As 2019 is coming to an end, we have carefully summarized the design trends that we can look forward to in the year 2020. We are making an educated guess or forecasting the trends and styles that have become popular in 2020.
The current popular styles will stay for a while. Nothing is going to change overnight, but new exciting forms are being experimented, and they will be the latest highlights.
As you know, design trends continuously change with people’s choices, but never before, there have been so many advances in technologies as in the year 2019. Newer 3d programs like SketchUp are making it easier to create realistic 3d images, which was the luxury of high-end 3d packages. Motion and interactivity is all possible using lightweight software packages that are either free or low costs.
The future holds for us is a fast and user-friendly website, thanks to all the significant web startups. Because big companies have embraced online business more ardently, sites built by them are backed by secure hardware, robust platforms, and a team of highly skilled developers and UI designers. These websites are very user-friendly, smart, and load at the speed of light. I am thus setting the benchmarks for all other websites.
The average customer is fast getting accustomed to fast loading and user-friendly websites, and they tend to lose interest in poorly attempted and latent sites.
Here Are Some Of The Trends That 2020 Holds For Us.
Very Minimalist design
Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP).
3D in Designs
Progressive Web Applications (PWA)
1.Very Minimalist design
We talked about minimalist design before, and we are at it again!. A minimalist design which means less text content or minimum content with bold headings and abstract graphic surrounded by ample white space. This design helps in conveying the message correctly.
In the year 2020, you can look forward to a more minimalistic design with even lesser text and bolder headings.
The primary purpose of any design is to communicate or convey a message. People are adopting the very minimalist design where there are fewer elements and in a lighter colour with a lot of space around it. Then with oversized Heading and Page Titles, the message is clear and instantly communicated.
Images and Icons are oversized and are more creative and unique.
3. Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP).
Mobile users have increased over the past few years. Today more than 65% users are mobile users and they are growing. People use mobiles more often than computers while travelling, dining and during their spare time. All websites have to build for mobile, i-pads, and other smartphone devices.
Accelerated Mobile Pages is a program started and implemented by Google, where AMP pages are created for the corresponding web page. These AMP pages are lightweight HTML pages where the tags are stripped out, and the load time is much faster than the standard HTML page.
How does it work? We have to develop website pages using the stripped-down HTML, AMP JS library, and the Google AMP Cache and renders really fast. The idea is that the page loads more quickly, and people read faster.
4. Abstract Illustration
Animations and illustrations have always charmed people. In 2019, high-quality illustrations have become very popular and are visually appealing. Each illustrator has his distinctive art styles and blends of colours, boldness, and creativity.
5. Motion and Interactivity
Thanks to technological advances, there will be more micro-animation in the content and images. Content blocks will either slide or fade, creating a neat visual effect. More websites will be incorporating full-screen video headers and numerous forms of motion.
7. Neon Effects
8. 3D digital artwork
3D modeling programs were not affordable previously. But that is set to change. If programs like Blender, all website designers can integrate 3d on their website.
