Thinking about a new website for this year? We're here to give you the 411 on what's trending for 2015! For our FIRST Trending Tuesday post, lets take a look at Card-Based design.
Cards are hot in web design these days. In fact, Pinterest, Google, Twitter, and Facebook are all doing it, so it must be worth at least a look!
Cards are packages of interactive information, usually presented in the shape of a rectangle. They can be used in a variety of ways to satisfy specific functions.
Here are the main reasons to introduce cards into your design:
- They’re an exciting alternative to overly gratuitous text.
- Designing for mobile browsers is necessary, and cards are great for responsive design.
- Because of their limited space, cards can’t really say much. But that’s Great! Readers who want more can click to get it.
- Cards enable users to quickly and easily share bursts of content across social, mobile, and email platforms.
