Let's return to the user trip. Following the new standards, corresponding to the behavior of users on the site, it was easy to find that people do not really like to run around the pages and search for information on their own. Therefore, web development trends in 2019
will be based on the principle of speed and convenience.
Landing is not a novelty. Any non-programmer has already managed to glue a site in the design constructor for your business or a classmate. But UX makes us think more carefully about the concept of single-page sites and in a couple of years, probably, we will have just been looking at the animation on the screen and nod to those products that we want to buy.
How many times a day do you take the smartphone in your hands? 20 times or 200? That's why all the digital now tries to fit into the screen of your phone. People stopped using computers outside their working time and the development of web apps took a different form.
Adaptive and scalable web applications, like adaptive sites, are becoming "universal" now. You can access any services that connect to the Internet. The best apps try to work without the Internet, but we have not grown enough for this yet.
Now let's turn our attention to the development of web design. The visual part of web development has also undergone changes. These changes will finally untie the hands of designers.
Illustrations. Many illustrations
If you have been learning web design 5 years ago or less, you should know the rule "the less design, the better." That's true. We already mentioned this in best web design trends in 2020. But we should not discount the slightly forgotten trend of web design - a large number of photos, forms, fonts and, most importantly, illustrations.
The design was combined with painting, fashion photography, cartoon illustrations and absolutely everything that deserves the attention of the user. Graphics are combined with minimalism, focusing only on the image, reducing the amount of text. it will well affect the user's perception.
If you are going to place longread on a page with one solid text and a couple of photos, you can forget about it. Today, longreads are a whole representation of animations, pictures, text and icons.
Longread aims to tell the story in short and simple words. So that the user can scroll the page, clinging all the main points of this information and get it in full. For this, we are making less text and more visualization now.
People have been trying to learn to develop fonts on the computer since the days of Steve Jobs, but it turned out very slowly and uncertainly. When animations, illustrations and adaptability were added, the trends of web design have stopped to neglect typography.
