Behind us is 2017, which was full of changes in web design concepts.
So let’s start from the last place!
Probably most of you have heard that less is better.
There is something to it, currently, websites are becoming more mature and refined. They are not covered with colourful banners and hard to define graphics as it was a decade ago. Today, the site is designed to facilitate the user to use it through just minimalism.

Nothing more nothing less. I have always been a fan of using this technique on websites. The gradient works well in building the user interface, e.g. all kinds of buttons, animations, transitions. You can also use the gradient when designing the background for the page. In total, the gradient gives unlimited possibilities.

In 2017, as in previous years, 3D graphics were often used on websites. Thanks to the use of WebGL in all browsers and excellent 3d libraries like D3 or Three.JS you can perform amazing animations.

Grid gives the page a logical breakdown. Thanks to the asymmetrical grid, the website receives harmony.

A modern website should give a sense of interactivity. It encourages the user to deeper interaction, allows you to engage in the story that is told through the site.
The site is primarily intended to convey written content, so it is very important that the typography is thought out. This is often the first element a web designer works on when designing a website. The right typography improves the readability of the page, gives it lightness and allows you to remain unforgettable.
Flat design or flat pattern is a graphic design style that eliminates gradient and shadows according to Wikipedia.
With the fact that flat design has returned to web design in a slightly different edition, i.e. gradients and shadows are just used to emphasize the elements of graphics.

I was wondering whether to write here about mobile-first, but about the fact that this is a very important element, probably everyone knows and nobody needs to be convinced.
