Top 10 Web Design Trends for 2010

Its always tough to predict the future, and that is all the more true when talking about the web.  The internet continues to evolve so fast and in so many directions,  due in large part to  the various social media tools, making the web accessible to  people who never dreamed being part of it.

Here is a list of design trends that I think will play a large role over the next year, well into 2010.

Typography
This trend started over the past year and will continue.  Designs will trend toward the use of typography an integral part of the overall work rather than a liability.  Web designers will start using larger, more exciting fonts in place of system text. Overall, designers are paying closer attention to typographic details such as leading, line height and choice of font.
