In this guide I announce which will be the web design trends to follow in 2018.
I want to show you some examples of the most trending WordPress themes in the market.
1. Flat gradient backgrounds
This is an evolution of classic gradient already viewed some year ago. This effect it’s possible mixing two or more flat colors.
You can discover a set of flat colors here. This practice make the design more deep and adding a tone of movement.
2. Duotone colors
That’s a new practice which add two or more colors to text or images. This effect it’s useful if you want add a fake movement to the text.
Use contrast colors to create the perfect duotone. If you want create this effect on Photoshop read the official guide here.
3. Acid color overlay
That’s another one of the best web design trends. This practice which make your images more technics and professionals.
Usually it’s applied as overlay on real images about hero section.
4. Big typography with strong contrast
The big typo continue to be one of the main practice used on the web design. Now it’s often used above a real image overlayed where the overlay color is usually in contrast with the text color.
In adding the sans-serif fonts continue to dominate the word of web design although we are witnessing a slight resumption of the serif fonts.
5. Background animated
This practice is another trend which continue to exist in web design. The layer animated are often used as background into a section hero.
Usually the designer use some library which create a type of abstract network or think like that.
6. 3D objects background
This is the great return.. The 3d object are coming back strongly inside our web sites. The designer used more often this object abstract 3d to fill the background inside the section.
These objects are often used into an hero section to create a parallax movement or only as a static graphic element. We can say that this one is one of the most web design trends in 2018.
7. Wave shaped border
This is one of the revolutionary web design trends. By today you can stop to the classic horizontal section. Thanks to Elementor ( one of the best page builder for WordPress ), you can finally create amazing border shapes ( diagonal, wave, cloud, zig-zag .. ) without using any code or photoshop.
