EMBRACING THE LATEST WEB TREND: CARD-BASED DESIGN
There are always new webdesign trends gaining momentum. Who could forget parallax scrolling from a few years ago, which is still popular today? As of late, long-scrolling pages are getting more attention from site visitors. One trend that’s not gotten as much recognition as many others, and has been around for a little while already, is card-based design. The most popular website that showcases this design trend is Pinterest, but there are also other sites that are increasingly using this design approach, and with good reason. When visitors browse a site that uses this design technique, they immediately notice the cleanness and well-organized planning behind such a simple-yet-elegant approach to design. There’s a slew of benefits to using card-based design on your own site. A GRID APPROACH TO IA When you look at any card-based design, it’s impossible not to also see a grid-based design peeking through. That’s because every edge of a card is really the edge of various grids in a bigger, well-organized system that promotes great consistency and harmony in the way the site’s presented. This in turn significantly helps the information architecture of your site. Information architecture is the intelligent order and flow in which your visitors absorb site information, ideally in keeping with the goal of each page and the overall site.
