In simple terms,

It is the process of planning the creation of The ability to tell great stories around a digital experience will continue to trend among the best. 

Designing trends?

Here I want to share some interesting trends of designing:

  • Storytelling with scroll-triggered animation

The ability to tell great stories around a digital experience will continue to trend among the best. A great example of this is the apple products landing page.

  • Parallax animation

Parallax is the optical illusion that happens when objects near to the viewer appear to move faster than objects farther away. Although we see this in everyday life—when viewing passing scenery while driving, for instance—the effect on web pages comes across as equal parts real and surreal.

What are the principles of design?

Before move forward in this post as a beginner, you must have to know some basic principles of designing. 

  • Hierarchy

Hierarchy

Hierarchy is an important principle of design that directly relates to how well content can be processed by people using a website. It refers to the importance of elements within a design. The most important elements (or content) should appear to be the most important.

  • Balance and alignment

Never forget that every element you place on a page has a weight. The weight can come from color, size, or texture. Just like you wouldn’t put all your furniture in one corner of a room.

  • Right Contrast

Contrast creates space and difference between elements in your design. Your background needs to be significantly different from the color of your elements so they work harmoniously together and are readable.

  • Repetition

If you limit yourself to two strong typefaces or three strong colors, you’ll soon find you’ll have to repeat some things. That’s ok! even sometimes that’s the best choice available.

  • Space

Space more likely to say white spaces. Many beginning designers feel the need to pack every pixel with some type of “design” and overlook the value of white space. But white space serves many important purposes in a design, foremost being giving elements of the design room to breathe. Negative space can also help highlight specific content or specific parts of a design.

There are other principles as well, but this is enough to get started.

Golden ratio

You can find the Golden Ratio when you divide a line into two parts and the longer part (a) divided by the smaller part (b) is equal to the sum of (a) + (b) divided by (a), which both equal 1.618. This formula can help you when creating shapes, logos, layouts, and more.

Rule of thirds 

The Rule of Thirds is another way to look at the layout of a design (maybe it a web page, a painting, or a photograph). The idea is straightforward; you place a simple grid overlay (divided equally into thirds, both horizontally and vertically) on the space to be used for the design.

Typography design is the art and technique of arranging type. It’s at the center of a designer’s skill set and is about much more than simply making the words legible. The typeface you choose and how it works with your layout, grid, color scheme, and so on will make the difference between a good, bad, and great design.

Hex

A HEX color is expressed as a six-digit combination of numbers and letters defined by its mix of red, green, and blue (RGB). Basically, a HEX color code is a shorthand for its RGB values with a little conversion gymnastics in between. … Simply search, “RGB to HEX” to find one you’re comfortable with.
