2018 has started with trends predicted by the experts have also started shaping up. Bearing this in mind, we are here with a list of top trends that are going to dominate throughout the year. Let us have a look at what those trends are going to be –

  1. Immersive Interactivity

To put it in simple words, full-screen website images are going to make their comeback. Like the old saying goes “A picture is worth a thousand words”, ask any designer and he would tell you that it is a lot more than that.

How is this going to shape up things for the future only time will tell, but as far as the changing trends are concerned, this is going to be a major one. The simple reason behind this trend is that UI has become more about the clear presentation of information more than anything else. Hence bigger images, clearly signifying what the business is trying to offer is going to make it work in the future!

  1. Bold Typography

Moving from pictures to content, traditional fonts bore people – it’s as simple as this!

You need to use the power of content by blending it with the design. The best way to do it is by using bold fonts in the design. As already stated, interests of the audience have evolved. Having a team of leading mobile application developers India we have mastered the journey of being satisfied with things that look ordinary to getting enticed towards something that’s unique and creative. And, so has the UI aspect of it as well.

Therefore, as a designer you need to invest in bold and out-of-the-box typography rather than sticking to old-school.

  1. Vivid Colors  

Colors reflect the personality and vivacity of a brand. Although playing with bold colors is something that is considered risky in the field of designing, but the future lies in going beyond the ordinary here as well.

There are plenty of studies and customer behavior analysis that predict using bold colors in the designing to enhance the appeal of your website. If you have been sticking the simple tried and tested formula of regular colors, and staying away from using Bold and Vivacious colors, you need to adapt yourself quite quickly towards this change.

  1. Grid Concept

With the launch of iPhone X, Apple made a revolutionary change in the mobile industry. This change is slow, but surely taking over the designing industry as well. If you are still unsure about what we are talking here, we are talking about Grid Layout.

Consistent, more balanced, and ordered – grid layout leaves a feeling of familiarity wherever it is used. And, this paves way for a more engaging user experience. As we have said it countless time that future lies in making the user experience more immersive and expressive, it is self-understood that grid technology is going to become an important element of UI designing as well.

  1. The Video Element

One of the biggest, and the most powerful trends that are going to dominate not just 2018, but the near future as well, has to be videos. As one of the leading mobile app development company India, we have experienced Many big players are already requesting the use of the power of video to entice the customers to their website. And, it won’t be surprising to see more businesses joining this bandwagon considering the rise of popularity in video marketing.

Therefore, as a UI professional you need to add videos to your repertoire in order to grow and evolve with the changing trends in the industry.

This sums up the list of top trends that are going to grow this year. If you are related to this field, and have been looking for ways to up the ante and improve your UI designing skills, it is time to incorporate all these trends in what you do.

And, be sure to create an impact on the users with not just design skills, but also with the fact that you are following the latest trends in the industry!
