Scrolling elements of site design are a major trend for 2014. So is browsing via mobile. You might not think that those two things should go together - - after all, scrolling on many mobile devices can be slow and clumsy, and the small text size can make scrolling a challenge. However, it seems to be the solution many have found for displaying on a small screen, their site's content in a legible and organized way. With mobile browsers constantly improving and more and more users wanting mobile sites to be memorable (not just usable), you need to embrace this growing trend.

Let's start laying the ground-work for some general rules you should keep in mind

How has website development changed?

With the rise of PHP to the top of the language heap in terms of developer adoption and web usage at-large, it's no surprise that the top three open-source web content management systems in use today are written in PHP, namely--Joomla, Drupal, and WordPress.

Whether you're exploring the whole RGB spectrum or bringing something fresh to black and white, color is one of the most important parts of website design.

Here are some tips on when to go with monochrome and when to let your colorful fantasies play out.

There are many things for web industries to look forward to in the spring. Some of the more popular web design trends include mobile first design, deeply focused landing pages, and putting a face with freelance web development. People are building better sites and writing better blogs, and these trends are at the heart of it all.

Mobile First Design

Yeah, yeah, seems like we've been talking about this ad nauseam, but I recommend that you look at some real stats for a change. Have a look at your analytics to see just how many mobile browsers visit your site these days. This trend has been going on for a few years now, but it's only now getting to the point of overtaking desktop clients - - at least for some sites. This makes responsive design increasingly more important. Please share with us what you find.

The current web design trends take a turn to minimalism, with flat design coming out in the lead. When you strip away many visual elements that create a visual impact, you rely heavily on typography to make your design beautiful. 2014 is shaping up to be an exciting year for typography trends, particularly if you are working with responsive or flat designs for Joomla. Keep an eye out for these popular trends, and consider incorporating them into your own designs if they need a typography face lift.
