Web design trends are always shifting. That’s why we want you to always stay updated about the latest trends, so that you can stay on top.
1. Retro Fonts
Retro fonts have recently become popular again, after years of staying dormant. The stylization and artistry of these old-school fonts are helping to reinvent the design potential and appeal of what retro fonts can be.
2. Horizontal scrolling
Although the vertical scroll has been popular for long, the horizontal scroll is making a huge comeback in 2021. Make sure to consider the following when using horizontal scroll features: Don’t force users to navigate through horizontal content; use clear visual cues to indicate where content uses horizontal scroll; be thoughtful about what content would benefit from being displayed in a horizontal scroll.
3. Augmented Reality
Multimedia experiences, especially AR, are becoming more popular. AR enables a super immersive web design experience for users. New technologies like the WebXR API and software made by Wayfair Technologies have opened AR up for almost everybody.
4. Dark Mode
Many web designs have started to leverage dark mode as part of their schemas. Black provides the perfect dark backdrop to make design elements pop from the screen.
Audio is now become an essential feature of web designs in 2021. Offering audio as an integral part of a design removes accessibility barriers for those with visual impairments, and also benefits those who prefer to listen to a large chunk of text on a website.
