The design-first approach will become a secondary attribute in the upcoming year. The design of digital products in 2019 will focus on improving people’s lives and meeting business goals. This suggests that simple design with asymmetrical layouts, mobile-first approach and a special focus on page speed are likely to prevail. So without any further ado, let’s have a look at 6 hot UI trends to stick to in the upcoming 2019.
An important factor influencing UI mobile trends in 2019 is clean edgeless screen design that’s been in the limelight since 2018 and is likely to become trendy in 2019 too. Recent releases of buttonless products from Google, Samsung, and Apple will definitely force mobile app designers to re-think their future designs. The buttonless nature changes the way UI design can be conceptualized, forcing users toward gestures. Losing the buttons means a larger screen and more place for implementing UI ideas for mobile app designers.
You can benefit from a buttonless screen by adding simple animations based on the gesture needed to perform a task.
Let a user swipe left to delete a message or pull down on a page to refresh it. There is plenty of in-app gesture ideas that can significantly change mobile user interface design and make it sleeker, more modern, and far more effective. Currently, almost every application uses in-app gestures to speed up navigation. For instance, you can double-tap a photo on Instagram and Dribbble instead of pressing it like a button.
Face ID is another noteworthy addition and amongst the hottest trends of 2018 which will surely transition in 2019. While it’s primarily known for enabling the user to unlock their phone, designers also started incorporating this technology into mobile apps too. Do you remember all your passwords – with face ID, there’s no need to.?
That’s an amazing opportunity for UI designers to smoothen the user flow, improve mobile app design, and make people feel more secure. Face ID is a mobile design trend you should start working on because 2019 will surely see this technology being much more widely used, especially when in e-Commerce app design.
