With the digital world currently overflowing with stimulating information, you should want your website to push the boundaries of the past and be in the best position and standing as possible for the new year. There are many top design trends for 2021, so here are a few that are best to consider to ensure that your website will stand out.
Asymmetric layouts will ensure that your website simply makes sense. This style of layout is the obvious default that the design world never seems to drop, as it gives you a great amount of room to be more dynamic and daring in your design. Visual harmony can be accomplished with an asymmetric design be imagining the weight of each item on your page. By really thinking about your colour choice, movement and size before you arrange your composition; this will allow you to achieve the perfect balance online.
Vector art is another member of the top design trends for 2021 as we are already seeing this embellish many websites in 2020. Vector art delivers a practical solution that allows you to include high quality graphic images to your website, while avoiding the slow loading time traditionally associated with them. The SVG format of these files gives the user the opportunity to scale these visuals according to their individual needs. We are seeing thousands of customisable vector art files becoming available so it’s no doubt that we will see more of these fun and engaging graphics in the near future.
Scroll effects have also come a long way since they emerged in 2011, where we first learned about the effect an interactive riveting scroll effect can have on a website. Now more than ever, the capabilities of the scroll effect have really expanded and this subtle art is giving visitors a smooth and sleek browsing experience. Scrolling includes many interesting features such as transition, interaction and participation which can each be amplified by combining the elements of your website with dynamic scroll effects. Parallax scrolling would arguably be the most popular effect here, as it involves slowing down the background as the user can scroll through a quicker paced foreground. This gives off a very impressive three-dimensional illusion.
While we live in a time of radical change, we have experienced a much more competitive online space so we can expect to see some of these exiting top design trends for 2021.
