What the Future of Web Design May Look Like
The future of web design is not so much about whether or not new technologies will be invented, but more about how the web designer will use the tools that are already available to create an unforgettable experience for their users. With all of these tools at our disposal, it’s important that we don’t just throw together a website and call it quits. The user should have a good experience on your site or they won’t come back.
2021 Web Design Trends
Technology & Design Shifts
So, what can we expect from web design in the future? The web designer will have a broader range of tools available to them. There is going to be an increased focus on advanced technology and this change in the industry will very likely result in a shift in design trends. A good example of this is Uizard (pronounced ‘Wizard’), a tool that allows users to sketch wireframes on paper and scan them into the SaaS. The SaaS will then convert the sketch into a usable layout. Additionally, we can expect more use of video, augmented reality, artificial intelligence (AI), voice search apps, etc.
Web design technology trends of 2022 are likely to have a significant impact on how users are able to interact with the web in general. With voice search apps being widely available, you must be prepared for your website’s visitors wanting to use this type of interaction when they visit your site!
Web design will be increasingly focused on using AI and machine learning. With this, you can expect to see more use of chatbots in web designs. The user experience (UX) is likely to improve because users can ask questions in their natural language rather than having to search for information like they do now. This change could make it easier for people who don’t know how to code or create wireframes to develop a website that still meets the needs of its visitors.
Web designers will continue to use features on the page that don’t require keyboard input, such as voice command, virtual reality, augmented reality, and so on. In 2022 and beyond, the visual side of web design will likely move towards minimalistic and simple design.
In the future, web design will employ dynamic content to adapt to user needs in real-time based on the location, device type, and other variables. This will result in a more dynamic web design that responds to its users’ needs as they enter the site. As this technology develops further over time, it can be expected to have an impact on website development efforts going forward.
As always, remember that your website’s content should be easily accessible by all potential customers regardless of what tools they’re using when accessing your site!
No-Code and Web Design
No-code is here to stay and it’s partnering with web design at a rapid clip. This is because no-code enables the user to create a site without having to know how to code. This means that businesses who want a website but don’t have the funds for a web designer will now be able to get their hands on one, thanks in part due to this tool’s ability to “teach” you how to design your own webpage!
While you can now build a website without knowing how to code, you still need someone who knows the ins and outs of web design. This is because while no-code may have all of the functions that coding has, a creative mind outside the boundaries of no-code are still required.
The market will likely see a rise in web designers entering the workforce and freelance world. The overall web design industry is expected to grow by nine percent. And, more jobs are expected to be created in this field over the next six years.
With that said, it is still possible to get hired without having coding chops if you’re able to demonstrate your ability to learn new programs quickly on the job. However, keep in mind that this scenario is becoming less common so do not count on getting into the industry without any prior programming knowledge.
Now that you know what the future may hold for web design, it’s time to gear up for it and shoot for the moon!
