Internet is perhaps the very definition of the 21st century. It is a tool that has advanced rapidly and has become a resource that we have engaged with for almost two decades. In the enormous ocean that is the internet, websites have played a vital role and formed the very foundation that has lead the internet to become what it is today. Websites are tools for both the sides of the spectrum. They are great resources for the audience and are instruments that one can use to communicate with a vast audience on the internet. To see how others have put their identities on the Internet, we follow the best website designing trends.
This is perhaps the reason why every business, company, brand, etc, are trying their best to create a website that can communicate their ideas the best with the audience. In the past few years, we’ve seen some of the most incredible designs from website designers that have helped create an everlasting impact on the viewer’s minds and have also helped serve as an efficient device of communication. Want to get inspired? Well, you’ve come to the right place, here’s a list of some of the website designing trends that have captured our attention the most.
1. Scrolling animations
Interaction is probably one of the reasons why digital platforms like websites are preferred over other traditional media. Keeping this in mind, designers have tried several ways to make websites which audience can not only gain information from but can also interact with. One of those ways through which website designers are able to create this sense of interactions is via scrolling.
Scrolling is something we all do nearly for hours on the internet. Designers added a new perspective to scrolling and just transformed the most boring element of a website to the most interesting. Scrolling animations are transistors that take place as you scroll through the website. These could be subtle transistors but also could be great eye appealing animations that can grab the audience’s attention in a jiffy. By using these scrolling transitions, designers have been able to both interact with the audience and also convey information, thus these smooth transitions are in itself unique website designing trends.
2. Pastel Everything!
Colours play an important role in every design and that is no secret. Designers have been trying to play around with colour concepts and create something that stands out. However, this is an era that is known to have a taste for simplicity and designers have acknowledged this with colours that are both comfortable to view and extremely subtle, pastel colours.
Pastel colours are being used in many website designs and have become a core element in some brand’s brand identity. Considering the fact that most of these days have an eye out for minimal designs, these colours complement minimalism the best. All said these colours that must most definitely be on your list if you’re looking for a colour scheme to use for your website design.
3. Those beautiful parallax animations
Parallax animations like scrolling animations are used in websites to emphasise on the website’s interactivity with the viewer. As we say, the more the merrier the better, parallax animations are another option that designers have perfected to make websites unique and appealing. Since the web page designs, today are getting complex and designers are able to utilise advanced options that allow them to separate web page elements into foreground and background, this allows them to create a parallax effect that creates a greater sense of involvement by creating a sense of a three-dimensional space.

In an age where designers are trying to take inspiration by looking back into the history of designs, neumorphism is an expression that has explored those inspirations to the fullest. Neumorphism is a technique that combines modern design and outdated design elements together to bring another unique style to life. This style was incorporated into minimal designs and was mostly used to create a sense of familiarity and realism. This style is still being explored and is probably the right path to take if you’re looking for a unique and futuristic approach towards your next website design.
5. Keeping it abstract
Abstract art is no stranger to the trend that we live in today. This style that would generally look like an option with too many constraints has been cracked by designers and is being used in designs that appeal to viewers as bold and quirky. Abstract shapes, art, patterns, etc, are being used in compositions that are complex and that give an energetic feel to the audience. Abstract art is the most experimented form of art in design and is being used in scenarios that one could never imagine it in a few years ago.
Summing it up
Those were some of the most mind-boggling and intriguing design trends that websites designers have made use of to create some of the most exquisite designs that are also extremely practical. Designing is a continually evolving process that can never have a full stop and that too many designers are exactly the reason they love what they do. There can never be one rule or one good trick in designing which explains just how creative one can get with websites. The day and age we live in today can be defined as an “experimental age” as designers are constantly trying to explore unique ideas and break conventions that have defined website designs since ages.
That is and should always be our approach towards design. One mustn’t be afraid to experiment and venture away from the conventions that have been set. Because when we challenge ourselves to rethink, re-innovate and redesign, designs become much more practical and beautiful.
