If we take a look at the history of website building, it’s amazing how intertwined it used to be with handwritten code. Designers had no choice but go the length of converting their work into HTML code, a slow and frankly nightmarish process – as non-creative tasks seem downright abhorring to them. Yet help came, in the form of syntax-highlighting or auto-completion tools that would spare some time and energy.
Lately, the web design industry has been undergoing some serious changes. Only a few years ago, the web started to flood with innumerable site builders that offer code-free solutions to making a site. Presently, such services are manifold, and really different from each other. Webydo and visual.ly have joined forces to research the current state of the web design industry. Their results are featured in a lovely infographic, which I think will prove most useful to investigate.

Web design trends have been evolving for a few years, but this year, we are able to recognize the method in the madness. Before this year, each year a few hypes and crazes were formed and everyone jumped in the bandwagon. Web designers, who were worshipping Web 2.0 in 2008, believed in 2012 that minimalism is the greatest thing ever happened to mankind.
Up until last year, there was no pattern among the trends of web design, but this time, there is a pattern! And that pattern is that design is turning from an art form to a science.
Today we are in a position to predict web design trends not only for the new year but for the next five years… or even more. That’s because there’s a pattern now. If we want to stay ahead in the game, all we have to do is understand the pattern of evolution. Let’s locate the zeitgeist together, shall we.

So today we are celebrating the season of love with these couple tattoos.
One of the most important qualities that a successful business must have is having a good customer service. A research was done in Utah State University which showed that the average business receives complaints from only 4% of its dissatisfied customers. The other 96% walk away quietly, without complaining and with the intention of never returning back.
This means if you have received complaints from four customers then chances are there were 96 (!) other customers who too had the same complaint but didn’t bother to approach you.
