The Next Web posted a really interesting article today covering the Top 8 Responsive Web Design Trends of 2015.  We’ve summarized our favorites in this post.

Captivating storytelling
In 2015 the focus has shifted to hook readers quickly, use visuals to add punch to your message and make it easy to share your content on social.

Hidden menus
People love or hate hamburger menus. Many sites still use them, but time will tell if this design pattern sticks around.

Rethinking advertising
