Web 3.0's Whaam!
Just as Roy Lichtenstein’s Whaam! 1963 seemed to blow abstract painting off the walls web 3.0 will change everything we call "website design". After creating Future of Web Design (http://sco.lt/7r6zkf) Haiku Deck I realized some shots were fired but not enough.
Web 3.0 powered by a ubiquitous web for people and things with semantic intelligence changes how we create websites and Internet marketing. Math will be a future web designer’s friend.
Websites will float based on predictive analytics and real time behavior. Behavior responded to with tested creative designed for personas and segments to CONVERT is more Google-like than anything web designers create now.
David Merrill's siftables are the best demonstration of how content will become intelligently self aware AND agnostic to the kind of hubificaiton web designers practice now.
Hubificaiton is about bringing THEM to US. APP-ificaiton is about creating agnostic widgets. Widgets easily placed anywhere (as Amazon's mini-cart widget demonstrates here: http://sco.lt/4iahNZ).
Web 3.0's mobile ubiquitous web will reversing hubification emphasis on traffic density (bring visitors into a hub). Distinctions will chante too. THEM and US will fade in favor of relevant experience (the commons).
In this context CONVERSION becomes an extension of an experience instead of the other way around. We rarely shop / search for things merely for the pleasure of the search.
We may start with one goal in mind and end up achieving a different set of goals, goals created on the fly in real time based on how the web responds to our journey, but our process feels like US.
Predictive analytics, personas, segments and an increasing amount of tested creative controlled by math means our unique feeling of US or ME may continue to exist, but THEIR sense of our next behavior mean this is a distinction without a difference.
If you fit a persona, that persona predicts what relevant content you need when the feeling of having Big Brother on your should could be overwhelming. Mutual benefit is why consumers won't revolt.
When websites convert 40% of their traffic, as Schwan's does now, their efficiency trumps density. Efficiency trumping density describes Web 3.0 perfectly.
We’ve talked a lot here at Designmodo about flat design – so you probably know what the trend is all about at this point.
he short version: Flat design is a style that does not use tricks or embellishments such as shadows, embossing or gradients to make elements look “real.” The design is characterized by a minimalistic style that uses color and typography in bold ways to create a distinct user experience.
For now over a decade, Logo Lounge has formed annual logo design trend reports and they have recently released their 2013 logo design trends report.
Whilst observing the following groups of logos, ask yourself these following questions – Do these identity trends affect your design process? Are these trends accurate to current trends? Have you noticed other trends which you feel should be mentioned?
It's no coincidence that the best and most popular apps frequently have striking and memorable icons. It might seem like just a colorful tile, but a good icon is critical piece of an app's design that has a huge effect on how people think about and interact with what's inside. Here's a rare look at how Apple thinks icons should look, straight from one of the company's design gurus.
With the year more than one-half complete, it’s time to look at web design trends for 2013. Some trends have survived since 2012 and others are just becoming popular. Whether you’re a professional web designer or a small business owner, keeping up with these trends can help your site, or your clients’ sites.
Website design is about to change about as much as something can change and email marketing is already half way there. Email marketers such as @Bronto move massive amounts of information in real time.
Welcome to the future.
The future of web design will happen in real time, be logic based and require a mountain of creative controlled by predictive analytics in real time. If that sounds like email marketers are sitting pretty you win a cookie.
Bronto became Cure Cancer Starter's (http://www.curecancerstarter.org) email marketing and marketing automation partner today (http://sco.lt/55jx1F ). Bronto joins Atlantic BT and the Story of Cancer Foundation (501c3) in the Tech Cures Cancer Movement.
This deck is about where web design is headed (at light speed) and why thinking like an email-marketer is a good idea.

Some Truly Great Examples of HTML5 Websites
Welcome to the world of constant change and learning. A world where you are constantly and frantically behind change and knowledge quickly becomes out of date. Never has this been so true when it comes to the continuous change and evolution to web design and development. With the different many access points available to the consumer, so must our approach and standards change to accommodate the appetite of the consumer. As fast as our technology changes, so must our skills set and knowledge.
Now, we’ve reached a point where we must also take our design to another level. The future and now is all about html5 whether you’re a mobile web developer, an enterprise with specific business needs, or a serious game dev looking to explore the web as a new platform.
By combining css with html5 you can create a website that your visitors can truly have a great user experience. Let’s take a look at some websites created in html5 that will give you great ideas and inspiration on your next project.
Here is the list of some truly great examples of HTML5 websites:
When it comes to design, user experience is one of the key things. According to this infographic, 68% of users leave because of poorly designed websites and 62% of customers base future purchases on past experiences. These stats alone are clear enough that UX (User Experience) isn’t something that can be taken lightly. The life and blood of your business might very well depend on this factor alone. Have a look at this infographic to learn more about what User Experience is all about.
