As the season progresses, we web designers began to comprehend and experiment with 2011 trends in the web design world, from the upgrading our designs to the latest technologies to experimenting with layouts and designs.

In the last year, we have seen a number of technologies and trends that are to have great impact and influence on 2011's website design.

One: Is that with the expansion of smartphone technologies, we should be expecting to adapt our website design accordingly to this technology. Our websites to correspond with this technology must be well adapted, look good and usable across smartphones. More and more of us web designers should be expecting to experiment with this form.

Two: With Google responding more regularly and with more accurately to content, it's important that we adapt to these changes. This means still valuing the website content, which can get you optimised online. Creating good and relevant content is the only way these days, with the new changes Google implemented, to get recognition online.

Already this year, we have seen the App unrealistic style used in regular website design. Gap launched their new website, a collection of images and videos combined with an iPad like interface whose movement mimics the movement of touch screen scrolling used on an iPad.
