Some of the best and brightest trends we’ve seen this year (2011) in web design include responsive web design, single page scrolling websites, the proliferation of slide shows and sliders, the spread of font replacement and parallax scrolling. Some of these new trends may be passing fads, but others are likely to represent lasting shifts in the world of web design. As websites like Dribble allow web designers to showcase and share ideas, web design is beginning to develop more and more quickly. Every website is different, but most websites that are any good are beginning to share a number of these features of cutting edge web design.
Below are 50 (non-ranked) of our favorite examples of cutting edge and pleasing modern website designs in no particular order. These sites were chosen based on our appreciation of their web design choices, innovation, and because they had that wow factor that made us simply like them.
Hope you enjoy our selection :)
