If you’re a web designer, an aspiring web designer or you have a website, then it is important that you keep up with the new web design trends. This is important because these trends indicate the future of web design and if you don’t update your own web properties, then they will become outdated, lose traffic and even SEO rankings. So, without further ado, we’ll look at the top web design trends for 2019.

The first trend is having design elements that overlap each other and are not separate on the page. Previously, each design elements such as buttons, images, headers, menus etc, all had their own individual space on a web page. Now, web designers are combining 2 or more of these elements so that it looks as though they are on top of each other. This is a very effective way to draw interest and attention to a very specific part of your web page. However, this needs to be implemented very carefully to prevent confusion or cluttered web design.

Next, another emerging trend is new typography and pushing past its boundaries. More web designers are experimenting with creating their own fonts and typography that is not only unique but gives brands their own style. This is done by adding, subtracting, magnifying and even minimizing certain letters or words.

Thirdly, many web designers are using more monochromatic colours as oppose to using vibrant colours in their design. Now, more than ever, the web has full access to thousands of colours and shades. However, by only using one colour in your web design, you can make your site stand out from the rest.

The treatment of images is another emerging trend where designers are now putting images in circles, adding them to the background, adding shadows, making parts black and white etc. This is another way to create appealing imagery and keep the users’ interest on the site.

Lastly, in order to create all these effects, page builders have become extremely popular. These include Elementor Pro, Divi, Thrive Architect etc. Page builders are relatively new to the web design landscape and they allow just about anyone to create beautiful and professional web pages that once required a professional web designer to create.

To wrap things up, we have just looked at some of the top web design trends that you should be paying attention to. These changes to the web design world are only the start as many more changes are on their way.
