Ghost buttons are new favorite web element. Ghost buttons are minimal, attractive, and more often than not, they incorporate a very subtle hover animation. These buttons are enough to make any designer swoon. Although you may find buttons on a wide variety of websites, they aren’t appreciating for all sites.

Therefore, a company in 2015 needs a content strategy to publish quality content on the company website or the company blog.
The many of website design trends in 2014 will continue to up ante in 2015, but there are some new ones as well.
