Over the past 2-3 years, I’ve noticed small and large business website design drastically shift from Flash to Social Media friendly CMS systems (e.g. WordPress), which is a widespread trend that’s taking over.
Before, everyone wanted the flashiest, most intriguing site regardless of functionality. Today, website design is all about Social Media and SEO — finding the most fluid, effective way to engage visitors on a social level. When Abode Flex launched sometime back, I have to admit we were inspired to continue working in Flash, though such hasn’t happened.
Our company used to receive 10-15 calls per week for Flash website design, but this has dwindled down to 1-2 per month. On the flip side, a couple years of ago we would receive hardly any requests for blog and CMS website development, and now we’re getting anywhere from 10-15 calls per week, namely for WordPress. It seems as if Flash and WordPress have switched places.
Have any other website designers/companies experienced the above-mentioned transition? I’m curious to hear your thoughts.
