User Interface (UI) should satisfy the aesthetic needs of the client by improving the visual component of the product. But the trend of 2020 is not the interface of the product itself, but the download speed and methods of transferring content. What other key innovations will bring us a new year in design?
Maximum meaning, minimum minor elements
According to experts, 9 out of 10 web applications will be based on artificial intelligence by 2025. So, in just a couple of years, more than half of user contacts will occur with the help of speech sensors, VR / XR gadgets, computer vision. Already in the new year, the leadership branch will receive services where there will be a minimum of general outline illustrations, and only useful visual content: infographics, diagrams, and reviews.
Erasing the boundaries of electronic space
Fashion trends include design methods, with the help of which the frames between the gadget and the real world is dissolved. Illustrations and interface elements with artificially removed edges become trendy in mobile design. Augmented reality is becoming another trend direction. Google, for example, has already launched a platform for developing software with AR – ARCore. Using such a platform, it is possible to implement applications that respond to the outside world and adapt to lighting, sound background, user movement. After the release of the new virtual headset in 2019, 2020 will be the year of blurring the boundaries in design and functionality.
3-D interfaces are no longer a problem
The launch of 5G Internet opens up new horizons for the design world. Now web resources and applications can safely use animation as the background of the interface and not be afraid of system overload or playback delays. However, 3-D elements will become not just a beautiful wrapper, but also a fully functional user interaction tool. The client will be able to evaluate the product from any angle, and even “touch” the goods with the mouse cursor, conducting a full test drive. This will allow you to more deeply immerse the customer in the product atmosphere, which will increase the desire for purchase.
Dynamic colors come into fashion
An interface that shows the response to user actions by changing the color scheme is the current trend in the UI design of the coming year. Market leaders set a fashionable trend: Dropbox, Facebook, Spotify have already presented users the contextual color scheme of corporate design. Among the possibilities of the innovative approach is the adaptation of the color scheme to the environment or dynamic colors with a predefined chain of changes based on the actions of the client on the other side of the screen.
Minimalism in navigation elements
The largest brands are tipping the market towards increasing user space and reducing navigation elements. The latest iPhone models are already being released without massive “home” buttons, which enable them to enlarge the screen, which means to get more space for more useful information. In the wake of this trend, many popular brands began to squeeze the navigation bar or even hide, preferring to gesture or intuitive controls.
Emphasis on attention
As digital marketers assure (and so far they haven’t any reason not to believe them), the more empty space in the design is, the brighter the emphasis on the main content is. Minimalism in 2020 will receive the highest popularity, and for good reason. Oversized bold typography on a blank background is an indispensable element of responsive web designs that users have already appreciated. And if we add asymmetric layouts and a broken grid, we get the main trend in the web site’s design in 2020.
