After the dominance of flat colors in web design, we’ve noticed a new web design trend of gradient use beginning to emerge. Gradients are nothing new in web design, but the CSS property of
linear-gradient now allows designers to add vibrant spectrums of color directly to their code, rather than the traditional method of creating a gradient image in Photoshop.
One advantage of the CSS approach is the gradient can be scaled to any size, which makes it great for screen filling gradient backgrounds.
Today’s showcase features 25 examples of these super gradients used as backgrounds, headers, and overlays.
This post showcases 20 cool websites that make use of these full-screen slideshows effects to promote their content.
Looping video backgrounds is one of the fastest growing trends in web design. Ever since designers were given the ability to render video content in HTML5 we’ve seen motion pictures quickly take the place of static images in website headers and backgrounds.

It’s usually best to have the work done by those who have the expertise needed to perform the certain task. Moreover, it is vital to have them collaborate their efforts.
If you are a web designer, you might also be good at coding. However, it’s almost always best to place your project in the hands of an experienced developer. You can also consider leaving the hard work to a software development service when it’s time to do so.

Typography on the web comes in two formats; firstly there’s the classic image replacement technique which allows for beautiful typographic designs, but it lacks the technical wow factor. Then there are true examples of web typography where designers wrangle with browsers to manipulate HTML rendered type in impressive ways, but while browsers and web technologies are continuously improving, this method often lacks in the visual flair that is achieved when designing typography in Photoshop and exporting it as an image. Both techniques result in equally inspiring web designs, so today’s showcase features a huge collection of sites with all kinds of web typography.
