We have been seeing such an important revolution in design style for years. The coming year of 2018 is looking for new creations having remarkable influences on web-design. 

1. Background Cinemagraphs

It can be said that background video is no longer a new design trend anymore, however there is an arising style called Cinemagraphs. This is a kind of an animated GIF which can actually cause the viewer illusion by repeating a minor movement continuously. By taking a series of photographs or a recorded video, you can take advantage of image editing software, and put the photos or video frames into a coherent loop of sequential frames.

2. Gradient Backgrounds

Thanks to the evolution of CSS3 and animations, gradient backgrounds are no longer boring when we gently combine a gradient background with a subtle transition of color. Images can display a chic look on your page by adding a gradient overlay over them, as well as using contrasting color elements.

It can be said that hamburger, one of the standard of mobile design or responsive mode is becoming more popular, but not everyone likes it. There are up to 60 % of websites placed with hamburger menu on the top right of the header, which sometimes gives rise to drawbacks. As a result, mobile friendliness of this responsive menu isn’t completely ultimate. That’s why a new solution named sticky header, at the bottom of the website, which is expected to bring new trending to mobile design.

 

7. Grid layouts

Isometric Grid, a new design style based on CSS Grid, which is created by building skewed grids on the top of others.
