What will be the sites in 2019
According to statistics from various analytical agencies, the average site visitor takes about 3 seconds to figure out whether he likes the site or not. And in the latter case, most likely switch to another, in order not to waste your time searching for the necessary information. Therefore, it is extremely important to ensure that everything is thought out to the smallest detail. In this article, we will describe how the site should be in 2019 and how to compete for the attention of visitors in a difficult competitive battle.
1. Improving download speed
As mentioned earlier, you only have a fraction of a second to impress the user. Agree, if the site does not load during this time, the probability that the user closes the tab, without knowing how great you are, is quite high.

2. First of all, first thing – airplanes, smartphones
All the same statistics show that 52% of users explore the Internet with the help of a smartphone. Therefore, the adaptive version of the site is another important item on the list of New Year’s Eve affairs. Note that it should be no worse, or even better than the full version of the site.
3. Time to play with fonts
They waited! In the trend – unusual fonts, which means that you can finally give free rein to creativity and add the same ornate calligraphic font (or maybe gothic?) In the first screen of the site. But remember, everything should be appropriate and in moderation. And the most important: the font must be readable.
4. Add a pinch of brutality
How to observe the “brutal” trend? The recipe is simple: when designing your design, use basic colors, with an emphasis on color or white blocks, and leave more free space.
Important! Colors should be correctly displayed in any browser and on any type of device.

5. Good old minimalism
Minimalism is really an old-timer of web design, because from year to year it consistently appears in all sorts of lists of trends. Not without him and in the coming 2019. Why do we love minimalism? For brevity, for airiness, for a limited, but such a correct number of colors. Isn’t zen and web design art?
6. Parallax effect
With the help of the parallax effect, you can “revive” the site. When scrolling the site layers (text, elements and images) move at different speeds, due to this, the design becomes dynamic and creates a certain effect of presence, which attracts the user’s attention.
7. I always take a video camera with me …
Let’s move away from statistics and move on to forecasts: next year, video content will capture more than 80% of all Internet traffic. Get ready for the fact that the video will appear more often not only in social networks, but also on most sites. Therefore, we forget about stock photos, we arm ourselves with a video camera (or rather, we turn to professionals) and go to shoot content for the site.
Which of the listed trends will really be popular next year, we will see soon. If you want to follow the trends, contact us – we will help you create a modern, attractive and efficient website. And if you already have a website, and you want to update it – we will make a redesign.
