Web Design Trends to Look out for in 2020


A new year brings new trends for many different things. Website design trends are always changing, they can be brand new trends or reinventions of previous trends. In this blog we’re letting you know the web design trends that you should look out for in 2020. 


Over the years, the use of virtual assistants has grown. It’s growing popularity means that sites are now using AI conversations to contact the site’s users, these can be useful for helping people navigate around your website. Voice search is also becoming more popular, it seems that it won’t be long until you can actually have a conversation with the website you’re on to navigate around it. 


Patterns on websites are set to make a huge comeback this year, they’re trendy and can be used anywhere. Previously, patterns have covered the whole background of a site, 2020 brings web designers just covering a small area to separate the background of a website page. 

Black & White 

We’re going old school and getting rid of the colour on our websites. This will create a sense of minimalism and elegance. Using black and white has maximum contrast effect due to being at complete opposite sides of the spectrum. 

3D Elements 

2020 will lead to a rise in the use of interactive, 3D designs, to create realism on a website page. Utilising 3D design can lead to your site having higher engagement rates, which is great for you. 

Dark Mode Design

Dark mode became quite popular in 2019, and it’s set to be on the rise for 2020. Users are able to enable the dark mode feature, which can be easier on the eyes and provide a better colour contrast on websites.


As we’ve mentioned earlier, minimalism is on the rise in 2020, even for websites. In 2020, site navigation must be simple, this is to accommodate the growing use of smaller devices to access the internet.
