TRENDS-ON: Bold Fonts, New Old Fonts, Legible Fonts
Texts, I mean fonts, are the foremost things we throw eyesight on the website when we browse. Can you imagine a website without having any information at all over? Will it convey any information to the visitors, either information or the presence of letters? A big NO. There is nothing that works without letters, texts, or fonts on a website.
Then, you may wonder how it will become a new trend in this coming year since it is important from the beginning. This is where the trend plays in its potential part. The way we manipulate and manifest into our mind becomes a new design and place into a trends list.
No matter how rich is the content, the presentation of the content makes it productive to the readers or visitors. So, the design of fonts and its style modification empathises with the essential part that reaches the visitors’ mind effortlessly. We highlight the core thoughts of our products or services giving bold and innovative fonts using it more attractive to the visitors.
It is not about using different font styles but creating or combining innovation into font styles.
TRENDS-ON: Horizontal scroll, Parallel Scroll, Scrolling Transformation, Effective scrolls, Easy scrolls
The visitors scroll through for more information on a website. The more you give information, the more visitors convinced by your products. Keeping it in mind, adding innovative scrolling effects to users will do a magic effort on the user experience.
I know you are being simple but adept in creativity. You like to break complex things into simple things without losing its nature. Being simple is not enough in a webpage, especially in unfolding your products or services through content. You may have the ability to shorten 100 words ideas into a single word or line. Compressing the details of products or services short won’t help your product clear to the visitor or readers.
You, maybe readers, are not content to provide details in a single page about all details of your services. Also single page content won’t help your business grow higher. You define, distinguish, divide the importance of products worth projecting them aptly online. You would like to deliver a special nature of the product in a different section. It has to be placed as well organized.
Make the scrolling transformation subtly interacting with visitors. So keep the scrolling effects embracing visitors’ minds, not too slow or disturbing. Scrolling transformation can be designed either right to left sides or top to bottom sides. Also, creativity can play it as a half-page scrolling through a website. One side is projecting the headings or the banner images while to the other side the content will be projected as we scroll through.
TRENDS-ON: Dark Mode, Dull Colors, Plain Background, Pleasant colours
Do you know? Dark and Light themes are the most focused area in web designs nowadays. That black and white are coming back vigorously to change the digital transformation into a more realistic way. It is also good for your vision and website. Scientifically no wonder, black reduces the contrast colours effect and protects eyes from high RBG. Dark and Light themes are dominating most of the familiar websites in the digital world.
Most of the websites prefer using dark and light themes alternatively than smearing a website with contrasting and confusing colours on it. It is spreading all over the online platforms. The effects on the websites of using dark and light themes will be phenomenal in the upcoming days.
Besides, the dull colours are re-emerging from using it as a gradient background on a webpage.
We are not talking about contrast colours of mostly used bright colours but most pleasant colours that are not preferred before. Notice that the colours should match your product.
In 2021, simplicity works better than brushing bright colours on a website.
TRENDS-ON: Multimedia, Media Content

It completely observes the curiosity of online visitors. The contents can be played as a background animation. It attracts the curiosity that humans are interested to find out what is happening behind the main product.
Adding relevant media content and control systems to manage the playback option will rule over 2021, predominantly. It will carry over the quality content quickly to the visitors effortlessly.
Illustrations & Animations
TRENDS-ON: Custom cursors, Geometric designs, Cartoons, Online Drawings, Icons, Flipping elements, etc.
Illustrations and Animations are created out of creativity. We create outstanding animations out of curiosity. We create unusual designs to rule over the familiar platforms professionally.
This trend will dominate 2021 using illustration and animations to produce a magical user experience over a website. Illustrations give a fresh experience than just adding an image as custom. Using illustrations present your brand clearly to visitors. You can have the affluent tools to create illustration and enhance the brand’s visibility.
You, significantly, illustrate the iconic features of products or services quality rightly. Icons convey the outstanding quality of creativity of the designers. Because it completely represents the dedicated version of it.
Minor changes make an impact on a website if the animations will work out in 2021, right ahead. More likely, custom cursors, cards scrolling, flipping cards, and your brain.
Realistic and Uniform Elements
TRENDS-ON: 3D, Uniform structure
We see technology and time are changing at the same pace of becoming new after every second. So we have to cope-up with what changes we can make to set a trend. A website included with 3D elements will stand out in a new outperforming stage. Which sweeps out that using 3D elements can give breathtaking results in a website.
It makes a bigger impression on all over user experience through a webpage. 3D designs bring life to online business.
Using grid view or outlining the designs to differentiate the sections to project the difference in a webpage will dominate in 2021.
TRENDS-ON: Whitespace, Plain Background
Simple space to give a heading more clear and emphasising perfectly in a website. Whitespace gives a spotlight to the content presenting on a page. It gives fresh life to the heading and contents in a simple manner. It reduces the distraction and makes it visually incredible. Use enough whitespace to give certain information.
Minimalism sustains its place in web design trends every year. It is a well-handled trend by web designers and developers. Minimalism web design is focused on creating simple, functional, and magical. It uses only the basic elements of a website such as clean content, perfect shapes, space, and limited colours.
In 2021, most web designs will look for organic elements on their websites. They create brand awareness by taking care of environmental issues related to products or services and showing them in the websites, efficiently. We can see a lot of websites are influenced by environmental factors in 2021.
Codeless and Load-less
TRENDS-ON: Custom web page and Fast loading page.
We will get customizing options in developing websites for users convenience. Users can change the looks and experience of the illusions over the websites as they need. They can play over the animated cartoons or illusion if they are interested or ignore it just wiping it away with a single click on the screen. It will raise the engagement level of a website and keep the visitors lured by the websites’ functionality.
Last but not least, after we create the design we have to reconsider the data we created for a website. It will decide the engaging factor at the beginning and accessibility through the website.
The comprehensive list of web design trends is set up to the trends. It is not concluding any absolute results. It can still be improved as it is just predicting the trends, which has to have experimented ahead. It is a list of go-to options for web design trends.
The key to being successful in web design is to keep up with an ever-changing monster trend. It is a basic element to ensure that you are well qualified and prepared to travel further in the upcoming days, 2021.
P.S: We wanna make you imagine beyond the limit of creativity so that you can craft out of passion. I don’t want you to stick to the examples you see before you design.
We encourage design on your way, not on someone’s way.
