As long as human beings inhabit this planet, graphic design won’t be fading off into the sunset anytime soon. It’s always important to stay true to the creative vision you’ve developed for your brand. It’s equally as important to stay current with design trends. Not necessarily for the purpose of incorporating every trend into your brand, but more-so to keep yourself aware of what’s out there. This way, you stay knowledgeable, and can choose to incorporate what makes the most sense for you and your client base. Something trendy today could look outdated tomorrow, after-all. Here are a few design trends to watch for in 2019.
Animations are a huge trend whose use shows no signs of slowing down. They’re classified as motion graphics, scrolling effects, and background videos, just to name a few. They draw a users attention to your page, and/or to a specific message. Animations make interacting with the apps on your phone more fun, as though you’re connecting with real objects. They make the transitions during the scrolling process more seamless, and thus more user friendly. Animations are, simply put, entertaining.
Use Your Words
According to the dictionary, typography is “the style and appearance of printed matter.” More precisely, it is “the art or procedure of arranging type or processing data and printing from it.” Paying close attention to the size of your fonts, the style, and the spacing between words and lines is important. Visually speaking, you want to create as fluid of a reading process for your users as possible. That can be further enhanced through using specific colors, the size of headings and sub-headings, and so on. Catching a consumers eye can be done with something as simple as how you choose to use your words.
The speed with which your site loads is crucial to its success. Study after study shows that the average time a consumer will wait for a site to load before giving up and moving on is three seconds. You read that correctly. So, sites that are image heavy will not perform with quick speeds. This is where flat designs come in to play. They’re clean, minimalist designs that load quickly, thus rendering them SEO friendly.
