The main objective of websites is to introducing/promote your business and attract traffic; gain visitors. This visitors can be converted into real customer. So, implementation of new and attractive designs bring a great help in this direction. Here are some of my opinions about web designing nowadays :

Serif Fonts:

Most important features in web page is the navigation. Good navigation will make the visitors become easier in crawling the web page and increase the interest level. Nowadays, we can see a lot of navigation style; hovering, drop-down, pop-up etc.

Using the idea of mix and match with fonts is very interesting interesting. Rotating and modifying different old and new fonts will make the web page stand-up and meaningful. A website with typography is better than a page with photos, which takes a long time to load.
