Does your site need an upgrade? Read on to learn about the top 10 most important web design trends to incorporate in 2019
1. 3D Design
This is truly a new thing and it is all the rage. Maybe you saw a bit of it on our own site and maybe you’ve seen bits of it other places… Having 3D animation is to 2019 what the parallax background was to 2016. The key to remember when incorporating 3D elements while designing your website is subtlety.
2. Organic Motion
With any new web design trend comes a ton of people who overdue it. Hover motion on buttons and images are great elements but the inexperienced designer will get a little too ‘creative’ and mix motion elements that shouldn’t be mixed. All of the motion should move together in a seamless and organic fashion.
3. Thinking ‘Outside The Box’
Many of the web design trends are intimately linked with the tools available to the designer. Older tools would tend to force designs into perfectly square grids but now we’re pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. Layered titles and images as well as ‘multi-images’ are creating a more comfortable and modern aesthetic.
4. Photoshop / Graphic Design Elements
Let me explain… the tools we use to create websites can do a lot of phenomenal things but in order to get that professional touch, you need to create certain designs in photoshop or other external graphic design tools. A few well placed, custom designed elements can go a long way towards making your website standout above the rest.
5. Subtle, Soft, Shadows
Box Shadows are sort of low hanging fruit when it comes to adding depth and contrast to any element on your website. In 2019, subtlety is key when designing your website. Shadows are soft and broad and you barely even notice that they’re there. Kind of like salting your dinner, a little bit makes a huge difference.
6. Creative Typography
2019 is all about unique fonts and clever ways of combining them. No more than 2 main fonts should be used on your website but they can be combined in many ways with different weights (thicknesses) and sizes for a winning design.
