Web Design Trends: The Year Ahead
Staying abreast of web design trends and understanding the conditions that give rise to them are important practices for anyone in the interactive design and communication fields. Mike Kelly will discuss trends rooted in the present and looking forward to 2012, his presentation will touch on the following topics:
- The rise and impact of “real” fonts
- The influence of CSS3 and HTML5
- The influence of mobile interfaces on web site design
- Simplification, immersion and pre-digestion: Single-page sites, fullscreen images, and infographics
A must-see for anyone working in the field today.
