A brand new year sparks new beginnings for many. This accounts for the yearly shifts and changes in every business aspect, including application development, and especially web design. This year, we shall be expecting various groundbreaking creations that will be taking websites to a whole new level.
Let’s take a look at what these are below:
Animated Product Reveals
One factor or method that spices up websites are animations. These hover animations have always been useful for subtle micro-interactions that serve as a key to prolonging the engagement of the visitor towards the website and its elements.
This year, it is highly anticipated that web designers will be utilizing this feature more often. These professionals are expected to transform such simple animations into something bigger, thus turning ordinary page elements into dazzling and eye-catchy product reveal.
During the past year, the 90’s retro theme has taken the web design industry by storm. And surely this year, this trend will still continue to spread the heat and take a spot on the top web design trends for 2023.
One notable reason why the 90s trend will remain on its seat is that applying it on websites would enable easier access. And additionally, it gives the visitors the warm feeling of flicking or reading through records while seeing vinyl and commercial banner marquees.
Sometimes being a little extra is not a bad thing. Especially when it comes to incorporating such trends into websites. Although you may think that this would appear too overwhelming, properly implementing it would catch the visitor’s eyes and feed them with creativity.
Scrapbook aesthetic would include doodle drawings, handwritten lettering, sticker graphics, and cut-and-paste collages. Combining all these elements allow web designers to create a work and feel that embraces the physical and digital aspect of designs.
Immersive 3D Worlds
Fully rendered 3D worlds have been the people’s favorite last year. And for sure, this trend will not cease to exist and will continue to spread its feels to every website. The emergence of this trend was made possible by the continuous development of VR tech.
This trend is commonly useful in terms of one-off campaigns that tend to be more stylistic rather than realistic which makes them a lot more appealing and imaginative for visitors.
In the past few years, many designers have been keeping in mind the idea that less is more. However, since a redundant and never changing idea tend to be buried in the ground, the trend of overstimulation has begun to rise in its tracks.
This trend declares an all-out war and conflict with white space, which leads to customization in almost every web page element. This results in animated backgrounds and foregrounds, oversized typography, hover, click effects, and many more.
