5 Web Design Trends to Know About in 2019

Since the start of this decade, web design has evolved dramatically. For instance, mobile is now at the forefront of most designers’ minds. If you want to be ahead of the pack, when it comes to making sure your web design is fresh and impressive, you need to ensure that you are aware of the latest techniques and that you keep a close eye on the latest web design trends.

You can take care of your awareness by making the most of training opportunities and online information; learn more here. From a web design trends point of view, here are five that you need to know about in 2019.

Serif as well as sans serif

It's true that it's usual to make use of serifs for print and stick to sans serif for online purposes. This is because serif fonts have a flourish which can make them difficult to read online. This is still the case for longer pieces of online writing, but many designers are moving away from the rule when it comes to emphasising certain parts of a website. For instance, there is a trend to use serif for some callouts and headers. The decorative aspect of serif fonts makes them ideal to use for this purpose.

The beauty of black and white

The appearance of a black and white web-page can be impressively striking. Bright colours are removed from the picture, leaving the bold shapes and images to stand out. You can add to the effectiveness of this trend for using black and white by adding one small dash of colour, to highlight a certain aspect of a web page.

When a glitch is not a glitch

Back in the days when online technology was still establishing itself, glitches were commonplace. They can still happen on occasion, when pages do not behave in the way we want them to. However, some glitch like design elements are there on purpose. The glitch art trend has been around for a couple of years now, and it continues to be popular. It helps to bring a retro and unusual feel to a website. Using glitch art is a great way of highlighting certain aspects of a website.

Video is still king

It's nothing new to use video content to optimise a website, but the trend is growing even faster in 2019. As businesses compete to create content that is engaging, shareable and helps them to feature highly in search results, so the use of well-structured video content is vital.

The rule of thumb

The thumb is literally starting to rule more and more, when it comes to mobile browsing. As we learn more about the way people hold a smartphone when they browse online content, so the trend is to ensure that web content is friendly to the movement of the thumb, making it easier to navigate online content when using a mobile device.

These five web design trends are helping to shape the industry of web design in 2019 and seem set to continue to be influential into the future.
