In order to be a great web designer and keep up with the growing competition  it is necessary to follow trends of web design. But sometimes designers overthink or overlook some of the most important details, especially for usability.
Here are some web design trends that you must avoid when creating a website : 

1. Use of Unclear fonts or Small text



  • Strains readers’ eyes
  • Visitors are more likely to click away than read small text
  • Unclear text can not be read by users properly.

Solution: Increase your fonts size and use clear fonts that makes on-screen reading comfortable.

2. Clever, but unclear navigation

  • Visitors will become confused
  • Visitors will click away when the can’t immediately figure out how to navigate

Solution: Use standard, consistent navigation. Because visitors are already familiar with these schemes, they can easily work their way through your Web pages.

3. Floating Elements

 Problems : 

  • People who have small screens can’t fully see the content available.
  • It’s obnoxious.
  • Design-wise, they don’t look good at all.

Solution :  Don't make use of floating elements.

4. Unnecessary reflections below objects



  • Distracting
  • Overused

Solution: Use reflections only where they fit logically into the design. For example, if you have an image of water or a wet surface, a reflection would make sense. Avoid them on regular Web pages. If you want to create a sense of depth, try using a shadow instead.

5. Blinking images

  • Distracting
  • Unprofessional

Solution: Find a new way to add emphasis to an important element or idea. There are many ways to do this. You can redesign your page to give the most important elements the largest space, use contrasting color or elements to draw a visitor’s attention to the most important parts of the page.

Remember, designing is all about making people comfortable and to help them use your website with great ease, not to make them feel frustrated.
