2013 Web Development Trends | Raleigh Website Design

Welcome back! In previous post, we discussed 2013 web design trends. We also talked about how valuable keeping up with these trends can be for your business’s website. Allowing TigerHive Creative Group to help you with your Raleigh website design project ensures you’ll stay up-to-date with the latest trends in web technology. Today we will be discussing a few web development trends for 2013.

Web development is a general term, used for the work involved in developing a web site for the Internet. Web development can include web design, web content development, client-side/server-side scripting, web server and network security configuration, and e-commerce development. Web professionals usually refer to the main, non-design, aspects of building web sites, as “web development”. This the writing, markup and coding of the design, itself. Though it’s something users never see, it is there, and extremely powerful.

Web Development and Raleigh Website Design Tips:

1. HTML5 and CSS3: CSS3 lets web developers use animatronics and other artistic elements that look great and hardly uses any file size, which is excellent for page speed. It’s become the new flash element.

Dirigodev.com states, “Box shadows, gradients, and border radius’ are just the tip of the iceberg. 3D is now possible and viable options, and techniques, such as filters, are just around the corner. HTML5 gives developers semantics standards for movies, and more dynamic web support.”

2. Fixed Header Bars and CSS positioning: Fixed property is a great way to fasten a header bar onto your website. As visitors scroll down your page, the fixed header bar will offer constant support for navigation. Trips back to the home page are quick and easy. This trend has been around for a while, but we are now seeing it, full force.

There are so many different ways your website can “keep up with the times”. Web design and development continue to progress whether your site does or not. It can be very difficult, knowing what’s available to use on your site, at just a glance. Sometimes, it takes the help of professionals, like TigerHive Creative Group (a Raleigh website design company). We will sit down with you, discuss your options, and design a website that caters to your needs. Your web design can be upgraded to responsive/mobile while your web development is in line with the things we’ve previously discussed in this post.
