by Ardit Cela
Predicting the future of the web industry is quite tricky; if you get it right, you will get credit for being an innovator. If you miss the mark (which is more common than you think), however, you might get thrown the proverbial ‘I told you so’ at your face. That’s what risk taking is all about. As the saying goes “nothing ventured, nothing gained”. The world of web design is in constant change. Some trends come and go, while others have been a mainstay over the past couple of years. Below are the top 5 trends in web design for 2019.
Inventive bold typography
What’s the first thing people notice when they look at your website? It’s the layout of your web page. It is as important as the content displayed on your website. What will catch the visitor’s attention? It’s the layout, the overall feel of the page. One of the best ways to keep visitors hooked on your web page is by using a bold typography. Choose a bold font for the content of your website, and don’t be afraid to experiment until you get it right. More and more companies are using bold typography to improve their brand’s image and reputation.
Dynamic video background
Maybe this is not a new trend per se, but putting a dynamic video background on your website is one of the best ways of catching people’s attention. Unlike text or images, videos tend to be more informative and visually appealing. If you need just one reason to build a dynamic video background, just look at YouTube. People just love watching videos, be it on YouTube or on your website. Granted, the dynamic video background on your web page will be short and to-the-point. Videos can help you attract more visitors, converting them eventually into customers .
Personalized illustration design
