Using fonts that attract eyeballs and arrest the footfalls is vital to stand out of the competition. With an increase in the typography options available, more designers resort to a designed typography than the normal standard fonts. Some of these might not be web safe fonts though and might affect the legibility, which can be a concern for some marketers. For most others, using fancy fonts is creating attractions among visitors.
Brand Centric VS. SEO Centric
Organizations are shifting their focus from search optimized websites to brand focused sites, centering brand elements and limiting the SEO elements while designing a site. Designers will start focusing on creating attractive web page with immaculate logo and images while the content team will focus more on informative content than stuffing keywords for better rankings.
The first half of 2013 saw some boom in the responsive websites. However, not many marketers have yet moved from the traditional web to responsive web design. Designers will prefer using concepts with capability to render across multiple viewing environments and devices like Tablets, Smartphones and Desktops.

Web sites these days ensure optimal user friendliness and convenience. Many websites today offer horizontal and vertical scrolling for mobile devices. This concept is picking up. Vertical scrolling will offer easy navigation and handiness to users. Users will also be able to scroll menus vertically, just at the finger tips.
