“Design is everywhere. From the dress you’re wearing to the smartphone you’re holding, it’s design.” – Samadara Ginige
The change in the design-first approach
2019 the trends will match these requirements more than ever before. They prearrange speed, simple page designs to asymmetrical layouts, and most importantly, a mobile-first approach. This targets the appear primary device for users visiting a website or app.
Among everything, new browser capabilities opened the door for animation. Not just as the motion of elements, but a legit design opportunity. The discipline known as motion design involves a lot of design aspects, but intersects with psychology and biology
Engaging a customer on a deeper level means staying with them every second of the interaction and making every second count. Designers are acquisitive this opportunity before it gets poisoned by blunt marketing.
Motion design also reaches beyond just presentation and gap filling. It is now a fixed part of branding. Still, logos are totems. It’s our imagination and experience that revive them. Why not tap into that imagination and ensure it steers the right way?
Motion speaks better than lighting, positioning, and materials. Motion tells a story. If you can make your logo mark part of your story by putting in some extra thought, I say go for it.
Yeah, but there is a context for everything including animation. What you see as a designer is not what a customer sees as a… customer. If the product we are designing for is an actionable one or is connected to dire scenarios, we can’t afford animations even if they are meaningful. If there is an emotional contradiction, always go neutral.
Typography and storytelling
Next year, the ability to tell great stories around a digital experience will trend among the best.
Typography itself can build a strong visual hierarchy. An extremely crucial element of the UI, it plays a major role in bringing about an excellent user experience.

Gradients and the overlapping effect
A technique likely to become more popular in the near future, the overlapping effect subsists of colors, text or image. Overlaps can create a sense of space and a more structured interface.
Thanks to modern displays with better color reproduction than ever, color gradients made a huge comeback in 2018. Next year will probably bring us many mediums with bold colors and gradients mixed with transparency.
We can see them everywhere: illustrations, UI elements, text. We love gradients because they add reality and depth to the platform, the way we see everything in real life. That probably explains why elements with gradients feel more natural.
AI (Artificial Intelligence)
In the year to come, AI technology will continue towards perfection. This should lead to a smooth and consistent interaction. By 2020, voice will perform an expected 50% of all search engine queries.
And communicating interfaces have also trended hard. AI and machine learning have improved, making smarter. Thus, many websites and apps have started using voice communication for an appreciate the experience.
are becoming progressively common as we speak on all platforms. This includes Google’s auto suggestion, smart home voice user interfaces like Google Home or Amazon’s Alexa, virtual assistants such as Apple’s Siri, and the robots at certain help desks.
Illustration and isometric graphics
As 2019 access, micro-animations are achievable in popularity. They help customers characterize elements on the screen to interact with. After an event takes place, feedback performs an important task in persuading the user that the intended action has actually happened.
Digital or hand-drawn, custom illustrations have played a huge role in 2018. The free forms, unaligned designs, and vast asymmetries, not only helped platforms stand out above the universal, but they also created a friendly and inviting habitat. This, in turn, brought users a better experience.
Additionally, to make these pages stand out, these illustrations often came to life with complex motions
This dynamism makes it easier to capture a user’s attention and explain at a glance what the company or brand has to offer. An enjoyable illustration can give websites or mobile apps their own personality, thus making them more interesting.
