User Interface (UI) design in 2020
2020 September 02
There is no doubt that website design and development has drastically changed over the years from the early 90s and 2000s and even from 2010 to 2015 websites, with new technology and design methodologies, designers and developers have their hands full.
One of the biggest rises in design is with User Interface (UI) design. UI design is part of the design process that prioritizes the overall design of the project with the functionality in mind, but not at the forefront like User Experience (UX) design.
As digital consumers and their experiences continue to evolve with technology and design, it is important for companies to not be behind the design trends! Here is what our web design and development Dallas experts find to be the biggest UI design trends of this year.
As we briefly explained above, UI design is focused on the design and graphical layout and elements that are in place on a website. This includes, but is not limited to the navigation, animations, videos, photography, text entries, white space and every other small but integral part of the design process!

This means that our websites follow the guidelines set in place by Google, which gives us a competitive advantage because we are always behind the latest trends such as these UI design trends this year!
UI design elements in 2020
What our web design and development Dallas experts have noticed are the biggest trends.
From social media platforms to Apple and Androids offering alternative themes for smartphone users, dark mode can change the entire design of a website.Dark mode changes the entire background to black or dark gray with light points to show the important pieces.
This also helps with blue-light, smartphone batteries and reduces eye strains! What should a UI designer keep in mind? How the element will show in dark mode and without dark mode.
Our Dallas web design services have been keeping tabs on voice search and its impact on websites, search engines and other elements of the digital world! This is because it was estimated that this year voice search would account for 50 percent of all search queries on search engines. While this might have fallen a bit short this year, it is important to continue to keep this on a designers and developers radar because it is still a rising factor in design and search engine optimization!
This is where User Experience (UX) design would work with UI design methodologies because UX designers can make sure that Alexa, Siri or Bixby is able to easily search your client’s website while UI designers can make sure it is modern and sleek!
The bolder, brighter the better! This is one of the most exciting trends that is happening in UI design in our opinion because it allows clients to jump out of their comfort zone of monotone colors. While there is nothing wrong with those colors, it is fun and makes a simple design difference between your website and others out there!
This is a bit of a new term for our web design and development Dallas experts, but this is a growing trend that is happening with websites because of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). These are design elements that appear to have 3D features and it easily can be utilized on VR and AR headsets and other types of this technology!
Those are the top trends our experts have noticed! Has this made you realize that your website is in a good or bad design place?
