“Don’t judge a book by its cover” is an age-old saying, but nowadays, the cover holds a vital role to attract and trap their readers (isn’t it?). Investing in the making of a bold and impressive cover is a smart choice and that is what a good focus on user interface design is all about.
These UI design trends play a major role in capturing the attention of a user in a better way by simply modifying the image, look, color, etc. After all, the main aim is to give the best experience to our mobile app users.
Let’s check out the latest UI design trends of 2019:
You all must have played Pokemon Go, but ever wondered that what kind of technology it is?
We are familiar with the term Virtual Reality (VR), but now, as the system demands some more advancements, we stepped into the world of Augmented Reality (AR). This simply makes the live view exciting by adding digital elements to it. AR basically provide a composite view to the user by superimposing the digitally generated images to the real view of the smartphone’s cameras. Involvement of this feature helps for creating an interactive environment.
Animation succeeds to draw attention till date. Considering it to be a magnetic element for the users, animations are increasing their level of creativity day by day, for instance, upgrading to micro-animations. Micro-animation is an innovative tool which includes content as well to make the users understand the app/website in a better manner, and hence, helps them in bringing positive traffic growth. This kind of animation shows motion only when hovered on, but marks itself absent when there is a presence of a touchscreen.
Having knowledge of color theory is important. Working with vibrant colors and gradients intelligently will give good returns. An impactful image includes stunning graphics and designs.
The use of bold colors with a catchy and relatable graphical picture will leave a good impression on the consumers. These bold and vibrant colors help in increasing the readability factor which will simultaneously help the user in understanding the content in a better way.
UI without the use of buttons:
There are various types of buttons present in UI like Three-Dimensional Button, Skeuomorphic Button, Flat Design Button, Ghost Button, etc. The evolution hits when these buttons vanish from the User Interface. By vanishing we mean that the usage of buttons will get replaced by other action functions, namely, dragging and dropping.
Mathematicians and scientists often claim symmetry and beauty to be linked, however, philosophers and art historians figured out there is some sterile rigidity about it, which bounds the art to look less beautiful and stunning. As Adorno suggested, asymmetry probably results most effectively in beauty. While asymmetric designs turned out to be a hit in the world of art, the current years and specifically 2019 seem to be prepared to have a fresh take on exploring asymmetric designs in the digital world.
Pointing on the basic, regular symmetry is kind of “outdated” nowadays and asymmetry is more of a trend as users always expect some new and refreshing designs which will act as the eye candy for them. So, this simple twist can surely bring positive changes.
In a nutshell, typography is all about storytelling in a digital way. Engaging a user to your app is a difficult task, but that is where this tool comes to the rescue. The more the user finds it interesting and relatable, the higher will be the success rate. By adopting this, one can achieve the goal of providing an excellent user experience.
After having gone through the above trends, the question is not whether you can capitalize one of these trends or you see any scope of improvement, but the question is can you be the one to not only study one but be Da Vinci to mix-match the trends and end up inventing or painting a totally new canvas, a fresh new trend, just like they did with ‘material design’?
