Let’s go through the trends that ruled the web designing this year:
Bright and Vibrant Colors
Monotones and soft colors had taken over for a while but bright and vibrant colors are what users are craving for. Now companies are using bright and bold colors to represent the company brand.
It has always been fundamental in design, but now with a high level of experimentation, expression, etc it has got its right place. It’s not about the type of font used; it’s about the use of words as the main aesthetic. Words have a physical presence in design, it is a structural element around which the rest other components flow.
Video Content Everywhere
Just like colors, the videos also need to be more eye-catching and bolder than ever this year. Find out the right balance so that the written content and videos don’t compete for the user’s attention.
Best videos are those that hook the user in the first few seconds even if the sound is not efficient. Usage of time-lapse or sequences can make your video even better.
One of the most timeless and classic trends is minimalism. Less the elements and content on the website, the less the audience will have to think. Minimalism will continue to rule.
It is such a thing that even a small and simple use of it will definitely elevate your design. People are exploring transitions more and mostly using it makes the specific elements stand out on the page. But always remember that irrespective of the technique of the transition used, your website should remain intuitive and the user should always feel in control. Transitions should not be distracting.
3-D is the Future
In the last few times, 3-D resources have grown rapidly and their future is also bright than ever. This is because of the creation of games for mobile apps etc. Just when you thought the future was flat, came the concept 3D. Designers are looking to add more depth and realism to the graphics to reduce the gap between the digital and physical worlds.
Geometric, Organic Shapes
Nowadays designers are moving towards natural shapes and smooth patterns. Geometric shapes with their sharp edges create a sense of stability like in squares, triangles, etc.
The aim here is to make the webpages such that it gives a sense of human and liveliness through the illusion of movements and stability.
Micro-interactions are used to surprise the user and create an action that is human and attractive. Each time you perform an action on an app or a website, you get a specific response to it, which is a micro-interaction.
Now you know what micro-interactions mean, but this year web pages will feature more advanced versions of these interactions in large numbers. All these are ways to keep your audience engaged and involved to transmit information to the users about the actions and usage.
Mobile browsing has completely taken over desktop browsing, so the design also needs to be thumb-friendly. Users will now see navigation tailored to the thumb as the hamburger menu moved to the bottom of the mobile screens.
Chatbots have been coming and going for a while now but finally, it has come into the limelight this year. This is because of the advancements in machine learning and AI.
The new coming chatbots will be more customized and will be visible more on almost all the webpages.
Bold colors will make them more inviting and prominent.
Trends come and go, some last for decades and some just go in a blink of an eye. What matters at the end is that you stay true with your work and to the brand that you design for.
