Responsive web design is a Must. All websites that will be designed in Edmonton in 2015 and on will be designed responsively.

Emphasis on Typography
Gone are the days of type being squished and illegible online. Websites in 2015 will place strong emphasis on type, big type; not only to display information, but as styled graphic design as well.
Web Graphics and Icons
The reality is that information is more interesting if it is accompanied by imagery. This is where the world of infographics has really emerged. In 2015, expect to continue to see an abundance of web graphics, info-graphics and icons. They work well with flat design and are a fun form of graphic design added on to your Edmonton website.
Big Big Big Images
With computer screens getting bigger, and mobile devices getting bigger, expect to see BIG images on websites, that take up the majority of the space above the fold.
Parallax Web Design
Parallax web design in Edmonton has already emerged as a strong web trend, and it will continue into 2015. Parallax web design is the concept of a layered design. It involves the foreground moving at a faster rate than the background, mimicking a 3D effect as the user scrolls the page.
