While illustrations have already been big this year, they should take design to a new level in 2019, with recent statistics showing that they are seven times better for users than the average photo. Brands are also increasingly looking for vibrant and stylistic illustrations to reflect their brand tonality, unique illustrations and bold colors will make you stand out in a crowd of material collage masters ~

Pantone also revealed the color trends it predicts for 2019, so if you want your work to stand out, use bold colors.

AR is already making its mark in areas like web or APP design, and many brands are constantly trying to incorporate AR into their branding. It’s a relatively new trend, so be sure to watch out for it in 2019

1.8 Nature Photos

Today, designers are looking for more natural, unintentional photos, and this is an important trend in the future of graphics.

UI/UX trends

2.1 Mobile terminal first

Ever since Google implemented mobile responsive web sites, mobile has been the first choice for responsive web design. In the future, designers should think about mobile versions first, and desktop versions second.

2.2 negative space

Less is more. In recent years, we can see the use of negative space in almost all design fields, and such examples are only going to increase. Using negative space in UI design is also a good idea.

2.3 illustrations

As we said earlier, illustration has been a major trend in popular design in recent years. From landing pages to entire websites, illustration is taking the design industry by storm.

2.4 Functional ICONS

People naturally use associated dynamic linear ICONS to establish visual hierarchies and draw attention to areas they want the user to pay attention to.

2.5 Geometric fluids and asymmetric shapes

Mixing bold color schemes with strong gradients of geometric fluid, asymmetric shapes are essential web design trends for 2019.

2.6 Video Background

Studies have shown that videos on websites can increase conversion rates. A video can quickly get your message across in seconds and keep users on the site longer.

Nowadays, dynamic effect plays a pivotal role in the design industry. You can easily find them on websites, ads, or APP designs. A smooth transition button or a nice hover effect will do the trick.

Microinteractions can create a variety of subtle visual effects in an APP. In 2019, we will focus more than ever on the design of microinteractions, and will also see microinteractions hidden behind every UI element, no matter how small.

2.9 Fonts instead of pictures

With the recent focus on typography, many giants, such as Apple, have used a clear and unique font to make their point, and typography is slowly returning to the public. Perhaps images will one day be replaced by words?

2.10 Rasterize and overlap elements

Over the past few years, overlapping elements in web design have existed, and combining rasterization can create unique creative layouts. Always remember the mobile experience!

2.11 3 d illustrations

3D illustration has seen a huge boom in the past few years, with many major brands choosing to use 3D rendering in their products: sneakers, sports gear, packaging design, etc.

Third, typesetting trends

3.1 Big. Bold. Better

Fonts are starting to get bigger and bigger, a trend we see every year. But when you use large fonts, be careful to use them with minimalism, otherwise the design can get too crowded and lose its meaning.

3.2 Customizing Fonts

Many big brands now have their own fonts, which can improve brand recognition and uniqueness.

While the noise style is usually used in 2D animation, who says it can’t be used in 3D animation?

5.2 Flat 2D animation

In illustration, graphic design makes more use of shadow changes and gradient colors. In animation design, plane animation is still popular. 2D animations create movement in a two-dimensional art space, and most animations have storyboards in which the main action in each scene is drawn in comic book form. With a smooth transition, it can capture the user’s attention, and in this way, your message can be easily delivered to the audience.

3d animation looks amazing and is the perfect way to promote whatever you’re selling. Most big brands also use 3D animation in their AD campaigns because of their strong conversion rates.

6.4 large font

As we mentioned earlier, in 2019, large font design is an absolute trend, and a powerful word is enough to create a bold package.
