Below are 50 (non-ranked) of our favorite web designs from 2013. These sites were chosen based on our appreciation of their design choices, innovation, and because they had that wow factor that made us simply like them.
Some of the best and brightest trends we’ve seen this year 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 Dribbble 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 good are beginning to share a number of these features of cutting-edge web design.
