Design Trends for 2019

What’s coming for 2019?

As a branding, design and digital agency, it’s important to keep the creative juices flowing. Here are just a few examples of what to expect over the next 12 months.

In 2018 designers have used mostly vibrant colours and this trend is just going to grow bigger in 2019. Colours will be even more courageous, with designers using supersaturated tones in their work. Pantone has already revealed their color trend forecast for 2019 so, this year, use bold colors if you want your work or business to stand out.

When most people hear about asymmetry they think about the lack of balance but asymmetry is so much more. Designers can use it to create harmony and to balance the whole composition by intentionally avoiding traditional balance. You can experience and play with the elements you are using, like typography, geometric shapes or 3d renders to create a unique outcome. Remember that the user’s eye will firstly see the bigger element and so on.


Design Trend

Merging ideas from a broad and diverse range of sources can have an amazing outcome. An eclectic approach to design can be pretty challenging but it can definitely bring a unique looking identity to a project.

Gradients are still here in 2019 and onwards.

Gradients have seen a huge comeback in late 2017-2018 and are here to stay even in 2019. With names like Apple or Instagram using them in their branding, this is definitely a winning choice in 2019 as well.

Augmented reality.

Augmented reality is making itself present in fields such as web design or app design. Many online stores have tried to include augmented reality into their websites as well. This is a relatively new trend so keep an eye on it in 2019.​​​​​​​

UI and UX 

With Google indexing mobile responsive website first, mobile websites are now a priority so it’s no wonder that mobile first design has become a trend. Mobile first design starts by designing the site for the mobile user first and after this the designer creates a version that will also work for the desktop users.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Fluid shapes are not something new, we have seen them in 2017 and 2018 but they will be even more present in 2019. Mixed with bold colors and intense gradients, fluid shapes are an essential web design trend in 2019.


Animations are huge this year. You can find them on websites, adds or in app design. Smooth transitions for buttons or a nice hover effect for a section can truly make a difference.​​​​​​​


Micro interactions. 

Micro-interactions are small animations used on mobile platforms to create subtle visual effects. This year we are going further than ever with these micro-interactions. We will find hidden animations behind every UI element, it doesn’t matter how small it is.
