I have seen and heard many designers talk about the future of web design and it seems many designers and developers are frustrated with whats currently going on in the web design world. In this article I will give my opinion on where I think web design will be in the near future.
More Content Management Systems Websites, Less HTML
When It comes to designing and developing for the web I have notice that more and more users are turning to CMS’s(Content Management Systems) and less towards HTML/static web pages. I can not remember the last time I’ve coded a HTML website for a client and that was final. With the functionality of CMS’s and the ability to manage everything via the control panel, what’s the need to edit an HTML page via a code editor? Many people use content management systems for the following.
- Blogging – With the tremendous growth of blogging I can see there being over a millions blogs throughout the world in the near future. I mean its 2010 and who doesn’t have a blog? From a designer point of view we will all be running and designing websites for people who want or would like to start a blog.
- CMS – Unlike most people others like their websites to have the functional as a CMS. I can see designers developing more CMS’s for companies/personal projects and the near future.
More Website builders
Less Freelance, more corporate/personal work!
The fact of many people being cheap will cause the rise of freelance work to drop. Many designers will say that freelancing will be around for good but in my opinion the fail is coming very soon. With others countries willing to do work for less many designers will decide to either go get a job at a firm or company or work on personal projects. The Great part about freelancing is being able to be your own boss but the con of freelancing is not having a stable income and having to find work from month to month.
This is just a fourth of my opinion on where I think web design will be in the near future. I’m not sure if I’ll be right or wrong but I know change is coming to the web design community and am not sure if we’re ready. All I can say is time will tell and its just a matter of time before well know. I hope you’ve all enjoyed this article and would like to know your inputs on this topic.
