Go Big
Going big seems to be the single most important principle of web design today. Yet for many people, it’s hardly acceptable that the homepage consists of just a few words overlaid on an image or a video. Sometimes, even the navigation is removed or hidden as a small icon. Two flavors of this web design trend can be labeled as Cinematic and Book Cover. The first has been inspired by movies and TV ads, while the second enhances the classic concept of printed book and catalog covers.

You’ll be able to give users maximum impact as soon as they land on your site and it’s easier to code, so it works well on mobiles and desktop computer monitors. Full screen image came into vogue last year, but with growing access to high quality images and speedier technology, we’re seeing websites take these Book Cover layouts to the next level. The Cinematic trend relies on full screen video with a few words and/or elements overlaid on top of it. The trend is picking up fast. Last year PayPal updated its home page with a full screen video background. A move that has helped bring this concept into the mainstream.
