So far, we’ve seen advancements in technology that help connect us better with our users and new styles that are pushing the boundaries. Here are some of the more notable things we can expect to see in web design in 2019.

1. Flat Design

Flat Design is a minimalist design approach that features the use of clean and open space, bright colors, and simple two-dimensional illustrations. This style of design started off as just another trend, but over the years, it’s grown to become the standard for web design.

2. Animated GIFs

Today’s user is in an “instant gratification” mindset when it comes to finding the information they’re looking for. That means we only have a small window of time to capture their attention and provide them with what they’re looking for. This is where animated GIFs really shine.

3. White Space

Using white space to separate the different sections on your pages helps improve readability and makes it easier for users to digest important information.

4.The Use of Organic Shapes

An organic shape is any shape that’s irregular and uneven. In other words, this is a nice way of saying imperfect. They appear more hand-drawn and humanistic. With their unusual appearance, these can be used to grab a user’s attention and add a personable touch to your site. When combined with an illustration or image, they can also really add a nice level of depth to your site, breaking up the monotony of the same circles and squares we’re used to seeing in design.

5. Conversational Bots & Machine Learning

Many companies are seeing the benefits bots can bring to their organization including: Greater convenience by giving users instant responses and filtering them to the appropriate contact based on their issues Improved efficiency by allowing for easier and time-saving transitions between cases.

Personally, I think websites will continue to move toward the clean and practical style of flat design. From a UX point-of-view, we’ll see companies make a push to make their sites accessible for everyone and implementing more conversational bots to give users a quicker response time.
