9 UI Design Trends for 2021
UI Design Trends are always changing, according to tech and innovation updates.
But first, get to know what is UX/UI design, so you can understand better what we’ll be talking about.
Ok, let’s talk about what are those user interface design trends for this 2021. Take some notes!
1. Soft shadows and floating images:
One of the things that arrived to stay for a long time are the soft shadows and the floating images, because they show depth in your design elements and make your website look softly in 3D.
This trend can be applied in graphics, texts, images, videos, website designs and more.
It’s made of layers to add elements in top of each other. We recommend applying soft shadows to show depth and perspective, which will add texture and volume to replace classic and flat designs.
2. Bright colors:
Bright colors are a current trend for mobile apps and websites. We can see an example in the new Instagram icon, which is easier to remember and differentiate from other apps by using bright colors.
3. Realistic textures:
This trend will be strong in 2021, since it creates a nice feeling on your digital designs. We recommend creating warm and beautiful images to capture your users’ attention.
In this design, be careful of exaggerations, because you can instead distract or scare your users.
4. Colorful and blurred backgrounds:
It creates a delicate effect, making the user interface easy to watch and beautiful.
This design makes websites and mobile apps look organic, warm and awesome.
5. A mix of pictures + graphics:
This new trend allows you to exploit your creativity and create attractive designs. It can be used in so many ways: to create cute and silly product images, or to add sobriety and elegance to a website.
It’s also a good way to customize your images and add a little bit of personality to your designs.
6. 3D design:
This isn’t brand new, but in 2021 it will be stronger, as well as VR/AR technologies.
This trend makes your website attractive and interesting. 3D design makes the user stay longer on our website, due to the realism in the pictures or graphics.
Is one of the newest trends in user interface design. It’s based on an effect called background blurring, which creates the feeling and look of “through a glass window” in certain elements.
8. Big Typography:
This trend is all about big and sophisticated fonts. Those fonts create a mesmerizing result, catching the user’s attention in a matter of seconds.
This trend applies perfectly to product design, especially for digital media or mobile apps.
This is one of the most popular and loved trends.
Minimalist design makes user interface pleasant to the eye, while being aesthetic, simple, readable and highlights the product or service your brand offers.
AR/VR: 2021 design trend?
Due to the global pandemics, AR (Augmented Reality) had an accelerated growth, because brands needed to be closer to their clients and took advantage of the recent tech developments.
So, this 2021 is expected to see an aggressive growth for both AR and VR (Virtual Reality), since people are trying to find ways to stay together but being physically apart to take care of their health while producing economic growth. This means 2021 will be filled with innovation.
If we talk about the User Interface design future, AR and VR will surely have a big role in this new year. This will allow the user to better understand the product and services designs in a simpler and more precise way.
With these trends, we’re sure your website, mobile or web app will have all it takes to attract new users and improve your sales.
