Some of the best and brightest trends we’ve seen this year (2012) in web design include responsive web design, single page, the spread of custom fonts and bigger usage of HTML5 & CSS3. Every site is different, but most websites out live on the web are well built and are beginning to share a number of these features of cutting edge web design.
