We're only a few months into 2019 but there are already some stark trends in the web design space. I'm going to share a few of the trends I've experienced and noticed (so far) in 2019.

 

Design

Web design is trending in the direction of "minimal", it has been for a while now actually. But I'm getting more and more requests for web design and people are using these exact words:

- Clean

- Minimal

- White Space

Ahh...it's so refreshing to hear people say that! I am so excited about this trend because it means people are being very cognizant of their website. Not only in the design, but also in the content. They're only saying and showing what is necessary, no more clutter, lots of white space, and easy to navigate.

Here's some inspo of sites I recently created:

Mobile Importance

Next on the list is mobile design. While the world hasn't gone fully to mobile and tablets just yet, a huge percentage of people are using their phones to browse the web. This percentage increases every year.

If your website isn't optimized for mobile, you might be in trouble. There are quite a few things that go into mobile optimization to make for a great user experience. I recently wrote a blog post all about mobile optimization on the Wix platform, you can check it out here.

But in general, the term "mobile optimized" means you can easily and clearly view your website from a mobile screen. Meaning, no zooming in or out because the text and elements are too small or too large. Buttons and links also need to be made larger for easy tapping with thumbs.

Icons & Illustrations

There's been a big trend in the use of icons and illustrations on websites. I also talk with a lot of clients who want to use icons on their site. Many of them also have their own custom icons and illustrations created for their brand.
