What the design trends of 2019 are really all about
The web design trends of 2019 are all about connecting with your audience on a very real, personal level. People want to relate to your brand and discover a connection they didn’t know was there, like reconnecting with a long-lost childhood friend. While web technologies are ever evolving, this year, users are interested in taking a step back, embracing that sense of nostalgia, and using the past to fuel the future.
There are a number of ways you can achieve that feeling on your site, but we’ve decided to focus on seven trends that we believe are impactful, beautiful, and truly enhance the user’s experience. (Okay, they’re also lots of fun to create, too!) These trends have been hand-selected by our team of talented in-house web designers, and they’re sharing their secrets to help you create the exact same look!
