy correction and reassurance. Your site (and by extension YOU) are for real. The 404 page that provides a sense of stability, missed opportunity and a clear path to correction can win back what might otherwise be a lost customer. One way a website creates trust is to manage everything with a sense of commitment and quality. When our 404 page was showing up so much it got ranked I made sure to apologize and share a special offer code. There was a period when that offer was our most popular redemption (again NOT GOOD lol). A visitor might "fish" your site typing a nonsense sequence to see what you offer. My thought was always HAVE AT IT (lol). For the honest traveler who ends up seeing your 404 (especially if YOU are at fault) having a great design and a promotion code can safe the day.
