With the dawn of 2019, it’s time to welcome the latest digital trends and technologies that are more likely to hit big someday. Previous year everything was all about web animations and micro interactions, conversational interfaces and chat bots, design sprints and bespoke illustrations, etc. Gone are the days when an amazing user experience and creative web design was all required to grab the attention of the current and potential customers. Today, the field seems to be so well scoped out. As a result, cohesive experiences, which we predicted a year ago has become a necessity.
Further below I would like to mention some of the most amazing web design trends to watch for in 2019
#1 Rotating Animations
What is an ultimate web design strategy? It is something that makes users keep coming back to your site now and then. But the question is how to do? Try switching the content. I have come across many companies leaving end users curious for more. This means every time they refresh the home page they will see a new and innovative brand video they’ve created for the homepage. In addition to this, you may also find some brands rotate the titles of articles or call-outs as well. Coming up with such ideas can leave users with a unique experience every time they visit.
#2 Non-Traditional Scrolling
I have come across many websites dabbling with a variety of scrolling techniques for unique user experience. Instead of going through a vertical scroll, companies are using horizontal scroll at the top of their website to grab a user’s attention. Moreover, they even show off the talented players they work with and give some fast facts about their business. After the end, users more often are interested in knowing the real you. Throughout 2019, it is expected to see the different forms of non-traditional scrolling designers experiment with.
#3 Interactive Web Designs
User interactivity has gained momentum these years and will continue to grow in future. People are more likely to check out pages of responsive websites that utilize features with user interactivity. The only obstacle is client hesitate to pay for the advanced interactivity. In fact, this year automated development processes are set to appear. Which means this year we can hope to slash the cost for clients especially those who want unique, interactive features on their sites.
#4 UX-Driven Diagonal Lines
Till now you must have observed use of straight, horizontal lines to separate sections on website’s pages. In the present scenario, using diagonal line design is what people are more interested in. Although, it is not only visually intriguing, but it creates a directional purpose for the user’s eyes. To be precise, users automatically follow down the page to point to a call-to-action. Besides, using diagonals in your designs will increase the number of users that scroll through the entire length of the site.
#5 LARGE Attention-Grabbing Titles
Living in this fast paced world is not easy, users seem to have less and least amount of time to spend on websites. Due to which web applications are seen incorporating large, bolded titles and shortened messaging to capture their audiences fast and expedite their time to convert. Combining large font sizes with video can make a bang on impact.
#6 Abstract Shapes Will Get Attention
Do you remember how we use to love abstract designs in our childhood? Well, humans are always attracted to these abstract shapes irrespective of their age. Brands are seen moving towards versatile shapes that give an extra element of intrigue for users. These shapes will keep users intrigued.
#7 Creatively Utilizing Color Branding
As the point relies on, companies are seen moving towards a web design that is branded based on page or product and changes when the user navigates and interacts with the product or pages. This web design subconsciously helps the user navigate through the site and associate which product or service page they’re looking at solely based on visual color cues.
#8 Mood as Interface (MAI)
With the emergence of new technologies, interfaces are becoming increasingly personalized. By using brainwave biometrics, web designers can create customized interfaces that change in accordance with the user’s moods and emotions.
It may quite interest you to know that mood as Interface will find potential applications in the e-commerce industry. Right from color palettes, custom advertisements, and lookbooks, everything will change on the basis of users’ feelings in a particular moment.
Here’s to 2019?
Possibilities are endless, all you have to do is making the right decision at the right time. Remember the actual scenario is far more complicated than you may comprehend.
