Today’s post will be all about web design trends that are popular for 2022. Most of the websites we create are approximately five pages in length. However, on occasion, we will have a request for a one-page website. This is a site that features a single page only. A one-page site has all of the content listed on a single page and the experience is fluid for the visitor to the site.
Because there are disadvantages for business sites to choose a one-page site, most company sites are at least five pages in length. Building a larger website with more pages allows the SEO technician to integrate good SEO techniques. The larger site is also more popular with the search engine bots which scan the site for information.
Mobile-First design builds:
Building mobile-first is a top web design trend for 2022. The mobile-first design strategy is to build three views for all new designs We first develop the mobile view for smartphone devices since most of us use our phones for search and for online shopping. Next, we move on to build the tablet view and the computer view. (desktop view)
Only necessary content is used for the mobile view, making the mobile view more user-friendly. The other two views allow for more content. There is no wasted or bloated content on the mobile view. Less is always best. Bulleted items added to the mobile-first design is a popular design trick. The user quickly sees all services available and less time is needed to search the web.
How minimalism plays a role in design for 2022:
Streamlining the website information by simplifying the interface is what minimalism is all about. The website loads faster and the visitor will pay attention to products and services available quickly. Communication is improved and conversion rates skyrocket to new highs. Minimalism leads to good aesthetics, and a modern futuristic look and appeal. Minimalist design uses fewer graphics and less bloated content. These sites also use less illustrations and stick to just the facts needed to convert users to buyers.
Interactive fonts and larger typography:
Today’s modern web design trends include interactive fonts as well as larger typography. To make a larger impact with font selection this year you’ll notice larger fonts and more distinct typography. It is all about eye-catching features that hold the viewer’s interest. Typography definitely builds brand recognition. Users will pick up on the interface featured on the website and connect that with your unique brand. Great typography helps you to build a strong target audience and will boost your brand forward for the future. The typography you choose for your website should hold the reader’s attention and make your site memorable among the many others in the marketplace.
Introducing Parallax animation:
When we use a “parallax effect” in web design for 2022, we create an illusion of depth as the elements appear to move at different speeds. The special effect makes the user scroll to see all the actions. This brings about an amazing user experience and the user is in full control. The parallax feature works on any page of the website and is activated immediately as the user begins scrolling. As the user scrolls down the page, the background moves at a different speed than the page content. Normally, the parallax feature is used as a background image which stays put as the other content moves. This parallax visual effect has the tendency to keep the viewer’s interest longer, offering us a better chance to convert the visitor to a buyer.
The art deco web design feature:
Art Deco web design trends are sure to be a big hit in 2022 The Art Deco style features modern color palettes, new typefaces, and graphics that are fresh and attractive to online visitors. Oversized type on the landing pages and interactive fonts serve the purpose to boost functionality and user experience. The art Deco style includes artistic movements which were influenced heavily by socio-political conditions. This design style marked the end of the First World War and offered optimism and new birth for the future.
Today this style has survived and gives the viewer an elegant look into the past (learn more about Art Deco design.
