The future of web design seemed a bit bleak at the beginning of the internet. That was because the web design services used to run on dark, disappointing backgrounds, holding no promises whatsoever. Following two decades of baby steps, web design services have become so advanced that the future looks more promising than ever.
Web design services have risen to such heights that it’s impossible to move backward. The path is mostly clear, and the few bumps will only help make web design more appealing.
Writing a post about the future of something as dynamic and rapidly innovative as the web design services is challenging. But if I can match the previous prediction that has matched current breakthroughs and broaden the result to a larger scale, I might be able to provide some reasonable insights.
It’s actually quite easy with the web as it is a never dwindling industry. There will always be changes in the web design services industry, and only the most positive change will prosper.
In general, breakthroughs in technology have a trend of late recognition. We have experienced the same thing with the internet. It was incepted in 1969, the same year a man set his foot on the moon. However, the general public couldn’t set foot on the internet as the “Arpanet”, which was the name of the internet, was only limited to DARPA labs, MIT research, and a limited few other people.
The same thing happened with email and wearable technology. Now, with web design services there is a new thing on the horizon. Well actually it is not new; the concept is old, but the realization of this concept is slowly coming to light.
Context computing might be the future that could completely change the world of web design services. What contextual computing entails is that our technology will understand our needs to such heights that it will integrate itself into our lives.
You might be wondering, “what about the web design services?”. It pains me to say that web design services might be obsolete in the next 20 years. The game will be over, not just for the web designers, but the content writers and a whole bunch of other people involved.
As computation system gets more and more advanced, there will be a time when contextual and conscious computing will become more advanced than ever. And that day is near. When that day comes, web design services will come from the helm of the artificial intelligence.
E.g. some fridges take into account the previous stock of supply, processes this information and makes a judgment. If somethings are missing from the fridge, then the fridge will make placements to the owner. Similarly, some ovens recognize the people putting food into them, the amount or quantity of food, the way the food is placed and the way it is cooked. The next time gives them a new batch, and they will prepare the food themselves.
This is the result of the cumulation of contextual and conscious computing. It might be the future for web service development too.
While we are talking about the future, let’s analyze what’s with us as well. A new web design services called “The Grid” builds the users a website using artificial intelligence. The working of this service is quite impressive. Molly, the artificial intelligence, will alter your design every time you add something and make sure that it is optimized for the intended purpose.
Web design services are becoming more and more customized and commoditized. I think the logical path for this kind of technology is to incorporate the feature that a specific user wants to work with and not only what the owner of the site wants. These kinds of web design services might actually be the next generation technology that could transform the frontiers of the internet.
The domineering trends in the web design services industry are responsive design, single page design, card design and material design. These trends are in response to the way we interact with the contents, i.e., desktop, laptop, mobile phones e.t.c. All of these have one thing in common, and that is the glass screen. What if I tell you that this might actually change?
What if we can integrate the screen into the human body much like the wearable tech. That is what most of the scientists and web design experts say, and I also do agree with.
It is a game-changing idea in the field of web design. Of course, it’s going to take a lot of time, effort, and some failures to achieve that, but when that day comes, the web design services is going to be changed entirely.
Not just the developers working on the WordPress community but WordPress itself must change completely. Being a content writer for WordPress based sites, it’s quite scary to comprehend this fact for me. To think that web designers will be out of business is hard to grasp but on the other hand, improvement in the technological field does intrigue me.
While I contemplate this, it excites me as well. As we move closer to the future, it will be a bumpy ride, but the future will be bright. Don’t get too bumped of being left behind. The web design services and the people working with it are responsible for all the changes we have made until the date, and the future developments shall also bear the qualities like ambition, skill, and imagination of web designers.
The web design services industry might head in either of the two different pathways. It could move in the text rich world of blog-based sites, or it could move to sites that bring more richness to the web.
The web is bursting from the screens of our devices and becoming part of our reality. It might take some time for that to completely materialize but it sure looks inevitable. Web design services has grown more in the past 5 years than it has in the whole history before that.
What does it entail for designers, developers, and writers in the future? Does it mean that they have to be smarter? I presume that is not the situation. I believe there will be smarter tools at disposal for them and plenty of space to work in so that they will be able to design better websites.
