Get Inspired – Design Trends Which Could Revitalise Your Website
A shiny, new business website is a beautiful thing and allows you to really showcase what you have to offer. Of course, the novelty can wear off over time and it can get to the point where, several years down the track, you’re sick of the same ol’ look.
If you’re feeling less than inspired by your website, never fear! There are some simple design changes which could it a whole new lease on life. When it comes to graphic design for Perth businesses, we’re always on the lookout for inspiration and are here to share some design trends which may spark your interest.
Compatibility with multiple devices
Given the number of devices users have adopted to access the internet, it comes as no surprise that graphic designers need to think beyond the computer and make sure their designs are just as functional across a number of devices. People don’t want clumsy mobile sites – the quality needs to be consistent.
The grid layout is an attractive, user friendly approach to website design and this type of layout will continue to be used more and more. Even if this approach isn’t adopted throughout the whole website, some pages can benefit from this look. The grid layout can also be altered to add more interest through the use of overlapping images.
Clean, minimal typography
There was a time when designers went nuts for interesting fonts and a lot of websites used elaborate, colourful typography. The trend now is now for a pared back, minimal look where simple typography allows the content to tell the story. While big, bold fonts are still often used, the text is still easy to read and is paired with a clean look so users focus on content.
Although text may remain clean and minimal, the use of colour is increasing to add personality to websites and provide interest for visitors. Even if you like your webpages uncluttered, colour can still be integrated into the text, background or graphics as a counterpoint to the clean typography. If bright colours don’t appeal to you, you can also try a muted palette.
Better quality images
Although there has been a move away from boring stock photography for some time, there are an increasing number of websites which are now dedicated to providing unique, high quality photographs for website design. This means that your business can integrate easily accessible, high quality images into your website.

From the first meeting I had with the team at Dilate I was impressed by their professionalism and how personable all the staff were. I worked closely with them for about 4/5 months to build an innovative website that meet all my expectations. The user-friendliness for the customers has seen a decrease in phone bookings [compared to my previous dinosaur website] and the functionality on the backend has reduce my workload tenfold! I finally feel our website reflects my business. I would HIGHLY recommend Dilate Digital to anyone! Huge thanks to Bodie, Trav, Yi-Main and Bipu for everything!20190301Barista School Perth
