There are always new trends coming and going in web design, and a New Year is always a good time to check out the trends!

So far, we have noticed that web designers are moving back to more grid based designs, with neat areas dedicated to specific functions.  This is good for users as it helps to organise content neatly and make everything easy to read.

We love the current trend for subtle animations making a come back this year.  Little movements such as when you hover over a menu item, or links helps to make the reader notice parts of the site and gives a lovely, whimsical feel to the site.

One thing we will always steer clear of however, is automatic music when you go onto a site – there is nothing NOITHING more annoying than music popping up randomly when you are clicking on a site!
