    Abstract

    This study assesses the impact of the new technologies and challenges (e.g responsive web design, compatibility, frameworks & libraries etc.) emerging from the web every day in terms of web design and development.
    The study has examined the history of the world wide web from the beginning of the internet to the most recent events of 2016 in the digital industry. The lack of creativity limited by new technologies have indicated a change to web design. But also automation, AI and website templates are contributing to the evolution of the world wide web. We conducted indepth case studies of three different web agencies based in the UK. Using data from organised interviews, the findings were analysed and compared to the literature review. They showed that the impact of the new technologies on web design cause more negative side effects to the web design industry than previously assumed through the literature review.
    The paper discussed a lot of different areas in web design and development. It identified and recognised the current situation of web design and offered insights on how new technologies have changed the industry.
