11 Web design trends
11 Web design trends
Website composition patterns are constantly evolving. Simultaneously, there are some mainstream styles that just won't go away – like the pervasive moderation and vivid delineation of levels we've seen for quite some time.
1. Dark Mode
Designed by Taras Migulko.
Dark mode, then the main pattern in 2021, will become much more popular one year from now. It looks simple, nice, and elegant nowadays. Telegram, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Apple are just a few examples of big brands offering featured topics at their foundations.
2. Human Touch
Designed by Tubik.
Hand-drawn design elements bring emotion and humanity to websites, something deep down in the hearts of users who are bored with technology. In fact, this rebellious trend is almost the opposite of pixel-perfect, so flaunt your rough edges and exposed shapes to show how human and realistic your brand can be.
3. Immersive 3D Elements
Designed by Craftwork.
Volumetric graphics always fascinate people; it's a trend only held back by technology and cost. Until virtual reality becomes more pervasive and cost-effective, hyper-realistic 3D imagery, which often spans the entire screen, is the best way to create an immersive experience on your site. Thanks to advances in web technology and the constant improvement of their games, web designers are increasingly using 3D elements as VR/AR technology is gaining momentum and adding beauty and impact to 3D elements.
4. Subtle Shadows, Layers & Drift Components
Designed by HaloLab.
Subtle shadows and floating components create a pseudo-3D impact and make the plan more layered and interesting. This pattern expects to create depth. It works with images, but also with text and photos, and gives the impression of a smooth design as if the components are sliding on top of each other.
5. Blending Photography With Graphics
Designed by Farzan Faruk.
Using real photos mixed with illustrations or graphics really captures the spirit of the brand. This visual style can influence how people interpret photos – cartoon swirls are better for something more fun, and geometric swirls for something more complex. High-quality photos already look great on their own, but adding cool graphics will really show off your creative talents.
6. Solid Frames In Single Color Space
Designed by HaloLab.
Layouts with full crop releases have long been a trend in web design. Designers now gravitate towards solid structures and play around in various ways using lots of white space (spaces of any color, for that matter) to give their designs more structure and use clean framing, to give designs a sense of stability, solidity, order, and neatness.
7. Light & Neon
Designed by Angelina Kohanova.
Futuristic full colors such as blue, purple, and bright pink give a bright impression on designs for the future. Professionals use bold color combinations to make web designs literally jump off the screen. This trend is especially evident in Duchrome web design. It blends perfectly with other uptrends like extreme minimalism and dark fashion. And luminous colors can really shine.
8. Ultra Minimalistic Navigation
Designed by Rudometkina.
Website content leans more towards video with voice scripts and less text. Over the last few years, navigation has become easier to adapt to very small devices and has less attention span. Very minimalistic navigation eliminates many difficulties in usability.
9. Frosted Glass Effect
Designed by Konolee.
Recent advances in web technology have made it easier to apply frosted glass effects on websites. The appearance of blurred elements behind layers of frosted glass helps add color to the area and allows text or objects to appear in the image and remain legible.
10. Photo Art
Designed by Adhiari.
The main idea is to wow customers and grabs their attention by showing interesting and unrealistic elements. They make potential customers use their imaginations and stay on your website longer. This way, you can increase your average session time and possibly increase your conversion rate.
11. Realistic Textures
Designed by Ekaterine Rogava.
After years of smooth gradients and smooth isometric objects, textures have reappeared. You can make the user reach out and touch the texture by creating outlines and grain. However, try not to overdo it. You may end up diverting visitors' attention to the packaging rather than your brand.
After all, the major web design trends of 2022 look less like designs from sci-fi movies and more like real things we might encounter in our daily lives. It shows how increasingly simple websites are becoming a part of our lives, and the designers of 2022 are bringing them to life. You can also explore our web design facts article for further reading.
