Web Design trends continue to change every year. 2020 will not be an exception. Web Design has changed a lot over the years focusing more on UX. With new frameworks, Web Design has become easier and more flexible. Designing websites has never been easier with pre-built layouts and drag and drop builders.
Here are the top 5 Web Design trends that will likely gain traction in 2020.
#1. Engaging Custom Homepages
More and more websites are adopting a custom homepage. Blog designs have also evolved rapidly over the few years. When I first started blogging in 2011, blogs used to have simple designs with latest posts on their homepage. Now most blogs have a customized homepage with services/products that they have to offer. This not only creates a good impression on the visitors but also engages the reader to subscribe/buy their services/products. In 2020, this trend will only increase.
Here’s an example from 99Designs.
#2. Pre-built Layouts
Most templates and themes nowadays come with pre-built layouts thus making it easier for website owners to configure their website. For example, Elegant Themes provides multiple layout packs with their Divi theme. Theme providers have also started to incorporate multiple genre in their themes, so it suits all kinds of websites.
With pre-built layouts, website design now takes minutes.
#3. Front End Drag And Drop Builder
Divi by Elegant Themes comes with an inbuilt drag & drop builder and has rapidly evolved over the years. You can do a lot more with it’s drag and drop builders than what was possible when it was first launched few years ago. Best part is you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on web designers. You can buy the theme and build your website the way you want.
Here’s an example from Divi Builder.
#4. Material Design
Material Design is a design language which was launched by Google in 2014 to improve user experience. The goal was to provide a materialistic view of objects on web pages by using different kinds of shadows and effects. It was first adopted in Android. As of now, most of Google products (web and mobile) run on Material Design.
#5. Dark Themes
Dark Theme has recently become extremely popular. Apple with iOS 13 also launched a dark mode. As per Material Design, Dark themes reduce the luminance emitted by device screens, while still meeting minimum color contrast ratios. They help improve visual ergonomics by reducing eye strain, adjusting brightness to current lighting conditions, and facilitating screen use in dark environments – all while conserving battery power.
