Web Design Trends in Ireland 2015

Often, your website is the first impression that potential customers will get of your business, so it’s important that it looks professional, easy to read, and attractive.

Design trends are changing quickly and keeping up can be a challenge at the best of times and ever so important which in turn will make a good impression on your potential customers.

Here are some of more popular trends that have been making an appearance:

Responsive Design

With reports that more and more people are choosing to do their online shopping from a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet rather than a PC or laptop, it’s no surprise that many small business owners have ensured that their website has a responsive design.


The ‘minimalist’ style is more prominent. This means fewer visual elements of a higher quality. Solid blocks of vibrant color are also on trend, especially when drawing attention to features.

Video Background Trends

Websites generally are storytelling tools and storytelling can be more effective when visuals and motion are involved so the ideas and emotions can be transferred to the visitor easier. We‚Äôve seen businesses implementing video in their websites.

Mobile First Websites

As the number of people using mobile devices outstripped people on desktop computers in 2014, the focus of designing the website from a mobile point of view first has become increasingly prominent.

With the Google search algorithm update in April of this year, which may penalize a site’s Google ranking that is, not mobile friendly, friendly mobile design should be at the front of any web designer’s priorities.
