Happy Web Designer Day, fellow pixel pushers and code whisperers! The Internet landscape is ever-evolving, and to remain responsive, we’ve listed a few trends that we think will dominate into 2025.


1. Dark Mode

TL;DR: It’s a lifestyle, not a trend

Soon, Dark Mode won’t just be an optional feature — it’ll be the default. With its sleek, battery-saving prowess and eye-soothing benefits, it’s here to stay. It also enhances user accessibility by improving readability, and is necessary for many users with visual impairments. So, get comfy with those deep blacks and moody greys.

2. AI-Powered Personalisation

TL;DR: Your Website, Their Way

Artificial intelligence is set to revolutionise web design. Imagine websites that adapt in real-time to individual visitor preferences. Expect personalised content, dynamic layouts, user-journey optimisation, and AI chatbots that don’t just understand, but empathise with your visitors.

3. Micro-Interactions

TL;DR: Small Details, Big Impact

With attention spans becoming shorter, scroll effects, trigger-based animations, and tiny animations will take user engagement to the next level, turning every scroll into a delightful adventure. Think buttons that celebrate with a mini fireworks display when clicked, or forms that give a virtual high-five when submitted. These small touches add personality and delight, turning mundane tasks into moments of joy.

4. Voice User Interface (VUI)

TL;DR: Talk to Me

With the rise of voice assistants like Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant, VUI will become a staple in web design. Websites will begin to respond to voice commands, which should complement visual interfaces, rather than replace them, making navigation hands-free, versatile, and super accessible.

5. 3D Elements and Immersive Experiences

TL;DR: Feel the Web

Prepare for a web that seems to live and breathe. Elements such as transparent videos, liquid-metallic textures, and clay morphism will make websites feel more tangible. Advances in web technology will bring these more three-dimensional elements into our browsing experience, from interactive product models to virtual tours.

6. Minimalism and Maximalism

TL;DR: The Great Design Debate

Minimalism isn’t going anywhere, but we’re seeing a bold resurgence of maximalism —functional and simple websites with audacious colours or unexpected bursts of typography. Bold designs will be all the rage with these bright hues, strong typography, intense textures, and vigorous movements. It’s purposeful, but it’s also fabulously extra. Why choose when you can have the best of both worlds?

7. Anti-Design

TL;DR: Embrace the Chaos

In a world of uncertainty, web design is reflecting our chaotic reality with anti-design. Drawing on Brutalism, this trend pushes creative limits with heavy, aggressive elements, clashing textures, overlapping elements, and asymmetrical layouts. Anti-design also connects with audiences through raw and unfiltered imagery that feels more relatable, despite advances in AI and VR. It’s not for everyone, but for those who dare, it’s a statement-maker.
