Top 5 web design trends 2020

Published: 2020-04-07

In a world where trends are constantly changing, its important to keep yourself updated on what's trending and what's not. 2020 is a year of experimental designs. Developers aren't afraid to try new things and add elements that seems a bit over the top at times.

I have gathered the five trends I believe to be the trends of 2020.

Dark theme

Dark theme is a style that has blossmed the past couple of years. More and more see the benefits with a UI design that is easy for the eyes while still being modern and slick.

Dark theme makes elements pop out more due to the high contrast elements will have when placing them on a dark background.

3D elements

Integrating 3D elements is deffinetly a trend we will see more of during 2020 because of the ever evolving technology that has made it possible for the smallest team of web developers to integrate this feature.

By combining 3D objects in the user experience, visitors will feel immersed and get a whole new experience that otherwise wouldnt be possible.

Illustrations has been a trend for a long time, and for its reasons. It makes a website feel welcoming and easy-going. There's a lot of illustrations design styles, but what I've seen trending is the flat designs.

"Less is more" and "keep it simple stupid" is something I hear from time to time. Those sayings is exactly what minimalism is all about. By only showing the most important, your eyes will automaticle catch the message the website is trying to tell. This is a trend that has been popular for quite some time now, and I don't see an end to it in the near future.

Playing around with typograpy, making it fill the whole screen, distorting it in weird ways, is deffinetly a trend to behold. It's a quite new trend, but in my opinion its here to stay. Its a mix of the minimalistic and illustrative trend, and thats why I think this is a trend we will se a lot more of.
