The beginning of the year is a good time for predictions, and one commentator looks at the ongoing experimentation to identify hot web design trends for the next 12 months.

According to Marisa Peacock, writing for cmswire.com, improving the quality and friendliness of websites will be a dominating trend this year resulting in rich interfaces bringing dynamic interactions to individuals beyond the office.

Designers will also free themselves from the limitations of default and other safe fonts and go big for greater visual and marketing effects, she predicts.

Her assessments are echoed by Smashing Magazine which writes, "Designers are trying to blend beautiful typography and arresting visual design to improve the appearance of websites and improve the user experience."

On top of that, growing access to broadband will allow designers to organize and preview video and other media content in a way that can be quickly absorbed with limited mouse clicks.

And cmswire''s own research suggests that multi-column layout works best as it is consistent with the way people scan webpages - by sections rather than in their entirety. As a result, creative layouts will undoubtedly be tried out in an effort to retain visitor''s attention.

In the end, the author concludes, the most outstanding websites will blend effortless content management with a rich interface and arresting visual design.
