2: Bold Colour Blocks
3: Split screen content
4: Go large
5: Cut the copy
OK so whitespace is not particularly new when it comes to design but it is important to reiterate as those who are new to the design world often struggle with creating the balance between space to reflect and absorb the message and relevant content & visuals to reinforce your brand.
Don't be scared of whitespace but it must be in harmony with the overall aesthetic of your site design.
2: Bold Colour Blocks
Use bold colour to break up your content and help the user navigate their journey on your page. This can be solid colour blocks or created through content led images. Keep within a colour palette that represents your brand and use in conjunction with short text to express several messages in an orderly design with manageable chunks of information.
3: Split Screen
This is a bold trend for 2020 that subverts the traditional rectangle that we have subconsciously tired of. It is only when faced with a striking split screen that we realise the rut that web design had got itself into. This is a great way to present multiple message within an instant of landing. By creating a dual scroll function the page becomes more dynamic and interactive as the content shown is led by the user.
4: Go Large
Large fonts, the images, large icons and pop-up navigation that is only there when you need it is intuitive and impressive regardless of the platform being used. This is about decluttering the jun and focussing the content on what the user is looking for.
5: Cut the Copy
Designing is about providing enough information to create the demand and not providing so much that the user gives up. In 2020 the amount of text on websites will be reduced so that users can cut through the noise. The focus will be on the quality of the text - a clear and on brand message that is supported by rich images & animations.
Minimalism is Modern (or post modern or post post modern...)
So, to sum it all up modern website design is focused on minimalism and clarity. Unnecessary elements, such as too much text, will be removed, as users seek to find what they are looking for at break neck speeds. There will be less graphics and motions, but they will be more significant. Cut through the chaos. The goal is to remove all unnecessary distractions from websites and make browsing easier. The interface will be pared back - less will be more as web design in 2020 gets the mindful treatment!
