The UpriseVSI 2018 Review

We’ve reached the point in the year when we can afford to sit back and reflect on the months that have passed. Although, with so many website design projects on the go, we don’t really have that much time to kick back and relax.

That said, we thought we’d take this opportunity to look back at some of the highlights that 2018 brought our way.

So here’s a quick trip down memory lane, via the medium of the blog.

Trends, trends, trends

We kicked off 2018 as we normally do, with a look at the design trends that we expected to see gracing the web. From animation and typography to a focus on mobile, our crystal ball seemed to be working fine.

CX & UX

With customer and user experience emerging as important elements of digital marketing, you won’t be surprised to learn that they proved to be rich sources of information for our blogs.
