Here are some key trends you should know to keep yourself in the top of the league.

With 2019, the trend of experimentation with navigations is about to continue. Your website homepage is more about sophisticated animations than the layout.

The changes in font size, placement on the page, change in layout is not going to work anymore. Designers need to go beyond boundaries with navigations. They should experiment smartly with the new in style navigations.

2. More White Space

White space is a design tool recommended by most designers. However, there is no standard way in the way white space is used.

2019 is going to witness websites with lots of white space drama, making a statement. In the past, white space was more of space wastage. Now, white space is more about giving space much more than extra.

3. Even More Voice

This year has space for designs with conversational interfaces. Today’s smartphone users demand smart interaction when it comes to designs. They love sites with niche content and smart voice interacting features.

Data visualizations are a great way to make something complex understandable to users. Maps, images, numbers, games, or any such visual format help users understand the content clearly.

8. Hero/Header Areas

Ideally, Hero banners or hero areas feature a large image with some captivating text. However, not much change has been seen in the past years.

We expect more experiments by web designers on hero headers and areas. This can change the perspective of how the traditional hero banners appear on any site’s homepage.

It is more about changing the viewport, content markups, and image width.

9. More Text (Seriously!)

2019 seems to be the year of text. Websites with the stacked headlines and right typography can be an amazing deal to your sites.

Homepages with attractive textual infographics can make room for more visitors. Add valuable text to your sites and make it worth reading.
