Some web design trends are mere fads. Some are worthwhile in a wide spectrum of sites. Still others work in some settings and prove useless in others. Distinguish them with this question: Does this particular trend enhance the usability of my particular website?

We strive for user engagement, which matters more than the beauty of the home page. That said, appearance throughout your site shapes the user’s first impression. Users decide within five seconds whether your site represents a credible business and whether or not they will stick around. A design that looks outdated leads users to suspect that the content is outdated. A clean, modern website indicates fresh, relevant content. 

Your site might need a facelift, but be sure that it’s not just skin-deep. Make it serve the user well. Use our infographic to guide you through current web trends.
