Every year in the web development world, experts in web design in Colorado predict, what the market will likely be in the following year. While some of these predictions do not pan out, the majority often does, and becomes the key to a well-designed website. According to experts, here are some of the biggest trends that are likely to dominate the market in 2017.
The Tamagotchi Gesture
As everything becomes increasingly autonomous, anonymous, automated and homogenous, a slow pushback is being experienced from the user. The greater design community has been feeling it, the push to move back to an earlier time. The perfect example of the tamagotchi principle is the era of the mechanical watch, where items had a certain sense of fragility and flourish about them, even sometimes at the expense of proper functionality. Today, this is a trend that is becoming famous in the web design realm, with many major sites experimenting with past versions where everything was simpler and things did not always function as one thought.
Hapnotic feedback is a new term, coined from the combination of haptic and hypnotic. In the recent past, haptic feedback has grown in stature, and the use of touch devices has been further proliferated by the increasingly complex and sophisticated mobile devices in the market. Haptic feedback is widely expected to grow in stature, especially considering the falling prices of electro-active polymer actuators. An interesting result of this is the growing capability of designers, through subtle haptic cues, being able to modify the behaviors of the user. Hapnotic feedback likens this modification to a form of hypnosis. The psychology behind Hapnotic feedback is still new, but it is likely to develop further in the coming year.
Interstitial anxiety refers to the momentary anxiety that normally exists between the time a user executes a command or takes action, like clicking on a button, and the responds, when the page finally loads. During this period, the user is normally left in the dark, and if this anxiety is left unchecked, can lead to a poor user experience especially for a large business website. Designers are increasingly finding ways to take advantage of this transition time, rather than have the worry build up.
