8 indispensable web design trends to create your website in 2020
The trends in web design are always changing. There are trends that stay a couple of years and evolve. Others fade away quite quickly without leaving any memory behind. Many of the trends we saw in 2019 will possibly be in 2020 and there are others that are becoming popular now.
Let’s take a look at some of the web design trends we’ll see in 2020.
This trend is more of a good practice in terms of web design. Increasingly, consumers are using a mobile phone rather than a desktop or laptop computer. This is why designers and developers are starting to design the mobile version first. This means that instead of designing for computer and then adapting for mobile, it is designed for mobile first and then readjusted for computer versions.
By doing this in this way, websites look like applications and can help with the multi-channel sales approach.
Another trend we have seen growing this year is that of large type. Visually, this type of typography means titles with large letters. This design trend has been growing throughout 2019. In 2020, it will simply continue to expand to more web design designs.
In most cases, this type of typography is used in hero images (in web design this term refers to images that occupy most of a banner) and section titles. This trend goes hand in hand with the typography of paloseco or without auction. It is not very common with script fonts or calligraphy.
The trend of asymmetry has grown a lot this last year. In 2020, we are sure that we will see much more. So much so, that it could become a regular trend. The idea behind asymmetry is that websites will look less “blocky” with fewer straight edges.
The asymmetrical design of websites makes them more interesting to explore. There are different levels of asymmetry in design, from slightly asymmetrical to loud and noisy. The most important thing to remember about asymmetrical design is that it should always be visually balanced.
Background videos have always been difficult to get, due to the fact that they slow down the loading times of the website, among other things. In this respect, however, the loading times have been greatly improved by theme creators and video optimizers. Including videos is now easier than ever. We can even create GIFs for better optimization.
Another trend that we have seen growing throughout the year and that will surely grow in 2020 is the use of vertical colour splitting sections. This trend is used to create two separate sections of information in the same space or simply to separate a section into two colors.
In some cases, vertical division is used throughout a site or only in some sections. There are many different styles for this trend, so we are confident that it will evolve by 2020.
Micro-animation is a trend that we have seen growing for some years. It looks like in 2020 it’s going to give another push. Micro-animations are used to load designs, backgrounds, decorative elements and navigation.
What we used to see only on exclusive sites is now almost a common trend. When micro animation and illustration come together, incredible things happen.
3D design comes in many forms and media. What we began to see in 2018 and 2019 were elaborate three-dimensional illustrations. The trend has been towards simpler and less eye-catching designs.
Three-dimensional designs are used for text sections, photo galleries, service pages, product photos and much more.
The search by voice has been in fashion for a few years, but this year it has experienced great growth. And next year, it’s expected to grow even more. Web design for voice search seeks to answer the right questions. This trend is a sum of design and SEO.
Don’t forget that a good use of meta descriptions and the images you include, is just as important.
Designing accessible websites is not a trend, but a necessity. At this point, no website should avoid being optimized for improved accessibility. This includes the choice of colours in designs, the optimisation of screen readers as well as the description of images.
If you are a web designer or are in the process, these trends will help you create better projects. And if you don’t want to focus on trends but follow your own style and criteria, knowing them will help you avoid them. The client will have the last word on whether or not he wants to follow a trend
