It is very hard to believe, but 2019 means we’re heading into the final chapter of the decade & the internet has grown and changed a lot in the past 5-10 years. we’ve seen the dominance of mobile, the introduction of AR, VR, AI, AMP, and many other acronyms. All of this new technology has been, where you see and feel these changes is in web design trends.
In recent time website designing trends have pushed towards rampant creativity abandoning grids and traditional stock photos for vibrant illustrations. Other years, technological advancements have led to websites becoming smarter, with machine learning and subtle interactions, and those shifting paradigms have driven design trends (hamburger menus, anyone?). The web design trends in 2019 will see these 2 sides of the coin esthetics & technology come together like never before.
Huge web design trends 2019
1. Serifs on screen
2. Black-and-white palettes
3. Natural, organic shapes
4. Glitch art
6. Chatbots evolve
7. Even more video content
9. Thumb-friendly navigation
1. Natural, organic shapes
Though web pages are typically set up for systematic grids, designers are turning towards natural shapes and smooth lines. Geometric structures such as squares, rectangles, and triangles with their sharp corners do create a sense of stability, but 2019 trends are more concerned with a feeling of accessibility and comfort.
Because organic shapes are naturally imperfect and asymmetrical, they can provide depth to a web design that makes page elements stand out. They are based in nature (think of the curving forms of trees and hills), but free-drawn elements can capture the spontaneity of man-made accidents such as paint splatter. The goal here is for web designs to feel human and alive through the illusion of movement.
Every time you take a small action on an app or website and there is a specific response to it. For example, when you check Facebook, the red icon displaying your message count and when you refresh a Twitter page and hear a beep.
These have been the most common uses of them, but in 2019, web pages will heavily feature their more interactive incarnations. Hover and scrolling animations, chimes, and much more. All in all, this is a way to involve your audience in your website, to subtly transmit information to the users about their actions and usage, and make web pages feel a little smarter.
3. Chatbots evolve
In this article, we’ll primarily focus on the tendencies that we’ve observed in the visual and interaction fields, which are useful to our users in terms of inspiring for their daily projects. However, in our book (also available in a gorgeous digital version $7.95) we have gathered many themes of a social and technological nature, such as social mobility, the sharing economy, voice interfaces, image search, and machine learning with web technologies, etc.
The concept of “Trends” can often be taken as less than complimentary. However, knowing and experimenting with the latest advancements leads to learning new techniques, acquiring more skills and playfully using different styles in a playful way as they appear and evolve.
Chatbots have been up-and-coming for a while now but will finally move into the spotlight in 2019. This is mostly due to the advancements in AI and machine learning, making them more intelligent & efficient.
The new chatbots will be showing up more and more on web pages with higher levels of customization than we’ve seen in past iterations. Bright colors will make them not only more prominent on the page but more inviting.
4. Variable Fonts
Variable Fonts currently doesn’t have enough browser support but should be on our list of skills to learn. Variable Fonts are the evolution of the Open type font specification and one font file can contain multiple variations of the typeface. Using CSS it is possible to access these variations and animate transitions between styles.
5. Machine Learning Through Web Technologies
What do we understand by machine learning, what is a model? How do we start with ML? How is it trained, and how can we implement it? Luckily for us, this year has been full of examples of AI-powered web experiments. Many of them can be used easily in our projects or to prototype other experiments as they are based on JS libraries like TensorFlow.js, it doesn’t require a particularly complex server architecture.
In the internet world simplicity always works , Easily navigation from one page to another can attract visitors landing to your site pages.
