Hyper-intuitive and visually incredible interface design trends awaiting us in 2020.

Mobile technologies are a fast-evolving medium for implementing our boldest business ideas. They allow interaction with customers at a new level, build stronger relationships with brands, and present them in the modern digital world, which is becoming even more mobile today.

Alongside the evolution of mobile apps from a technical perspective, we can also monitor the disruptive transformations in UI/UX design. In 2020, mobile users will see innovative design approaches implemented in hyper-intuitive and visually incredible interface designs. Here we are going to immerse into the top seven most mind-blowing trends in UI/UX design that are awaiting in 2020.

We could see lots of dynamics in user interfaces designed in recent years. Although 2020 is predicted to feature even more widely applied motion graphics, lovely micro-movements, and macro-animations.

Dealing with high-speed Internet connection standards this year, designers can take up the challenge of designing more dynamic user experiences. Short videos, artistic animated illustrations, and slightly visibly yet impressive micro-interactions — these are just several examples of how you can apply a new trend of Dynamic Visual Experience in mobile application design.

We expect to enjoy more dynamism, higher speed, and fewer limitations in the app idea implementation.

Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant, and plenty of other AI-powered voice-controlled technologies are now dictating the future of user experience design. The voice search queries are continually growing. Voice shopping, voice-driven smart home management, voice searching for everything possible in search engines — our modern technologies have started to listen to us even more.

According to Quoracreative, voice-based shopping is expected to jump to $40 billion in 2022. Statista reports that “the immense popularity of smartphones and their integrated virtual assistants such as Siri or Google Assistant have led to an explosion of voice search usage.”

These impressive statistics prove predictions about a complete transformation of mobile user interfaces for voice technologies. Mobile apps are turning into whole new voice experiences step by step.

Designers have already started deploying innovative design of voice interfaces powered by artificial intelligence and spiced up with fantastic motion design effects.

2020 is coming with new trends in digital illustration, including 3D surrealism, skeuomorphic design, a limited color palette, soft gradients, imitation of real-life textures, innovative approaches to depicting a human body, and beyond.

It has also influenced the mobile app design. You can see user interfaces with bold and fun digital illustrations even more often. Driven by the desire to innovate and implement artistic experiments, designers aren’t afraid of experimenting with bright and brave illustrations in UI design.

Now, almost every user interaction is accompanied by lovely micro-animations or supporting illustrations. And today, they really look like more extravagant artworks! You can see various art styles, techniques, and new digital illustration trends combined into one memorable picture that creates a powerful emotional impact on users.

The Passwordless Future

Are you still logging in mobile apps using an email address or phone number? There will be no such an option in mobile interfaces very soon. Modern UX design is quickly moving forward passwordless authentication.

Today, we can see a lot of applications empowered by a biometrical recognition feature. Fingerprint scanning, pattern detection, facial identification, and sign-in links. Companies such as Medium, Slack, Twitter, and WhatsApp are already using them, and even Google’s new login screens hint at a future beyond passwords.

During the last few years, we have seen the constant upgrading of facial recognition technology. Famous mobile phone brands, like Apple, Samsung, and Google, have even implemented it as a basic hardware feature that demonstrated the significant influence of this trend on the mobile development industry.

In 2020, face ID is expected to dominate over all other biometric authentication methods. It also means disappearing of the Home button in new user interfaces and further deployment of even more innovative design focused on gaining as much as possible from mobile front cameras and facial identification algorithms.
