8 Standout Website Design Trends
Engaging Interactives: Clicking, swiping, dragging, 2022 brings in large-scale animations & engaging interactives. Evolving out of just page transitions, interactives create an experience for your visitors and feel more connected to your brand.
Moving Typography: Similar to interactives, typography becomes more than just about content and more about bringing your brand’s voice to life! Used sparingly, typography takes center stage without become gimmicky.
Visible Borders: For years, website designers arranged content & photos using invisible boarders, giving the illusion the information is floating. In 2022, you’ll see layouts with sleek borders and defined layouts.
Scrolling Experiences: Scrolling is the most common animation users experience on a website. Innovations in web design see scrolling as transformative through parallax, animation & more.
Handmade Graphics: Relying on web design tools creates amazing logos, graphics and imagery for your website, but sometimes this can make your brand lack personality. DIY graphics like doodles, analog textures and handwritten logos can bridge the gap between your online website and your real-life brand.
Illustrated Web Design: Illustrated images have a smaller file size & faster load speed than traditional photography. Since Google views page speed as one of its top factors for rankings, web designers have jumped on this popular design trend.
Dark Mode Version: Dark mode and night shift options allow users to view your website easily in low light environments. A toggle feature can be added to each page for visitors to switch between the light and dark versions of different pages. Many web designers believe this could lead to an increase in black & white websites in 2022 & beyond.
Minimalism: Modern minimalism is not only aesthetically pleasing, but gives users a simple, straightforward experience. There is no overuse of colors, flashy graphics or overcrowded navigation to distract users from your end goals: sales, conversions and/or leads.
