Website design trends summer 2021

Categories | Learn

We have 10 fun trends in website design trends that we will see again this summer, and can we say we are obsessed!! Not only are the trends trendy on the website, but also in branding and on social media.

We would like to inform you that trends are nice for a little “refresh” of your website, but do not create a new brand every season, this takes a lot of time and your company comes across as less credible.

Use the trends as inspiration and don’t copy every trend if you want your brand original to shine in the market.

1. Retro font

They come in PEACE! Back to the ’70s, and yes, we are glad that the retro font is back, but let’s face it, has had ever been out of style?

Benefit:
The font will give a unique look to your website with a funky and playful vibe.

Downside:
Many retro fonts come from websites like Dafont, often these fonts are not available in a TTF. file, it is important that the font is TTF. so that it works on any website/device.

Another disadvantage is that a retro font can sometimes be illegible, may be nice for social media but not on your professional website.

2. Muted colors with a pop

Mutes colors are now widely used as a background for a website, light beige, sand, off-white, and so on. By bright popping colors such as neon shade, this gives an eye-catcher to your website.

Benefit:
The muted colors with the popping color give the website a fashion-looking vibe.

Downside:
Many brands use the same colors in this trend, think carefully about which colors match your values within your company and do not follow the flow of others.

3. Dark mode

You may have seen this trend a lot on our social media and in our shop, but how cool does a dark mood website look !!

It is classic, unique, and it calms the eyes, many people only use dark mode on their phone.

Benefit:
Unique and soothing to the eye.

Downside:
Not all colors work with a dark mood website.

4. Geometric Grids

We personally think this trend is timeless, especially on a website. You can make your call to action clear by applying this technique.

It is also nice for the eye to think in “boxes”.

Benefit:
Helps users navigate the website easily.

Downside:
Everyone uses the same shapes in the same way, try as we say everywhere to stay original and close to yourself.

5. Scrolling telling

For example, look at the iPhone 12 website, as you scroll down there is a story, the page of the iPhone 12 is a good example of scrolling count but very difficult (even for us) to make that.

You can already do a scrolling count with a simple effect by having photos and texts overflow in harmony.

Benefit:
Gives a playful effect when users scroll through your website.

Downside:
Can cause many bugs.

6. Gaussian blur

For example, look at the iPhone 12 website, as you scroll down there is a story, the page of the iPhone 12 is a good example of scrolling count but very difficult (even for us) to make that.

You can already do a scrolling count with a simple effect by having photos and texts overflow in harmony.

Benefit:
Gives a playful effect when users scroll through your website.

Downside:
Can cause many bugs.

7. GIF

Say What ?! You can use Canva to create a GIF with fire photos you have made for your website. This is a nice way to, for example, give your about the page a nice twist and show more photos of yourself without it becoming too much.

Benefit:
Everyone loves GIFs

Downside:
Don’t use too much, max 1 GIF per page.
