Website Designing – Trends And Techniques

Web Designing is becoming one of the main career paths in 2021, especially among

youngsters who prefer to take it as a career. So, we have created a list of new

trends web designers should be aware of.

Even though there is no rule in web design, this list is just for you to get familiar

with peoples' preferences these days, it is still a good practice to understand them

so that you will have no chance of disappointing your clients when they ask for

some trendy website.

Clients nowadays are very clear in what they want like when responsive design

started to form as a trend (in 2014), some clients surprisingly requested a

responsive website, and some designers were unaware of it faced difficulties

satisfying them.

What are Web Designing Trends and Techniques?

Web Designers, in their projects, use some techniques and practices like displaying

the logo in the top left and navigation bar after the header to maintain the User

Experience (UX). But when the designers get creative, there comes new techniques

like flyout navigation menus, full-screen sliders, parallax design, etc. When any of

such techniques become popular among designers, it will be considered a trend.

Latest Web Design Trends

Here are the trends that are widely used by designers and requested by clients this

year, 2021.

We’ve seen many old things become cool again, Retro fonts have experienced this

same flow in their popularity. Retro fonts add a certain timeless look to a design

that can’t be achieved with any other font. In today’s modern retro projects that

translates to a bit of nostalgia in the design where designers are creating graphical

elements that aren’t as good as they can be. This is to maintain the authenticity of

the time represented.

Parallax scroll animations

Parallax scroll effects have been a trend in website design for years, and in 2021 we

hope to see more subtle and creative explorations of what can be accomplished

with parallax.

Horizontal scrolling

Horizontal scroll is having a comeback. We’re seeing more web designers continuing

to experiment with horizontal scroll. Those who do it best break the pattern not for

the sake of being different but in a practical way, like in an image gallery.

3D visuals

The 3D design has come a long way we’ve been seeing high-quality 3D visuals.

Instead of being garish distractions, they’re adding to the overall user experience.

There’s a nice sense of harmony here between all of the design elements. This is a

perfect example of how in more minimalist layouts, 3D can make an even bigger


A focus on grain

Rigid grids and flat blocks of solid color can drain the personality of a web design.

Grainy textures can give them a more natural feel. We see the beauty of graininess

in this website for Studio Gusto.

Gaussian blur

Gaussian blur works so well in providing a swirl of soft focus to images and

gradients. This effect has been around for a while, but designers have been using

this in more prominent spaces in web designs.

There are way more and it’s increasing every day and designers need to keep up

with the trends to satisfy their clients with unbeatable website designs.
