Website trends: vertical split layouts

By Ramon June 5, 2015 • 2 minutes to read

We are living in a world that’s driven by technology, and a part of this world is the World Wide Web with its diverse set of websites that enables us to read about everything that’s going on in the world, and beyond. Web development has become one of the most popular occupations in the 21st century. Most businesses rely on having a good online presence where they can wow their clients with their appearance and potentially getting the user to use their services. In order for these businesses to have a good looking website they will need the help of a skilled, fast typing, coffee drinking, logical thinking, web developer.


Just like the fashion industry, websites have trends too, and believe it or not, it’s changing more often than Apple releases a new iPhone. Luckily new trends don’t mean that the older trends get out dated, or at least not for a while.

Today I’ll be viewing the vertical split layouts trend.


This is actually starting to divide websites. No, literally; the vertical split layout divides your content into 2 halves. Normally these 2 halves are contrasting with light and dark and there is different content linked to either side. So you, as the user, can actually choose what information you want to view according to your preferences.

The vertical split layout make users interact more with the website and making them think before they click, which is a very good thing. If you don’t like the content on the one side you can always go back and just follow the white rabbit to the other hole, taking you to unique, unexplored, parts of the website which will surely satisfy your content needs.

Here at MO Agency we thrive at finding new trends that will give our clients’ websites the edge they need to make them look, feel, and smell (yes, that’s how good we are), superb. Vertical split layouts are definitely something we would recommend implementing on your website. If you would like to find out more, contact us today!
