Leading Agency Presents Top Web Design Trends for Nonprofits to Embrace In 2014

Posted: Updated:

Buffalo, NY, USA – May 28, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ –

From generating interest about their cause, and reaching out to potential donors to garnering ample attention on a continued basis, nonprofits have their work cut out for them. Serving their extensive clientele that also comprises nonprofits, professional web design agency SEOWebDesigners.net offers the lowdown on the top web design trends for this niche in 2014.

Minimal and Flat Design to Mobilize Online Communications and Fundraising Campaigns

Complicated layouts and themes are pass. White space is the new black and minimal is the new mantra to make it easy for visitors to quickly scan and understand exactly what a page is all about. Transparent design doesn’t necessarily mean boring; what it must do is revolve around the content and not the other way around.

Striking background images, visuals, slogans and an abbreviated mission statement that perfectly complement larger text with shorter text blocks help convey the intended message while keeping them interested. For websites that have lots of content, fixed page headers that are easy to access from anywhere on a page are back in vogue.

With video production costs coming down, virtually any nonprofit can now upload a professional fundraising video that focuses on generating a personal appeal, explains complicated ideas, or simply tells their story. A compelling clip might be a suitable replacement for too much content. Besides, it also improves the aesthetics of the website.

Nonprofits will also need to incorporate elements of flat design for optimal mobile browsing. Though going mobile is an expensive proposition, this necessary investment will become even more important for online fundraising.
Responsive Web Design (RWD) and Adaptive Web Design (AWD)

Responsive Web Design (RWD) and Adaptive Web Design (AWD)

Regardless of the web-viewing medium, (phone, tablet, PC, TV) nonprofit websites need to be responsive and their content has to be accessible to ensure that they don’t miss out on potential supporters. Responsively designed websites, blogs, and e-newsletters will become the only way for nonprofits to communicate their mission and message clearly and successfully.

Viewing websites in various screen sizes and orientations is possible through RWD and AWD. While the single template RWD is usually easy to implement and offers more templates that fit to screen, AWD demands advanced knowledge of Javascript and CSS to modify websites based on screen size, but the pages load quickly.

Dynamic Websites and Dynamic Data

While garnering user attention is tough, retaining it is tougher and that is why nonprofits that update their websites continuously with new information will not only attract more users, but also enjoy higher placement on the Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs). Adding a blog or news section along with an option to subscribe via RSS is a great way to get returning visitors and keep them involved. These sections also makes it easier for people and the media who want to know more about your organization to access the latest information. This might potentially bring in more traffic and increase site exposure as well due to consistent online visibility.

Static websites are boring and static data such as online infographics are not interesting anymore. Dynamic data is in great demand as it allows user to view, explore, click, and share data. Since it typically combines elements of both text and images, it is also great from an SEO perspective.
