We are going through the final chapter of the decade in which internet has seen so many innovations and change of trends. Introduction of AR, AI, VR, AMP and most importantly mobile app oriented websites have seen great days already. Some design trends for websites have made tremendous impact while there are some which have failed to gain the desired popularity. Here we are to let you know about the most promising web design trends which we believe will rock the web design world in 2019.
1. The Black-and-white scheme:
Colour is the most important factor while designing a web page. Vibrant colours surely make a page interesting and it is the wise use of colours that create long lasting impact on the viewer’s mind. Colour factor has to be kept in mind as the primary one as it cultivates the mood of the viewer and at the same time unifies a brand and then guides the users through an interface by the creation of visual landmarks. Keeping the said important things in mind, we believe black-and-white is going to be the rocking colour choice for web design this year. This perfectly contrasting colour combination will create huge impact on viewers by making it easy to concentrate on textures and patterns. A touch of vibrant colours here and there will help to break the monotone of black-and-white scheme and will also make it easy for the designer to highlight the most important parts of the web pages.
2.Natural and organic shapes:
Systemic grids have been typically set up for web page designing. But it is being seen that designers these days are inclined towards natural and organic shapes to make the web pages more attractive. Geometric structures with well-defined edges surely make a page more sensible, but bringing an earthly tone with asymmetrical lines and waves are becoming popular among designers. The organic shapes are able to provide depth to a web page design simply because of their imperfection and asymmetrical nature. Being based on nature these shapes are capable of capturing the spontaneity of carelessly-careful artistic view.
3.The Retro Glitch Art:
We believe the retro glitch art is going to make a huge come-back this year. The distorted and mostly unintentionally created striking images will make sure that certain emotional requirements of the viewers are fulfilled through the web designs. Our assumptions say that the glitch art will increase the feeling of disorientation which modern world is going through these days and at the same time will provide the web site with a distinct and psychedelic look.
4.Macro-interactions on the web pages:
Any sort of interaction facility is the USP of a web site and when it comes to macro-interactions, all we can say is that this design trend is going to be the most useful one in 2019. You must have already seen the notifications (little red lettered numbers) on your Facebook account as soon as you open your page, or the ping sound which you get after refreshing your twitter page. These are the micro-interactions we are talking about and being a user of the mentioned (popular obviously) web pages you already know how much you like them. Web designers are now interested in making more use of these micro-interactions for all types of web sites (and not just the popular social networking sites) so that the target audience of a certain web pages can get engaged with the brand (or company) with ease.
5.The evolution of chatbots:
Chatbots have been changing a lot since its introduction and this year we are sure this niche of web design will see more evolution. They will become more colourful and attractive. Vibrant and fluorescent colours with contrast colour schemes will perhaps hit the favourite mark for the designers.
6.More and more videos:
This trend is the most important to keep in mind as it is the Google policy that is going to make it matter for web pages. It goes without question that videos are always popular as compared to text and recently Google has decided to display mixed search page results where the video content will show above the standard web pages. This is the reason why all professional web designers will ensure inclusion of more videos in their web pages so that the purpose of their clients is rightly served.
7.Minimum design for maximum attraction:
Minimalism has always been the ideal way to attract audience and this is for the ones who care more for aesthetic effect in their web pages. Minimum design (means less colours, patterns and text) in a web page will ensure more white space in the web site and this will in turn enable the user to find out the necessary things easily. It can thus be predicted that minimalism, though an age old concept in web page designing, will continue to remain in trend this year as well.
8.Navigation that is thumb friendly:
This trend is basically the necessity of present time. We have stepped into the era of mobile based sites and browsing through a desktop or laptop device is highly old-fashioned. This implies the web designers have to make the designs in such a way that everything can be easily navigated by the thumb. This will surely need precision in designing abilities, but this is the one thing that designers really need to master this year.
Now, you have gone through some of the trends we believe can rock the web designing world. Hope the professionals will surprise us with more innovative and interesting trends which we can talk about later.
