The Year 2013 nearly ends. It’s about time to think what new web design trends we’ll have in the year 2014. Here we’ve got 6 main points.
1. Parallax scrolling

Flat design is a key to simplicity and that gives user experience which is the highest priority. Great examples of this technology you can notice in Windows 8 and iPhone (IOS7).
3. Single page websites (like my website)
It’s already a past when people used to have a home, about us, gallery or contact page on separate pages. Today user doesn’t want to spend an additional amount of time to open the second page. That’s a reason why single page websites are working better than separate pages. It’s also a great thing for mobile users. Since the trend of responsive design is so popular, this will be a great thing for web designers world.
4. Various pixels
