      Responsive designs and colors etc, sound good, however, for a web developer, working in Canada, one would also have to cater for the needs of the customer, how his customer wants a website. People in different regions would be having different choices. Like people in Canada my like more sunny things, people in india may like shades. Web development is all about taking care of the needs of customers.

    Looks good article on Latest Web Design Trends in 2014.

    I think things are going towards simplicity, easy to use and navigate, responsive and leaning more towards the flat web design trends. I would like to add after release of latest iOS 7 people started copying the look of the new layout designed by the apple. I think that was the time when this new web design trends started rising in the website development industry.
    Today all the web development companies are designing websites similar pattern.

    I like the flat web design trends, Which is to the point light weight and easy to use for the visitors, after its all about the website visitors.

    Thanks for responding MR.Smith
    Color psychology will helps to gain the attention of the visitors.
    lets take the example of facebook, every one is using Facebook, if Facebook doesn’t use the blue header and white body. than its visitors will be unable to use Facebook for long time.
    Simplicity is the best policy to gain the attention of customers,
    while if the designer use sharp colors then this will bring the stress on the viewer. on the other hand, you should notice that special discounts or any offer will be written on banners in sharp colors. psychologically viewers first receive the words which was written in sharp colors.

    • Smith Backer  August 19, 2014

      Jhon, Website design and its layout are more importance with some good good color combinations. The web designer always mix various colors combination to design a website, this way he can cover all the aspects of the websites.

      Since you quoted Facebook in the above reply , The Facebook layout is simple, and the addition of blue color in the Facebook layout design made it more attractive. But it is popular due to its functionality not because of the color combination.

      Though graphics designers always create and design something which is of high quality attractive and user love to see it.

      So the creativity of a web and graphics designer and its imagination really matters during designing a web page, banner or logo.
