2. Flat design would stay

3. Typography would play a vital role
Having the font right forms the key to a design project. Using the wrong font can make the entire design look wrong. As emphasis is being laid on content to attain better search results, using rich typography is important to add sophistication and style to websites. So, right typography will be one of the key website design trends for 2015.
4. Bigger images would be better
Pictures are an effective medium for expression of ideas online, which is evident from the immense success of Instagram and Pinterest. A great method of using powerful big images, is using text overlay. This can effectively and quickly convey your ideas to users.
For responsive users, it is always easier to digest a picture than squint at text. For mobile users, a big image is worth thousand words. However, remember that content also has equal importance as images, if not more, for SEO as well as informative reasons.
5. More Scrolling would be there
Scrolling sites or parallax websites are quite pleasing aesthetically. By considering the way mobile would be important, it should be noted that it is easier to scroll on a tablet or smartphone, than click and wait for the pages to load. Businesses that would target the mobile users mainly, would have single page scroll, for enabling easier interaction.
These are the web design trends you should follow in the coming year, to design or redesign your website. Your highly skilled team of web designers, combined with your knowledge of the upcoming design trends, would certainly result in a stunning website.
