Advanced Web Design Frameworks


Add Sparkle To Your Web Design

Over the last few years the web design community has seen real improvement in Javascript frameworks that enable web designers to add exciting features to web sites. The frameworks have enabled web designers to speed up the time it takes to create a web site by incorporating pre built code either in the core framework or through plugins which can be developed by third parties.

Elements of web design such as animation and transition effects that used to be a laborious and time consuming task can be more quickly integrated into web sites. Not only do these frameworks offer a more rapid application development scenario but they use a code base that has been tested and i virtually bug free. Less headaches all round.

At Why Digital Media we are always researching web design practices, tools, methods and frameworks so that we have advanced web sites that function properly, are bug free and allow us to be the best web design agency. Below is a list of the five best web design Javscript frameworks that we think are available.
