Almost-Flat Design

After Windows launched its Metro style, the world of design got floated with flat design. However, this flat design arrived with some traps and it has slowly turned into an almost-flat design to correct some problems of usability.

Designers are in charge of integrating deepness and dimension to the design by using subtle shades, cards and well-thought transitions; this almost-flat design has turned into an excellent alternative along with minimalist style, due to its ease of use. The almost-flat design seems to relieve some problems caused by flat design and we are expecting to see much more of this in 2017.

Slow or Lazy Loading

Slow loading is a commonly used design pattern in programming to vary from the initialization of an object until is actually needed. This pattern is used in sites with content feeding like Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and it can help the efficiency in the functioning of the program if used correctly.

This method helps the immediate visualization of content without having to wait for the whole page to load. In a society where information is constantly being fed in our lives, lazy loading helps simplify the vision of such content in pieces. The loading speed being so important for the rates of conversion  of SEO and of website, it is expected to have a more generalized use of lazy loading in 2017.
