Web Design and Development Trends for 2021

Web Design and Development Trends for 2021

More than 1.94 billion websites around the world - whether it’s e-commerce or content websites, the old world’s sluggish websites are now transforming into web-apps that create a great user experience.

Web development technologies are creating a paradigm shift that tend to extend to mobile devices (Web-apps). While technologies like HTML5, JavaScript, CSS, and others are making web development exciting, there are various UI and UX changes that more businesses now want to be integrated into their websites.

So, let us dive deeper into some of the web design and development horizons to explore new possibilities in 2021.

Love Dark Theme

Love Dark Theme

Since a very long time the basis of the empty space was “white”. Pay attention to the design of the landing pages of large brands like Apple, Mercedes-Benz, and many others. They already use this dark theme. Apple added a dark theme in iOS 13. Following this, popular apps like Instagram, WhatsApp also added dark shades apps offering crazy dark theme to stand apart. Though this trend started several years ago. But then it did not receive wide recognition. A simple color change can render a completely different look. It makes design elements more visible and increases the contrast ratio. It causes less stress on the eyes and makes the site look more elegant. This trend is spreading and becoming more popular in all areas.

No Bright, Saturated Colors – Pastels are Here to Stay

Bright shades are another element of web design that is rapidly losing popularity. Popping colors cause more eye strain and do not coincide with the general color trends. Therefore, dimmed pastel tones have replaced bright colors.

Also, the usage of strict angles and balanced shapes makes the sites look too uniform. With the advent of asymmetry, any clearly verified figure loses its relevance.

No Video and Animation

No Video and Animation

Many sites added animations to liven up their site design. However, adding a video instead of images to the background of the main screen reduced the speed of loading the site.

Quick Page Loading

Quick Page Loading

One of the most important web design standards is ultra-fast load time. Quick loading times have been essential factors in UX and SEO for years, and it continues to be a top priority for websites that want to rank well and convert better.

A website that that takes more than two seconds to load after clicking a link may lose visitors, and it’s not likely they’ll be back, ever again!

AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages)

AMP-(Accelerated-Mobile-Pages)

As per Neil Patel, AMP-optimized rank better and faster and they most certainly convert more mobile page visitors into customers.

They offer an excellent user interface without difficult coding and makes the mobile-friendly experiences a reality.

Voice Search

Voice Search

Nowadays, each smartphone is already equipped with a digital voice assistant, for example, Siri for iPhones, Google Assistant for Android phones. AI-enabled smart speakers are also gaining popularity as voice commerce aids people to make purchases from their smart speakers.

19% of people use Siri at least once per day, and 55% of teens and 40% of adults use voice search daily. You must be amazed to know that 50% of search queries are predicted to be done with voice instead of text by the next year.

By 2022, voice search shall be dominating and integration of such amazing innovation into your websites is important. Giants like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and others are already on top of these technologies. You can use this technology to extend your eCommerce websites to smart speakers.

Smart speakers have boosted e-commerce through the integration of speech recognition and cognitive intelligence. Voice recognition technology helps consumers to seek information regarding products through smart speakers.

Artificial intelligence

Artificial-intelligence

Artificial intelligence or AI is not new to web development. Companies around the globe are working towards integrated solutions related to AI. Algorithms related to machine learning is helping businesses with automation and predictive approaches.

There are three ways companies can help their websites become intelligent -

  1. Supervised Learning
  2. Unsupervised Learning
  3. Reinforced Learning

Chatbots

Chatbots

Chatbots are the merger of cognitive intelligence and voice recognition technologies. These bots collect data from users through a series of questions. They then analyze these data, and come up with smart solutions. The bot tries to resolve the issue by itself or pass on the issue to a higher authority. Such a quick customer support can help your businesses grow. Above all they are a 24x7 solution to customer or sales support services.

Every year there are various upgrades in the technology and therefore it can be hard to chase trends. However, despite the changing perspectives, technical stacks, and ideas, the primary function of web development is to provide a high-quality user experience. And every web development company must keep this to the core of their service.

  • Pittsburgh Steelers

    I met Manoj while looking for an eCommerce developer for the Pittsburgh Steelers eCommerce site. Manoj was fully dedicated to the project with a can do attitude and had great expertise as well as experience in building as well as customizing the NOP Commerce software. Manoj was able to do work at a reasonable cost as well as expand and contract his team quickly when the workload ebbed and flowed.

    Manoj is exceptional at what he and his Execula team does. We had an urgent deadline for a challenging development project for 15 Ecommerce Solutions we needed to roll out in just six months. We contracted with Execula to develop the base code change to the e-commerce platform to serve our specific needs and guide us through the nop Commerce configuration process. He and his team just completed development and did an exceptional job with a challenging project. If you do e-commerce or need any development done for your business, Manoj / Execula will be reliable hard-working and deliver an excellent product and his estimates we're right on the money. He even quickly developed two important plug-ins for us which were not even in the original scope. If you want the best in development and a reliable source of Consulting and development you need to call Execula. I Highly recommend them. Thanks again Manoj for doing an excellent and professional job!!!

    Manoj saved us when our website wasn’t working. I sent out 4 requests for help using the NOP Commerce recommended developers. Manoj got back to he within minutes (others took days). He fixed one problem over the phone! Our site has never gone down again since. He helps with any issues immediately. Not only do I trust Manoj, after all we went through I won’t even think about using anyone else.

    Our eCommerce store had been do1wn and we were not able to collect payments for about 4 months, we consulted with many developers and they could not get it working. When I got in touch with Manoj at Execula he was very confident that he could get it working, so I gave him access to the server. To my surprise, he debugged the error and had it fixed within the hour.
    Since then we have started to collaborate with Manoj and his team and are very happy with the new website he has built for us, in record time and on budget. He finished it ahead of schedule.
    I would highly recommend Manoj for any Web Development work.

    I would never consult with anyone other than Manoj for custom e-commerce guidance. Not only is he great at what he does, he is personable, professional and reliable. I consider my company lucky to have found Manoj and would refer him to anyone who wants it done right the first time.
