What could 2015 bring about in web design? We should probably expect to come across more and more type-centric WordPress websites, or large image and video backgrounds, and possibly prepare for the emergence of new techniques related to image optimization for fast loading plus responsive re-sizing.
Only a few years ago, type kits were too out of reach for small-budget projects. And now, they are accessible to every WordPress user. Even further, some themes make a point of providing a number of fonts and typefaces for free. You’ll want to keep an eye out for this type of elite themes, because their offer may stretch well beyond useful type kits.
The Evolution of Web Design, Mirrored by Themes
Responsive websites are no longer an option, but a requirement. It’s not just that we are starting to use responsive WordPress themes to design client websites easier and at greater speed - but the underlying motivation is to focus more on design, and less on coding. Severing ties with web coders as indispensable business partners is a huge step forward. Platforms and themes that generate clean code have made the dream of independent web design come true, and let’s not forget shortcodes, which simplify tasks to the extreme.
Brace yourselves for WP themes with loads of cost-effective integrated functionality.
