So, what do you think is going to be the most loved design theme in 2017?

No guesses?

Well, it can be a bit difficult to say what design trends the future has for web designers but we can pretty much tell which design themes still have the chance to lead in 2017.

Without further ado, here are a few design themes that will continue to deliver unique user experiences this upcoming year.

Custom Illustrations

There are many designers that like the idea of using read-made layouts on the web. And why not?

Stock templates and icons are creative and visually alluring and help save your time and money.

But when it comes to standing out with your design, the custom approach becomes kind of a requisite. And therefore, some designers decide to put in extra time and money and go for custom-made illustrations.

Some of the best examples of websites that use illustrated layouts to increase the visual appeal include Babel, Code Slingers, Hunger Crunch, and Aggregift.

Tell Your Story

Visual storytelling is another proven way to create unique website experiences. While telling a story through a website can be an intricate approach, when done right, it can outdo any other kind of visual optimisation and elements and bring in more conversions.

The Museum of Mario, Talent Garden, Lapka, Reverend Danger and Inception Explained to name a few are some examples of the websites that compel large crowds of visitors to convert through their effective storytelling.

Semi-Flat Layout

When the Windows first introduced its Metro style, the flat design instantly become all the rage. However, it turned out later that the popular design style comes with some usability issues and leaves users a bit confused with its unintuitive layout and interface.

In order to fix usability problems, the flat style was morphed into semi-flat design, which has the same simplistic feel but with a more user-friendly interface. Semi-flat improves ease of usability while incorporating much depth and dimension into flat layout.

So, that was a small list of design themes that we think will continue to work in 2017. Furthermore, there might be other design trends of 2016 which designers and firms specialising in website designing in Australia can reply on in the upcoming year.

Keep your research going to work with the best design themes in 2017.
