Landing pages and single page sites

This is what you won’t ever see in the landing page. Here all the information is given as shortly as possible. The site contains one single page only with all the data needed to invite the customer and draw his attention to offered services and/or goods.
It’s easily navigated and downloads in no time; it can be viewed in a short time period and contains only the needed content.
Since people now tend to use mobile gear to look through the web, most sites just cannot fit into the screen of smartphone. That is why scrollbar is used more and more often.

Interface getting flat

You can see changes in logo of Google, Yandex, Dropbox and more. They get rid or volume, become flat and solid. That’s how it works with sited as well.
Fix your header bar!
Since most sites are now getting scrolled, it’ll be wise to keep the header bar fixed for the comfort of user. An easy navigation is the main key to the heart of your future client, so do not make him of her scroll up and down every moment they are looking for something.
The SIZE of type
If you still have 12 point text on your site, it’s the right time to change it. The resolution of the average mobile screen is increasing rapidly, so now the regular font is no more properly readable. If you don’t have a chance to increase the size of the text without ruining the design and usability, at lease do it with the header and the title. Once the title of the text is read, you gain a good chance for the customer to scroll down the article and enlarge the page for proper reading.
