An updated look at the hottest best web design trends of 2014 including a showcase of modern web design inspiration.

This @justcreative post hit many nails on the head when it was initially published and Jacob's update of Helga Moreno's post doesn't disappoint either. Things I REALLY agree with:

See Less of (PLEASE):

* Stock photography (no photos? ASK your employees / followers for help but please no more Stepford people in pics on websites).
* Flash (has killed more #seo and sites than you can shake a stick at and fact it is still alive is amazing).
* Capcha - spam sucks but so do capcha forms.

More of PLEASE:

* Content First (implied in Responsive or Mobile First Design is a new way of thinking about, tagging and presenting content).
* Interactive Exploring (BIG AGREEMENT see my post about Time is Money Online https://plus.google.com/+MartinWSmith/posts/RdjAjWoJTHw and tag this next to #gamification).
* Arresting pictures and Video (YES, your great content will be ignored or under-shared UNLESS it is paired with strong visual hooks and supports).

Great post by Helga for Just Creative and so TRUE to our experience of web dev in 2014 for leading ecommerce clients such as Moon Audio.com.

5 Gaming Trends to Watch in 2014 For Web Designers

5 Gaming Trends to Watch in 2014 For Web Designers | El Mundo del Diseño Gráfico | Scoop.it

Between brand new consoles and blossoming indie development, this is a year to watch the gaming industry.

The longer I do this (Internet marketing) the more I think lines between content don't make much sense. Uber-content curator Maria Popova (http://www.brainpickings.org) agrees. One of my 2014 goals is to learn as much from Maria as possible. 

Another goal is to mine helpful ideas from wherever they arise. Video games is and has been a huge goldmine for web design, Internet marketing and creative ideas and this post on 5 Gaming Trends to Watch In 2014 from @RWW is right on the money.

Particularly important for website designers is emphasis on storytelling and the cloud. Both will change what we Internet marketers do in 2014 in amazing ways. Great post and I promise to continue to "steal" as much from video game creators as possible :). M

18 Pivotal 2014 Web Design Trends [+ Scenttrail take] | El Mundo del Diseño Gráfico | 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 Note

1. 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 #4

6. 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 than


15. 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 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
