Key Design Trends for Joomla & VirtueMart Websites
Mobile Responsive SitesThis has been a trend over the last few years and ranks high on the list. Mobile traffic accounts for more than 50% share in all major markets in the world and you would lose out on that. An average user spends more time on his/her smartphone or tablet as compared to desktop these days. Whether it’s your corporate site or online store, you need to make sure it is mobile optimized. The site navigation and other features should be developed keeping the ease of access for mobile users in mind.
Inspiring TypographyStill used to the old Serif and Sans Serif fonts? It’s finally time to bid goodbye to these fonts as they have become a passé. In the last few years there has been an explosion of new fonts that are both inspiring and add to the design quotient of your site. Use of bigger and larger fonts is getting popular as this tends to impact a user’s mind. You can join this new revolution.
Dynamic Web PagesYou want to offer your users or customers an engaging and interactive experience. Dynamic web pages are a trend this season. Combined with animation like features, this new trend will guide the users to the different sections of the site, thus improving the chances of conversion. From sliders to mouse hovering effects, the possibilities with dynamic web pages are immense.
Minimalistic DesignIf you are a niche online store with few product offerings, minimalistic approach would prove to be your success mantra. Why use the distractive elements, when you need none at all. When your potential customer want to buy products, let them complete their purchases. Don’t include unnecessary banners, slide shows and fancy graphics that makes them abandon the cart. Minimalistic Joomla design is fast gaining popularity thanks to its no nonsense approach.
White SpacesWhile for some this may sound similar to minimalistic design it is different. By using large blocks of white spaces (can be other colors too) or ‘negative spaces’ you can differentiate the key elements of the site. This immediately highlights the important elements of the site and makes them stand out. Having large white spaces also makes your website or online store more accessible to the mobile users.
