More than 6 months in 2016, we & # 39; are talking about braving the next phase of web design. What exactly is the "next phase" web design all about? It is all about transcending mere "convenience" as far as the user experience on the web is concerned. If we were talking about the necessity of dynamic websites that time, today we have gone a notch higher to focus on "unique" web experience. If yesterday, it was all about creating layouts, suitable for desktop, mobile and tablet-view, today it & # 39; s time to offer digital audiences richer – more engaging experiences through visual storytelling.
All the stories in websites
Yes, visual storytelling is soon to come into prominence in web design landscape. While it & # 39; s not an entirely new phenomenon (you can come over write-ups focused on the enhancement of narrative techniques on the Web that were written 4-5 years), it certainly does not enjoy the kind of attention that it is today. Visual storytelling is well positioned to lead the pack of web design development in 2017.
Now, the implementation of visual storytelling in web design can turn out to be a daunting prospect, but present you with a few tricks can always do wonders for you. Here are some things that web designers can try out while telling a story with their works.
Storytelling need not necessarily be of complex motifs
Developers are not necessarily subject their organization with heavy images. If you can tell your story in one or two images that you do not need ten or fifteen. However, if you have more than ten photos to weave a story, then do not try to reduce it to 7 or 8 pictures.
Make the audience part of the story
There are several ways to do it. One often discussed ways to "gamify" site. That means you & # 39; Re awards user computer fulfill the mission. They & # 39; Re sites even reward users to fill up the registration form. The Swarm App, for example, rewards you for becoming a "mayor" of a place (where you check in quite a few times).
Another way to make your customers feel like they & # 39; Re characters in the story is by guided questionnaire for users where they can tell you about themselves and you can offer them personal experience based on the information obtained.
know which sites are the best to accommodate Storytelling techniques
Visual storytelling is a way to promote interactive storytelling on the web. There are some sites that just do not enjoy interactive stories. If you & # 39; Re running a website that is primarily accessed to get fast and continuous information, you would not really want to incorporate interactive content in slow user experience. For example, an interactive film will certainly not work well for the news site and it will do for gaming or e-commerce site.
So the next Web Design Company you & # 39; Re recruitment should be well aware of the importance of storytelling as far as interactive user experience is concerned. Do not hire them before asking them about the technology they would agree to make your website visually compelling unit.
